Ronan Lyons, Daft’s in-house economist, commenting on the latest Daft research on the Irish property market.

This latest House Price Report shows some signs of health in the market, amid a broader problem of a chronic lack of supply. The first sign of slightly better health is that the total number of properties actively on the market at any one time has risen, compared to three months previously (June compared to March). This is only the second time in five years that this was the case – the first was the same quarter last year, so it remains to be seen whether this is merely seasonal or the start of a bigger trend.

The second measure of slightly improved conditions in the housing market comes from a comparison of the asking and sale prices. Each property registered as sold on the Property Price Register is, where possible, matched up with a listing in the archives. This allows the inclusion of variables such as property type and size and also enables the calculation of the Transaction Price Index in the report. The trends in this index confirm the more precisely estimated trends in list prices in the 54 markets around the country: largely stable prices in Dublin but still increasing steadily elsewhere, albeit not as fast.

Residential property prices are up almost 7% compared to a year ago

THERE HAS BEEN a 6.9% rise in the price of residential properties in the year to the end of May, according to new figures published by the CSO.

The data shows that the rate of increase is slowing down – prices were up 0.2% last month compared to a 0.3% rise in April and an increase of 0.5% recorded in May of last year.

In Dublin, property prices were 4.8% higher than a year ago and increased by 0.1% in May. Dublin house prices increased by 0.4% in the month and were 5.7% higher compared to a year earlier.

Expected Bank of England interest rate cut could provide Brexit boost

The UK economy could be given a post-Brexit vote boost this week as expectations mount that the Bank of England will cut interest rates to a new historic low.

Bank governor Mark Carney has already signaled policymakers on the Monetary Policy Committee would vote to cut rates over the summer, suggesting a cut in July or August.

Economists said it was “now probable” rates will be cut on Thursday, with financial markets pricing in a reduction from 0.5% to 0.25%.
