The latest report from Daft.ie has some pretty interesting findings..
House prices in Dublin increased by 2.7%, while in other places around the country annual increases were as high as 18%.
The housing shortages persist: just 25,000 homes were on the market on December 1st this year, the lowest for this time of year since 2006. Nonetheless, the outlook for the housing market looks much healthier now than it did in 2014.
Perhaps most importantly, the mortgage rules mean that whatever else happens, house prices cannot engage in the destructive upward spiral that took place in the decade to 2006.
