Weekly Irish property market news and insights – for the industry,by the industry  

Before we get stuck into the general property news of the week, below are the local and international stories that might be of particular interest:

If you missed last week’s round-up, you can catch up here: https://propertydistrict.ie/sunday-roundup/

As always, you might let me know if I have missed out on any relevant property news by emailing  carol@propertydistrict.ie.

(Apologies in advance for any typos, it’s difficult to get good help on a Sunday. Also, I use voice to text dictation so just sound out anything that really doesn’t make sense in a strong rural accent and that should help!)

SUNDAY LISTEN – iProperty Radio

#Property Roundup

*Commercial Property Investment* 

This week on #PropertyRoundup on iProperty Radio.com is John McCartney, Director and Head of Research with BNP Paribas Real Estate. John joins us today to discuss the significant drop in commercial real estate investment, which is at its lowest level since 2013. Latest figures from BNP Paribas Real Estate showing first quarter spend came in at €161.7m, or just 15% of 10-year average.

*Also, the iProperty Radio team, in partnership with Daft.ie, will be travelling across the country in 2024, meeting estate agents and learning about rental and sales trends on the ground. If you would like to get involved in these ‘Property Roundup’ shows, email hello@ipropertyradio.com.

#Proptech Hot Seat

*Digital Approach as the fastest way to achieving net zero*

Earlier this month I was delighted to be joined in the ‘Proptech Hot Seat’ on iProperty Radio by Brian Coogan, Director of Ethos Digital, part of Ethos Engineering, to discuss a white paper he has recently published (in collaboration with The Q Network across Europe) – ‘Embracing a digital-first strategy is the quickest route to achieving Net Zero in building design’.  Brian talks about the differences between a smart building and a smart workplace, and the holy grail for turning “buildings into smartphones”.
