QB3 2016 Estimating Cash Buyers and Transaction Volumes in the Residential Property Sector 2000-201425/07/2016QB3 2016 Estimating Cash Buyers and Transaction Volumes in the Residential Property Sector 2000-2014
This article describes data used to address the issue of the volume of transactions and cash-only sales in Ireland’s residential property market over almost two decades. The approach employed here examines the proportion of total residential property sales attributable to cash buyers (or non-mortgage transactions) and provides new insights which allows for a deeper understanding of developments in the market. We find that at the pinnacle of Ireland’s housing boom, there were approximately 150,000 transactions, with cash buyers accounting for 25 per cent of these sales. Since then the volume of transactions fell to a low of 21,000 in 2010 while the share of cash purchases had risen to around 60 per cent in more recent years. The increase in the share of cash buyers reflects the sharp fall in the number of mortgages drawn down while the actual number of cash-buyer transactions is not necessarily atypical of the early years of the last decade. We also find that the turnover of residential property – or total transactions as a proportion of the housing stock – has fallen sharply since the crisis and is currently low, both by historical and by international standards.
QB3 2016 The New Paradigm - Analysis of Eurosytem Monetary Operations25/07/2016QB3 2016 The New Paradigm - Analysis of Eurosytem Monetary Operations
In 2015 and the first half of 2016, the actions of global central banks continued to be one of the main drivers of financial markets and a key focus for market participants. In this article, we review the Eurosystem experience over this period outlining the main changes to the Eurosystem’s operational framework, in particular the expansion of the asset purchase programmes, and analyse the impact of these measures on Eurosystem liquidity provision and on liquidity conditions. In this context, the article also summarises developments in the euro-area money market over the review period and provides a brief summary of the debt capital market activity of both the Irish sovereign and main domestic banks.
