Land sells for €30,000/acre after 5-strong bidding battle  

Post-auction report: Coastal holding

A circa 5.6-acre coastal holding exceeded its guide price by €38,000 when it went for auction this week.

Quinn Property guided the coastal holding in Ballynamona, Blackwater, Co Wexford at €130,000 ahead of the auction on Wednesday, September 1st.

Auctioneer, David Quinn, stated that the result demonstrates “the pent-up demand for land of all types, sizes and locations across Wexford and indeed, the south-east.”

“We had five bidders, mainly from non-agricultural backgrounds. It was fantastic to achieve a price of €30,000 per acre.”

He remarked: “The auction saw some coastal lands with stunning sea views brought to the market.”

“The property may have potential for a residential site, subject to the relevant planning permission being obtained.”

Furthermore, he said the property has an “excellent” location between Kilmuckridge and Blackwater, an area containing some of Wexford’s finest beaches.

The auctioneer offered the holding for sale in one lot.

On the day of the auction, bidding began at €80,000 and a bid of €90,000 “quickly followed”.

However, once the auctioneer announced that he would accept bids in increments of €5,000, bidding “shifted up a few gears”.

With new bidders entering the race, €160,000 was the highest bid before Quinn consulted with the vendor.

Upon his return, Quinn declared the property ‘on the market’ and declared that he would accept bids of an additional €2,000.

This prompted a new bidder to make an entrance at €162,000. Ultimately, three more bids were made and the hammer fell at €168,000 (€30,000 per acre).
