Will house prices rise in 2007? A comparative assessment of house prices in London and Dublin

  • Peter Richmond
Part of the New Economic Windows book series (NEW)


House prices are of concern to many people and in recent years they seem to have gone through one of their periodic up turns. In a previous paper [4] we offered empirical evidence suggesting that prices in both the UK and Dublin had peaked and suggested prices computed relative to inflation would fall over the next few years. Here we assess progress in the light of further data now available.
