This time we teamed up with our friends at propertyweek.ie and MyHat.ie as well as with Frank Quinn who is a lecturer in Property Valuations in Senior College Dun Laoghaire to bring you what we feel is a very comprehensive overview of the Irish investment property market.
We used four different methodologies to look at valuations, discounted cash-flows, the investor method of property valuations, and then two unique versions that look at the performance of a property versus bank deposits factoring taxation in both leveraged and un-leveraged examples.
We have published the analysis element of what we have done and welcome any critique readers may have, we accept that every variance and eventuality can never be fully covered, having said that, we have attempted to give a very genuine snapshot of what the market environment would need to look like in order for property to become a meaningful performing investment again.
It is our belief that in order for investors to return to the market that property has to stack up again in terms of risk/reward and yields which outperform risk free benchmarks.
