found this ad (above) for an apartment in Holystown [Dublin 15]

I did a reverse image search on one of the clearly-not-Holystown photos and it’s of Mrytle Beach Hotels in the US [South Carolina, on the Atlantic coast of America]. What the Hell’s going on?

Anyone?

The container listed on Daft as a one-bedroom apartment

Wesley Ryan of Boskill, Caherconlish, failed to seek planning permission for the 40 foot by eight foot container which is located in the equestrian centre he owns with his mother.

…The property came to the attention of the council and the public when it was advertised to rent on property website Daft.ie for €125 per week.

Mr Ryan told the Limerick Leader that he originally planned to rent the container out for a month, but had decided to remove the advertisement due to what he describes as “cyberbullying”.

Thanks Zachler

This morning

The latest quarterly Rental Report by Daft.ie is out.

In Dublin, rent growth in the last quarter was 4.5% compared to a year earlier, bringing average rents to €2,023 a month – with available rentals continuing to slow.

Daft economist Ronan Lyons says:

“Availability on the rental market remains at levels that were unprecedented prior to 2015…For example, in the Dublin market, there were just 1,541 properties available to rent on August 1st. While that’s up from 1,121 two years ago, it’s well below the average of 4,700 for the preceding decade….”

Average monthly rents hit record level for 13th quarter in a row – report (RTÉ)

Meanwhile…

From top: a Daft vacancy; Daft owners Eamonn and Brian Fallon

In January, Sinn Féin introduced the Property Services (Advertisement of Unfit Lettings) (Amendment) Bill 2019. It aimed to stop poor quality accommodation – including overcrowded properties – from being advertised online.

We’ll be seeing crying chair-type ads from Daft.ie for some time to come as FF gang up with FG to cynically delay legislation to force Daft to vet ads for legality.

The Shinners tried to introduce their Property Services (Advertisement of Unfit Lettings) (Amendment) Bill 2019. It makes total sense and this was accepted by all, FG and FF included.

But, while FG and FF voted to approve the progress of the Bill, they both voted to delay any further consideration of the Bill for six months.

Meantime, looks like we might have to continue moral suasion on the Fallon brothers, Eamonn and Brian.

Maybe have a polite word with them if you come across them, I’m sure they’re decent people and would be aghast if they knew what sort of ads they’re hosting, and even the €8m dividends wouldn’t merit such despicable standards.

Dublin Rental Investigator tweetz:

Are DAFT facilitating landlords hiding the location of properties? New regulations governing the advertising of rental property must include a provision for the inclusion of the Eircode. What’s to gain from hiding “Newly Refurbished/BER Exempt’ property locations? #RaiseTheRoof

Anyone?
