During a decade of rampant property price appreciation in NI and RoI, buy-to-let emerged as the darling of investment options for Irish consumers. Year-on-year growth of 10%-plus became the norm, with anything less deemed a disappointment. In one year alone, NI property values gained 46% (2006), while RoI values gained 30% in another (1998). It reached the stage where there were two types of property investors in Ireland: those who had an investment property and those who wanted one.
However, with prices now in reverse and there being little likelihood of anything other than, at best, moderate annual gains for some time to come, the situation has changed dramatically. Negative equity, low rental yield and oversupply of rental accommodation are the new bywords. Alongside this new reality, significant tightening of lending criteria on the part of lenders has all but closed the door on new entrants to the sector.
Main report themes:
To what extent will recent declines in property prices impact upon Irish consumers’ evident preference for property as an investment option?
With the era of rampant capital gains now seemingly over, will a new breed of property investor emerge: with a longer-term perspective and focused on regular income over fantastic gains?
With rental yield poor in both sectors – and an oversupply in some areas – is there any incentive for new investors to enter the buy-to-let market?
The extent to which the credit crunch, and cautiousness on the part of lenders, is affecting the buy-to-let sector.
Given the demographic trends in both NI and RoI, what are the prospects in terms of demand for private rental accommodation going forward?
