More Than €155 Million Transacted In The Irish Development Land Market During The First Quarter Of 2019

April 2nd, 2019 - Property consultants CBRE Ireland have today released figures for the volume and value of development land traded (both on and off-market) in the Irish market in the first quarter of 2019, which shows that 16 land sales have occurred in the year to the end of March, totalling more than €155 million between them. This compares to 37 transactions totalling more than €167 million completed in the same quarter last year - a year in which almost €1.5 billion of land sales occurred in the Irish market as a result of the completion of some strategic land sales.

Peter Garrigan, Director, Development Land & Consultancy
Activity in the first quarter of 2019 in the development land sector has been brisk with considerable off-market trading underway and a focus on closing out sales that for whatever reason didn’t conclude last year. As the issue of viability and affordability become increasingly topical, we have witnessed a notable increase in demand for residential sites along key transport corridors of late with particularly strong appetite for good sites along the M1 and M7 road corridors at present.
