Survey finds significant differences in Auctioneers charges

A saving of up to 2000 euro can be made on the sale of a house worth 180,000 euro depending on the auctioneer chosen. This is the finding in a survey of 11 auctioneers conducted by the Kerry Today programme. Commission charged by an Auctioneer can range from 1.5 to 2.5% with the average in Kerry at 2%. Chief Executive of the Institute of Auctioneers and Valuers in Ireland Alan Cooke reacts to the survey.
