Today we were delighted to do the first of what will hopefully be a regular slot on the Business section of the Breakfast Show on Newstalk 106 with Conor Brophy. The topic today was that of Site Value Taxation (we had an article in the Sunday Times about it this week), property prices and then a mention of our Investment Property Profile which was done in association with PropertyWeek.ie and ODKM Architects in Terenure.
We looked at some properties in the Dublin market that might obtain a 7% yield, they require some work (sweat equity!) and although they all didn’t come out at 7% some were above 6%. This is helping to reinforce the believe that the market in general has not rationalised but that in particular you can find good value if you look for it.
Aidan McLoughlin of of the Independent Trustee Company was also there with some fascinating insight into non-bank lending that is occurring whereby pension funds are lending to businesses who cannot obtain credit via the banks, this is some compelling evidence that credit is not forthcoming to SME’s in the way that we are being told that it is.
