Towards a Better Approach to Housing Policy
Wednesday, 3 October 2012
Dr. Padraic Kenna was recently asked by DAFT.ie to comment on its House Price Report, now in its 52nd edition. This is based on an analysis of the full database of properties posted for advertisement on Daft.ie up to the end of September 2012, including the 15,000 posted in the third quarter of 2012. This figure represents a large percentage of the available properties for sale in the country and therefore gives a very accurate and timely reflection of what is actually happening in the Irish property market. Figures are calculated from econometric regressions using standard methods. Properties classed as sold are those that are no longer listed in daft.ie which were marked as sale agreed before coming off the site.
