More Than Three Quarters Of A Billion Euro Invested In Development Land In Ireland In 2017

Dublin, Jan 2nd 2018 Commercial property consultants CBRE Ireland today released statistics on the value and volume of development land sales signed in Ireland during 2017. According to the property consultants, 137 development land transactions were signed in the Irish market during 2017 totalling more than €750 million between them. Although an impressive figure and broadly mirroring volumes traded in each of the previous three years, 2017 spend was down approximately 5% compared to the value of land traded in the Irish market in 2016.

Peter Garrigan, Associate Director, Development Land
The volume of transactional activity recorded in the Irish development land market in 2017 was disappointingly low considering the dearth of supply in the residential sector of the economy in particular”. With one or two notable exceptions, most of the development land that traded in 2017 comprised relatively small lot sizes
