Yes of course it's positive Stephen! That's why it's frustrating when the considerable incentives garnered in recent times, including the DOE's guidelines for waiving development levies on a national basis, are misrepresented, while a frivolous, 'buyer beware' red herring upsets the entire apple cart.

Likewise, if the correct specialists were interviewed, the features of period properties - not least the pair on St. Stephen's Green - would be highlighted as unique and distinguished selling points, rather than as yet more red tape to struggle through.

We have such an immature real estate industry in this country. They just don't get it - the agents, the developers or the commentators. Is it any wonder the poor householder is at sea. All these guys are so behind the curve it's embarrassing at this stage.

Some good news items here:

Parnell Square Cultural Quarter gets a design team of Grafton Architects and Shaffrey Associates. A planning application is expected for next summer...although awarding the design contract has been over a year delayed. http://dublincity.ie/design-team-select ... evelopment

Mountjoy Square now has the basis of a plan to redesign its gardens and restore the perimeter of one of Dublin's most neglected Georgian Squares. A mooted €4.6m price tag. http://www.irishexaminer.com/breakingne ... 36712.html
