Dublin remains the second best city in Europe for real estate investment and development, according to a new report.
Home ownership rates here have plunged since the crash, and strict new mortgage rules planned by the Central Bank could further hit prospective first-time buyers this year, according to a major global report from Fitch.
A group of private investors have set what is believed to be a new benchmark for an investment involving a bank branch by paying €6.15 million for a Bank of Ireland premises at Tallaght, Dublin 24. The selling price is €1,650,000 above the guide and will give the new owners a return of 5.55 per cent – probably the lowest yield since AIB and Bank of Ireland off-loaded a large number of bank branches during the boom.
Dublin’s Georgian housing market is continuing to attract new owners keen to avail of the much reduced values. Joint agents Colliers International and Mervyn Feely & Associates have secured €2.45 million – €800,000 above the guide – for 43 Fitzwilliam Square.

About O'Dwyer

O’Dwyer is a leading Chartered Property and Facility Management firm founded in 1988 by Siobhan O’Dwyer. The firm offers a broad range of specialist advisory management and transactional services.

 

O’Dwyer has its genesis in residential property management and is now recognised as the preeminent firm in Ireland in this field. However, over time it has evolved to provide a comprehensive service offering covering, not only residential, but all the property sectors.

 

O’Dwyer employs over 85 specialists, encompassing, Property Surveyors, Valuers, Asset Managers, Facility Managers, Building and M&E, Engineers, Letting Specialists, QFA’s and Accountants who together provide a multi-disciplinary and bespoke service offering to the property industry.

 

The financial crisis of 2008-2012 not only gave rise to a high level of distressed property but it also redrew the property ownership landscape in Ireland. Financial institutions, pension funds and professional landlords now control an increasing share of the national portfolio.  O’Dwyer rose to the challenges and to the shift of ownership and tailored its service offering to meet the requirements of this more sophisticated client base.  This earned O’Dwyer its position as special advisor to various banks including NAMA and a large and distinguished institutional clientele, including QIAIF’s and some of the largest global property firms.

 

O’Dwyer can provide a one stop shop to investors encompassing investment management, facility services, turnaround and transactional services. These services can also be unbundled to provide a bespoke offering in specific client situations.

 

The firm’s competitive advantages are its experienced team of mixed professionals, a nationwide platform and a unifying management philosophy.

This philosophy is complemented by a set of core business principles that articulate O’Dwyer’s commitment to excellence commonality of interests with clients, a collaborative and cooperative culture, and a disciplined, opportunistic approach to the expansion of offerings.
