In today’s Irish Times.

A two-bed terraced house in East Wall, Dublin 3.

East Wall’s gentrification continues. The soon-to-happen move by tech giant Facebook, from south of the river in established and international-in-feel Hanover Quay north to East Wall, a proper Dublin community with a personality riveted together by its hardworking docker heritage.

… Property prices are rising rapidly but none have quite scaled the heights of 107 Church Road. This property sold for €135,500 in June 2015.

The house needed complete modernisation and it was Adrian Richards of Claremont Construction who extended it by adding a two-storey extension, making it about a third bigger. He says he’s spent €200,000 on the refurbishment. It now measures 192sq m/2,066sq ft and is back on the market, asking €525,000.

Richards has 25 years’ experience in flipping houses.

Amid speculation that Brexit may lead to higher house prices in Dublin, your headline asks “Will Dublin’s property market benefit from the vote to leave EU?”

Your definition of the word “benefit” clearly differs from mine.

“According to the CSO, Dublin house prices have fallen 2.1% since the start of 2014, bringing prices back to where they were in September 2013. Although the Dublin Meeja will claim the opposite. Doesn’t the Irish Times own myhome.ie?”
