A second and probably even more common prediction is that it will facilitate flight from the cities. Figures published by Zillow last month, covering the US, don’t seem to support that idea there – with urban and suburban prices rising month-on-month while rural prices fall. In Ireland, there is similarly no support yet for the prediction that more rural or larger properties have seen their relative price increase since the start of the year" External link

Ronan Lyons writes : "If the country needs urban apartments and is getting mostly rural one-offs, then the extra supply will be of far less benefit than if urban apartments were built," "And that, at risk of simplification, is what is happening. Comparing the country's housing stock with its people, the country does not need any more three- and four-bedroom family homes. What it needs instead is homes for one- and two-person households, especially in urban areas - ie, apartments" External link

Ronan Lyons added : "This trend of greater availability has started to spread, too. In Leinster (outside Dublin), availability is up from 5,000 a year ago to 6,000 today. Elsewhere in the country, the picture is more about stabilisation after many years of dwindling stock. This is a world away from the rental sector, where availability is at record and continues to worsen," External link

That has given way in the sales market to one of steadily improving supply, relieving the upward pressure on prices," External link

A second and probably even more common prediction is that it will facilitate flight from the cities. Figures published by Zillow last month, covering the US, don’t seem to support that idea there – with urban and suburban prices rising month-on-month while rural prices fall.
