The Lisney Review 2012 & Outlook 2013, which I hope you will find interesting and informative.
The last 12 months have remained challenging for the property market but, in a general sense, there now appears to be greater transactional activity, particularly over the past four months. From our point of view, we have witnessed increases in both the volume and value of residential sales. During the year, we also returned to the auction market for non-distressed residential property where our success rate was in excess of 90%. The commercial markets have improved too with the value of investment sales completed during 2012 up 240% on 2011 and an increased focus on Ireland from our overseas investors. As we prepare for the next 12 months, we expect these positive trends to continue.
