Irish Hpi Enjoys Searing Momentum As Prices Forge Upward

Recommended Posts


DUBLIN, Feb 28 (Reuters) - Irish house prices rose 10.2 percent year-on-year in January, up from 9.3 percent the previous month, with the average price for first time buyers crossing the 250,000 euro ($296,900) barrier for the first time.
The Irish housing market, which began to surge during the country's "Celtic Tiger" boom in the late 1990s, continues to defy expectations of a slowdown.


DUBLIN (Reuters) - Irish mortgage lending grew at a record pace in January as
higher interest rates failed to put the brakes on the country's booming property market
, central bank figures showed on Tuesday.
The bank warned last month that rapidly climbing house prices and big increases in household indebtedness, which is rising at over three times the rate of income growth, were two of the main risks to a thriving economy.

They are all alone now with HPI and are within a few percentage points of having the most expensive housing on the planet, at all at all.
