  • FTBs and mover-purchasers together made up more than 84% of the market in value terms.

Some Existing Initiatives to lift Property Market

Budget 2012

Priority Areas of Focus

NAMA 80:20 Deferred Payment Initiative

  • Initiative launched in May 2012. In combination with Budget measures, NAMA believe initiative can increase activity in the market.

  • Aim is to protect homebuyers from potential future falls in property prices

  • Limited to 750 houses in total.

  • Pilot phase of 115 properties located in residential developments in Dublin, Meath and Cork.

  • Pilot scheme will be subject to an evaluation as to its outcome and NAMA may in future extend the Initiative to additional residential units..

  • Stamp duty arrangements for residential property continue to apply with 1% on transactions up to and including €1 million, and 2% thereafter.

  • For those who wish to purchase a home:

    • FTBs will get mortgage interest relief at a rate of 25%

    • Non-FTBs will benefit from relief at 15%

Influencing factors

  • Interest rates amongst lowest in Europe

  • Strong favourable demographics

  • Unemployment still high

  • Mortgage approvals given but not all translating to transactions

  • Risk – consumer wary of further fall in house prices
