There is really good graph on this website. It shows that unemployment in Northern Ireland started to fall in 2013. This coincides with the bottom of the housing market.


"This statistic shows the unemployment rate in Northern Ireland from 2000 to 2019. Unemployment in Northern Ireland peaked in 2013 when there were 7.5 percent of the population unemployed, compared with just 2.7 percent in the most recent reporting year of 2019."
