    Descriptive info: 08/04: Top end of the market feels the pinch, as asking prices fall.. The fall in asking prices in early 2008 marks a change from late 2007, when asking prices remained static, but many sellers accepted offers below the advertised price.. "Sellers appear to have accepted that the downturn in the housing market may last a while", commented Ronan Lyons, economist with Daft.. "With huge numbers of property for sale in many parts of the country, sellers are now finding they have to reduce the asking price in order to attract interest from buyers.. ".. The nationwide average fall of 1.. 2% hides significant regional variation over the first three months of 2008..

    Descriptive info: 03/04: Affordability Continues to Improve.. The EBS/DKM Affordability Index is an indication of a first time buyer couple s mortgage paying commitments in the early years, on the presumption that each of them is on average earnings, buying the average new house and that their mortgage is worth 90% of the value of their property.. The Index takes into account changes in mortgage rates, changes in the level of mortgage interest relief, increases in average earnings and any other economic or external factor that impact on overall affordability.. The index found that the average working couple buying their first home would spend 22% of their net income on their mortgage repayments today compared with 23% at the end of last year, and 26.. 4% at the end of 2006.. This improvement represents a reduction in average monthly mortgage repayments of 137 between December 2006 and March 2008.. The continued improvement in buyer affordability is due to continued decreases in house prices and the introduction of new mortgage interest relief bands in Budget 2008.. Dara Deering, Director of Membership Business, EBS Building Society commented on the index: We expect affordability to improve further for first-time buyers this year on the back of slowing house prices and possible decreases in  ...   they intend to hold onto their property for more than three years.. A first-time buyer couple purchasing a property today would be better off by the end of 2011 than if they had rented from today.. Annette Hughes, Director, DKM Consultants explains: We selected two typical first-time buyer properties in two distinct Dublin locations.. By Year 4, the buyer would be better off by over 5,000 and by Year 7 even after selling his property and paying his transaction costs, the buyer would be better off by almost 41,000.. It is important to stress that this conclusion is based on our assumption for key variables, in particular house prices.. Yet, improved ceilings for mortgage interest relief and the Rent a Room Scheme have tipped the balance of incentives for the first time buyer couple towards buying as opposed to renting in the medium term.. Garreth Murphy, Editor, Irish Property Buyer said: First-time buyers wondering whether to rent or buy a new home now have guidance in the analysis by DKM Economic Consultants, which shows that purchasing a new home offers better value in just four years.. The latest EBS/DKM Affordability Index is published by Irish Property Buyer magazine and can be found at.. irishpropertybuyer.. ie.. or at.. dkm.. ebs..

    Descriptive info: 14/02: Rents stagnate as supply increases by almost 50%.. This increase in supply is more than likely a consequence of investors who had put up their properties for sale in 2007 or who had left their properties vacant up to now releasing more properties onto the rental market.. These properties have pushed up the overall level of supply and contributed to the slowdown in rents, particularly in non-city areas.. Commenting on this, Dan O Brien, Senior Economist with the Economist Intelligence Unit, said: "The most likely explanation for the increase in the supply of properties to rent is that those who invested in property but had not sought a rental income are now doing so.. "Rents have now stopped increasing for the first time since they started to rise in mid-2004, when Ireland opened its labour markets to the new EU members," said Ronan Lyons, Economist, Daft..
