    Default 'Ghost Estate' Report due out this morning

    Should make for interesting reading - anyone know when it's available to the public?

    No doubt that they will suggest knocking most of these estates so FF/FG/ Labour landlords will have no problem renting their properties to social welfare individuals and the State picking up the tab.

    Wow, just looking for this report and there is a large amount of propaganda from the government parties about this. Haven't read all of it, got sick reading it! still looking for the report.

    Ministers Finneran and Cuffe publish National Housing Development Survey « MerrionStreet.ie Irish Government News Service
    Cuffe will examine options on unfinished estates once survey is complete / Latest news / News / Home - Green Party / Comhaontas Glas

    Apparently Dublin has less than 10,588 units that are built and empty OR that have started to be built but building has ceased (and are obviously) empty.

    That's an overhang of less than a year. With no building activity going on at the mo we could easily have a shortage of units for sale in the coming years. If the economy picks up we could easily see quite substantial house price increases in the medium term.

    I call absolute ************************************************ on this one. Unless they're excluding apartments.

    Dublin residential building was never the big problem. The problem was the vast quantities of commercial space and residential outside of dublin.

    P.
    Just after going through the figures again and this time I've included ALL of the following categories of empty units (last time I left out units that were still actively under construction):

    Complete & vacant
    Near Complete - no building activity
    Near Complete - with activity
    Wall Plate - no building activity
    Wall Plate - with building activity
    DPC complete - no building activity
    DPC Complete - with activity
    Founds to DPC level - no activity
    Founds to DPC level - with activity

    and there are 11,998 units in Dublin that fit into those categories above.

    The only categories I left out were "Complete and occupied" and "No construction started".

    That is nowhere near as much as people believe there is.

    No chance of that happening anytime soon.
