Rental Chart in today’s Irish Independent
Via Charlie Weston in Independent.ie:
It now costs €70 more to rent than it did last year, a rise of 5.2pc. Over a year, the additional cost works out at €840.
Rents have risen so much that they are now €373 a month higher than the previous peak they hit during the property bubble in 2008, according to the latest Daft.ie rental report.
Dublin rents are up almost 4pc in the past year, with the average monthly cost in the capital now €2,044. This is €76 a month more expensive than the same period last year. This means it is costing a Dublin family €912 more a year for accommodation.
Anne-Mare McNally, Social Democrats spokesperson on Consumer affairs, and Dublin MidWest by-election candidate, said:
“The only solution is to put in place a mandatory country-wide rent freeze for at least two years until increase in supply drives prices down
“Berlin and other cities have recognised that pricing ordinary people and families out of renting is a disaster for a city, for its people and for the economy. Berlin has limited rental increases to the rate of inflation and set caps on maximum rents. We urgently need these kinds of protections here. It’s time that this Fine Gael Government prioritised the ‘locked out generation’ – those for whom even renting a home is now becoming a daily struggle, never mind owning one.”

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?
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”.
‘A single BEDROOM available in one bedroom apartment MONDAY TILL FRIDAY ONLY ‘
I think that should say SITTING ROOM €570 to sleep in a communal area…but only Mon-Fri….
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….”
The government promised years back that it would bring in a deposit-retention scheme for landlords and tenants. What’s happened since? https://t.co/7LNFEqJ0EQ
