Pint Index Vs Average Dublin House Prices

Absolutely,To quote Liz at the time…there never has been a better time to buy a round :smiley:

That’s a long time to hold off the guinness… Not sure, I’ll manage it… :mrgreen:

Pure genius!

I’m bloody sure the last time I bought someone a pint it was 5.60.

I must be drinking in the wrong places.

swiff swoo, what brings you down to talk to us common folks? :mrgreen:

Awesome :smiley:

A Property Guru ( :angry: ) on Boards.ie has asked for the source of the above figures.

Care to share or perhaps provide him with the details on this or either Thread?.

The Boards one is here:

I remember paying 2.50 odd in the late Nineties, but in punts obviously. Was this taken into account?

Update this for 2009 - and tweaked the numbers (as I couldn’t find the source for the original house figures) using:

Because the number go back to 1983, did an extended version:

Looks like the price of a pint ‘never goes down’. Unlike house prices.

Can’t really buy 100,000 pints as an investment though…

Wine though would be a good investment choice.

So a return to equilibrium suggests we can expect another 50% off current asking prices.

That tallies with my view. Only question is how long will it take?

Or the price of a pint goes up to €8.50… Whichever comes first… :nin

I`m fairly sure there are places in this town where you would be charged not too far off 8.50.

It might not appear very scientific, but just follow the line down until it reaches the long term (real) trend and see what date you hit. I make it sometime in early 2013.
