Research on Irish Housing Market

    Hello All,

    Just wondering if anyone has gone to the trouble of getting as much serious research as possible on the irish housing market (OECD, IMF etc., Academic, Institutions (Banks etc)...) and consolidated it into a central location?

    Or even a thread solely for links to various research papers, reports etc. that are out in the public domain.

    Trying to do as much reading up as possible on the issue but actually overwhelmed at the amount of crap/conjecture/ramblings that i have to wade through to get to anything substantial that is actually worth reading.

    Any help/links much appreciated.

    As a start here are some i've already found.

    UCD Working Paper by Morgan Kelly:

    Paper by ECFIN member

    Had a few others but lost the links...

    If there has been anything produced, wrote or broadcast on the Irish property market since 2006 that isn't from a bank or some other VI, it will be on the There is a lot, but if you want the best collection of property related info you will just have to wade through it.

    Cheers Senna, Prop Pin is good, but also a lot of that crap/conjecture..blah blah blah on there - maybe i should have opened the thread there, dont think it will make much difference though seems to be fair bit of overlap in readers/posters.

    not really interested in newpaper reports (unless they accuratly site/link the work they are based on)- looking to see what people who have really spent time properly studying the issue think.

    here is an interesting one

    From a guy in NUIM - try's to account for both demand AND supply factors in modeling irish house prices (in response to studies that only look at the demand side), has interesting things to say about IMF and The Economist analysis/estimates. Was written/is based on around 2003 data - would be good to see similar study but with dataset extended.
