Yeah it's been reported here repeatedly.
This thread is great, kudos to the threadstarter.

To remind us of FG's view:

“There is no system more broken than the system of housing in this country. The system is completely broken and needs to be re-built.”

It's widely accepted that vulture funds are more likely to do a deal?

Or are you in the camp that think people who can't pay their loans should keep the asset secured thereon?

It's a faux pas for a government minister to come out and welcome 'vulture funds', regardless.

That's not a faux pas. For a starters he didn't "welcome" them, I'm curious as to why you spin it this way.

Honest but impolitic for the shreiky Fianna Fáil types maybe. Or maybe honest and politic for those of us who are shit sick of the "where's my NAMA" nonsense.

'Austin Hughes of KBC Bank said supply was increasing and demand growth may have peaked.'

If this VI clown is saying that (just as interest rates are expected to rise) ...things could get interesting.

Leo Varadkar 2/8/2018:

Quote:
Asked whether there is now the prospect of a property or land bubble, Mr Varadkar said:

On land bubble, I don’t. But I do think there is a lot of land that isn’t being made available for development quickly enough.

"That is why we brought in the derelict site levy, for example, and the vacant site tax to make sure there is more land available and is also why we are setting up the land development agency which will have CPO powers to acquire land and develop it.
“But I haven’t seen convincing evidence of a land bubble at this stage. It’s something obviously we have to look out for.”


Keep 'em peeled

Minster for Housing apologises
I had the privilege recently of meeting with a young mother with a young child who were homeless. She told me her own personal story through tears because she felt ashamed about the situation she was in and
I apologised to her because she had to spend three weeks in a hotel. She should never have been in that hotel. We were talking in the hub that she is now in and she was finding that difficult but I was able to tell her that she would be in a home soon.
