Lest there was any doubt about the Irish property crash……

House prices dropped again in April

Average house prices fell again last month with buyers paying almost €2,500 less than buyers in March, as interest rate increases and continuing uncertainty about stamp duty reform impacted demand.

  • The index assumes each of the couple is on average earnings and buying the ‘average’ new house

    …..which makes it as deliberately misleading as all the other house price index are.

    Are there really enough fools in the world to sustain these riggeed markets indefinately?

    This is really rather interesting. The US is officially on the slide, Ireland is officially on the slide.
    It’s starting to move.

    I see this news has had a big impact on the UK press with Ireland being such a remote country to the UK. NOT!!!

    Ireland is one of the most bloated property markets. The governement there will try to bail out the market and all ready has started this by doubling tax relief on mortgages (government subsidies to housing only push the price up when there is a shortage and the buyer pays the same each month….it just helps the speculators and developers)
