I am active in consulting for and advising a range of clients. Due to my areas of expertise, I have been engaged by a number of organisations, both Irish and international, principally but not always in relation to the Irish real estate market. These include an EU-level report (2013) on the relationship between energy efficiency and property market outcomes, and two studies – one on the Republic of Ireland for Smart Taxes (2011) and one on Northern Ireland for NICVA (2014) – on the potential of a site or land value tax to replace existing property taxation measures. Other studies include an analysis of Ireland’s productivity performance 1980-2011 and a report, through the EIU for Matheson Ormsby Prentice, on investors’ attitudes to Ireland as a location for FDI. I have also been engaged by a number of financial services clients in relation to various aspects of Ireland’s housing market.
In addition to my authorship of the Daft.ie Report, which has grown to become one of the most widely cited economic reports in the country, I am involved with two other quarterly reports, the BPFI Housing Market Monitor and the CPL Employment Market Monitor.
I consult regularly with investors, institutional and otherwise, developers and other groups interested in the housing market. Finally, I am a speaker at a number of events each year. If you would like to get in touch about any of these services, please contact me through this link.
