    Some other headlines from yesterday for context

    Breakingnews: “Residential property prices have risen 85% since 2013; Dublin by 94%”

    RTE: “Property prices nationwide up 2.3%, Dublin prices slow”

    Does tweeter Frank above not realise the only part of the Irish Times operation that is turning a profit is, without which, the €1.5 million group loss in 2018 would have been far far worse. If property prices aren’t buoyant, then transactions will stall and that means will have less listings which means less profit.

    Well, falling houseprices are often a sign of concern not in and of themselves, but as they can be used as an indicator of the of possible downturns in the economy in general.

    Of course, the tweeter was in such a hurry to make his silly and facile point, and to tag a load of online publications to witness this searing observation, that he probably didn’t stop to consider this.

    But this headline is true – economic uncertainty affects the property market. For those of you that remember, a similar stagnation occurred globally (and in Ireland) following the 9/11 attacks – short, but significant. It’s not good for the economy, even if some benefit by selling before a downturn and buying within it. Much like high levels of consumer spending fuels a healthy economy even if you’re not in favour of materialistic consumerism. Think outside of your own personal ambitions.
