Would You Shell Out €35,000 For This House?

by Edited by Jimmy Rhatigan

Do you fancy the bones of a new family home for what appears to be a bargain buy at €35,000?
You can set the ball rolling by attending an online auction, bidding for what should eventually be a home, sweet home and then buy yourself a good shovel.
Should you secure the auction lot at the heart of an unspoiled South Kilkenny landscape then the words of a famous sing-along will come into play.
It will be a case of don’t forget your shovel if you want to go to work.
It might also be a good idea to purchase a hammer, saw, a few bags of nails and a handful of other assorted tools.
Throw on the smocks and Bob’s your uncle Mossy.
On offer at Youbid.ie’s next online auction is what is being described as a substantial unfinished property among spectacular rural scenery.

The 250 square metres, four-bed house-to-be (pictured) in the townland of Brownstown, near Tullogher Village, goes to auction on May 27 with an Advised Minimum Value (AMV) of €35,000.
It is on an elevated site of almost half a hectare (circa. 1.2 acres) about 3km from Tullogher Village and 6km from New Ross.
Kilkenny and Waterford cities are a little over half an hour away and access to the M9 motorway is 12km away at Junction 11, Mullinavat.
The house is a bare concrete block shell with unfinished roof and floor timbers.
Commercial and residential properties from12 counties are listed in the coming auction.
Youbid.ie’s previous live-streamed events have seen 83% of properties listed sold at an average of 14% over reserve prices.
Should the latter happen on this occasion that would elevate the purchase price to €39.900 (inclusive of a possible 14% of €4,900).
The properties for the May 27 auction are listed on the platform.
