Rent or Buy?
This is just a short post I’m leaving here for posterity.
I’m once again in the process of moving house, and still renting. I’ve lived in dublin for around 8 years out of the past 15 or so, and it had always been a struggle finding somewhere to live, and it keeps getting worse.
I found an interesting website recently, which tracks proerty in Ireland and lists it along with commute times, etc. It’s really useful. Anyway, it has a little slider where you can adjust between houses ‘for rent’ and houses ‘for sale’. It’s pretty depressing looking at the difference between the two! Of course, it would be great to buy somewhere, but, in spite of the apparent supply in properties for sale, the prices are still very high.
