Regular wages and purchasing homes

In the current market, there is an increasing want and need for housing in Ireland, especially in populated cities such as Dublin. With this increasing demand, prices of homes and rent are rising each year. One problem that many soon-to-be or want-to-be home owners face now is the inability to effectively save for a home when they are paying high rent fees month after month.

The Central Statistics Office of Ireland notes that the average full time worker made around €45,611, while an average part time worker made around €16,600. Using surveys on these two numbers, we can say that the average worker in Dublin makes around €37,000 per year.

These numbers seem to allow a single person to be able to obtain a mortgage and afford a home, but if you were to add into the equation any additional expenses, such as children, rent or transportation, there would be a significant amount of money deducted from those average numbers.

The national average rent in Ireland is €1,122 per month. If you are interesting in living in Dublin, …

RTE Primetime featurs Irish Mortgage Brokers

We were asked to take part in an interview on Primetime about house prices and whether or not they were starting to show signs of falling. Our view is that they will fall in time (probably in a damaging way) but that it won’t be soon because supply is still above demand and price indicators like rents are still rising. This is damaging for first time buyers and those stuck paying high rents.

Online mortgage broker

We have been working for quite some time on creating an online mortgage process. The first time we did this was about 12 years ago but that was too far ahead of its time and the banks basically laughed at us. That has changed and now in 2019 we hope to make the proposition of an online mortgage process a reality, we’ll make it possible for people to do most of the process over their phone in an easy to use mobile environment. Stay tuned and we’ll let you know when this choice becomes available!

TodayFM Last Word features Irish Mortgage Brokers and Joan Burton to discuss bank taxation

We took part in a conversation with Matt Cooper on The Last Word about bank taxation with Joan Burton from the Labour Party. We tried to make the point that short term thinking about bank taxation is a mistake, that we are better off getting the maximum amount of money back to the state rather than losing bank value in order to score a short term political win.

Drivetime: ESRI property report, November 2017

We spoke to Mary Wilson on RTE’s ‘Drivetime’ show about the ESRI Report which stated that property prices would continue to rise for several more years into the future. We know of no significant measure that will reduce the upward momentum of prices at present. In a worrying sense you also don’t see any yield compression – that means that as prices are rising so are yields, this typically indicates a normal relationship with prices and yields (in a bubble yields often drop as the toppy capital prices far outweigh yields).

Sunday Independent: We must speak to banks in language they understand and make them pay price

This is our article that appeared in the Sunday Independent when Karl Deeter was covering a column for Charlie Weston on the 5th of November.

We need to speak to banks in the language they understand, not the language they ‘tell us’ they understand, but the actual language they speak. That language is the language of money.

The ongoing tracker scandal doesn’t cover many of the mortgage holders who lost trackers – many banks took them away from landlords as a part of granting them longer interest-only periods and with some of the biggest institutions these borrowers aren’t covered.

While some may have a hard time feeling pity for landlords, I would remind them that you can’t delight in their financial pain then scratch your head when they jack up rents and squeeze tenants for all they can in order to pay the new higher cost of lending.

Banks are as big a cost to this country as many aspects of public health, we spent more bailing out banks than we did on curing cancer in the last eight years.

Who provides mortgages in Germany and who are the largest providers?

The provider of mortgages in Germany is always a banks. You usually use your bank where you already have your account because they can make you a better offer with better conditions. But there are also websites where you can compare different providers.

In order to clarify this question, the “Who is Who” of the real estate financiers in Frankfurt is gathered once a year. Max Herbst, owner of the FMH financial consulting and grand seigneury of the German bankers, lends the FMH Award. For the past 25 years, Herbst has been analysing the conditions for real estate loans and has regularly selected the best suppliers of the year for four years.

A total of 14 members of the Board of Directors and eight directors and department heads had been present, including Wolfgang Müller, the board of BBBank, Michiel Goris, CEO of Interhyp, or Dieter Pfeiffenberger, CEO of BHW Bausparkasse. An award will be awarded to those who, with their Baufi offer in the 50 weeks of last year, had the highest average value of their category. For comparison, Herbst …

The Times: Maybe I’ll buy a home after the apocalypse

We were mentioned in the Times of Ireland recently in an article on housing crashes “It seems we’re due another property crash, that’s if the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development and financial adviser Karl Deeter are anything to go by. Both said in the summer that Ireland was at risk of another housing bubble and subsequent bust, with the latter going so far as to pin the date to sometime in the early 2020s”.
