          What will the hostory books write about NAMA. I really hope it is a success as I feel the government is going to bulldoze it into being no matter what opposition or alternative. But I feel it won’t be as the points made by those economists that oppose it ring more true.

          As you say, yields look like being lower than estimated. Those estimates only happened a couple of months ago! Think what could happen over 10 years! I’m not confident of any government ‘predictions’.

            You mention in your article CSO data for rents. I am looking to source this information as raw data for from today as far back as possible. So basically average rent prices in Ireland over the years. Can anyone suggest where I find this. I cannot see it on CSO

              Hi Killian,
              You can get data on rents going back to 1998 from CSO publications on the consumer price index, not in spreadsheet format unfortunately but in PDF which you can then transcribe.
              If you want to email me, I can send you what I have (email address is on my contact page).
              All the best,

                Hi Killian,

                I am about to rent a small 520 sq.ft. office in Harolds Cross – just beside the canal bridge. I would like your comment on expected rental range (excluding service charges). Have I any hope?

                  Hi Eamon,
                  You might have a look at Savills and CBRE who do reviews of the commercial rental market. I’ve heard rents are down by between 20% and 50% depending on what you’re looking for.
