Steady growth in Longford and beyond expected in 2017

Steady growth in Longford and beyond expected in 2017

 The Leinster Property Auction have indicated they expect another year of strong growth in 2017 with confidence remaining strong in most areas. 

According to a new report released by, the property market during 2016 increased nationally by 8%, and impressively over 9% in the Leinster region. 

Very similar figures were seen in 2015, showing the market is still recovering strongly with increases becoming more settled particularly in the urban areas which seen bigger increases earlier in the recovery. 

However a major challenge in 2016 was the housing supply shortage which looks to continue, thus feeding into the continued rise of house prices in 2017 and indeed for the next few years. 

With this increase in prices, The Leinster Property Auction are encouraging anyone thinking of selling this year to get in contact with them to arrange for a free property valuation.  

Last year saw a landmark year for the auction group with 6 public auctions in Leinster and an average success rate of over 93% which was the highest in the country. 

Patrick Folan of The Leinster Property Auction commented that, “We believe the success of our auctions is due to the large marketing campaign we undertaken in Ireland and abroad as well as strong working partnerships with local auctioneers across the province. We remain the only auction company in Ireland who do not charge any upfront costs to enter a property into auction.”
