Another successful year at Coffey’s

2007 has been another successful year for Gerry Coffey Auctioneer, Valuer & Estate Agent, with houses, farmland and sites all selling very well. Despite some doom and gloom predictions in the property business, the Williamstown office of Gerry Coffey MIPAV has been very busy. ‘The prices around here represent excellent value for money, for example Spring Vale is a low-density development that features generous gardens and amenity spaces,’ said Gerry Coffey. ‘A choice of three exceptionally detailed homes is on offer, each designed and finished to exceptional standards. Section 23 tax reliefs apply and prices start from €179,000. Another exciting housing development is Corr on Tochair, Williamstown. This will be the first large development on the Dunmore road and with nine different house types, there is one to suit all tastes. The much-awaited show house will be launched on the market in the new year.’ ‘This is an exciting time for rural towns and villages, with many people eager to leave bigger centres of population for the benefits of smaller communities with better value for money.’ Auctioneer Gerry Coffey MIPAV is well pleased with the interest in one-off rural houses and farmland. As a rural based auctioneer, land sales constitute a strong part of Gerry Coffey’s property portfolio. In the last 12 months, he has overseen the sale of a number of important farmlands – again at record prices achieved for the area. ‘Our firm specialises in the sale of one-off rural houses and have sold a good many of these types of houses some with land in 2007. During 2007 the company launched their new property website. This progressive property company are at the cutting edge of technology and this is evident from the new website with many new and exciting features – one of which is the virtual tours. ‘This is the ultimate way to show your house at its full potential,’ according to Gerry Coffey. ‘Using a qualified auctioneer valuer and estate agent like our company to sell your property ensures that your property is given maximum exposure.  Virtual tours make good economic sense as research shows that 80 percent of house buyers use the internet to find their new home. Gerry has also been kept busy with a vast amount of enquiries and sales from overseas, especially in the UK. ‘There are still a lot of exiles living abroad that would love to move back to their home soil and we are one of the few Auctioneers which can offer a service which is second to none. ‘With all our properties so close to Knock International Airport, transfers from the airport can be arranged if required, or overnight accommodation. For people wishing to purchase their own house, the first consideration is the price of the property. In this respect, this region provides excellent value for money with good local services and a range of activities.’ Gerry promises that he can find properties to suit all pockets and needs. ‘Our results in the past number of years speak for themselves. We are also members of Institute of Professional Auctioneers and Valuers and we regularly participate in professional courses, aiming at keeping us up to date on new developments and ensuring that our clients have the best possible service. It’s essential that auctioneers selling your property are members of a recognized professional body.’ ‘We will continue to build on the first class service we provide and based on our local knowledge and professional qualifications. Nothing beats experience and qualifications. The property market has changed over the years and it is not a matter of just putting a sign up, to get your property sold it needs to be marketed to the widest possible audience.’ Gerry is currently in negotiations with prospective customers for many other properties in the area. Many of these deals are at an advanced stage and due to this he currently requires all types of properties in all areas.

Gerry Coffey’s team confidently look forward to 2008. ‘We are very proud of our performance during our first few years of business and we would like to thank all our clients for their support and custom.
