It really is shocking and disgraceful what's allowed to be passed off to people. I rented for around 10 years before buying a place in North County Dublin. When I was renting you could get a decent 1 bed apartment minutes from the city centre for around €700. At that time a small mortgage cost roughly the same so you could actually save to buy a place of your own.

Requiring 2 incomes to be able to properly afford it.

People who dont feel the need to start families can just go **** off and start sharing miserable places with the others who dont feel the need to procreate (yet).

Straw bale houses are actually a thing though!

When I left Dublin in 2009 I was renting a 1 bed flat in Phibsborough for about €700 a month. Most recently my sister was paying the same rent to share a house with 4 other people. It is insane how bad it's gotten and I can't see it getting any better any time soon.

I was renting a big one bed in Santry for €700.00 up to 2017!! Last I heard, same place was renting out at €1350 per month. Crazy.

I bet there are very few people who have had a similar increase in income over the past 10 years.

Yes. I'm sure landlords incomes have stagnated and all those ridiculous increases are because of the taxman.

Yep. My landlord increased my rent by 40%. I'm sure every penny of that is going to the taxman. And in my case I know he's paid off the mortgage so it's not like he was losing money on that. the increase was purely for the taxman

Anyways, there's loads of threads about rent. Maybe should move the discussing there rather than derailing one of my favourite threads? (Yes, I realise the irony of posting what I did and then posting this. I also realise it's backseat modding. But i do really like this thread. It's one of the few I subscribe to)
