The latest Daft rental report for Q1 2010 was released this morning.
The report found that rents fell by just under half a percent in the first quarter of 2010. Having risen in January, rents fell back slightly over the past few months and the average rent nationwide now stands at just under €760.
The findings of the report show a lot of variation between different areas around the country, but overall tentative indicators are that the market is beginning to stabilise.
Read the full report, including a commentary by Jill Kerby, Personal Finance Journalist with the Sunday Times, at www.daft.ie/report.
Daft economist Ronan Lyons has some further analysis over on ronanlyons.com, including a look at exactly how much extra certain white goods can add to a property's rental value, with specific focus on the rise and fall of the "dishwasher premium"!
