A Kerry auctioneer says there's no evidence of vulture funds bulk-buying properties in the county.

So-called vulture funds are investment funds which generally seek to purchase properties which are in financial distress.

In recent months, the government imposed some restrictions to lessen the impact of large investment funds bulk-buying housing developments; this includes a stamp duty charge on purchases of ten or more homes.
