12 Mar Eircode Q4 2017 Housing Supply Update
We have analysed the Eircode Address Database (Quarter 4 2017) to establish the increase in total residential units in Ireland in 2017. The figures are affected by new construction but also by the change of building use, e.g. a building changing from a number of flats to a single residence or vice versa.
To arrive at our figure we calculated the increase in residential addresses at the end of 2017 compared to the end of 2016, excluding all properties marked as under construction.
There was an increase of 4,372 residential addresses from October to December. The full year increase in residential units for 2017 was 16,047, with a further 8,158 under construction. This compares with figures of 14,889 and 5,387 for 2016, an increase of 7.8% in new residential units with a 51% increase in units under construction. The breakdown by County is given in the table below:
|COUNTY||Increase in 2017||% Change||UC end of 2017||% Change|
There was an increase in Dublin of 6,094 properties compared to 2,826 in 2016, a 115% increase year on year.
Caveats apply with this data which may be affected by An Post GeoDirectory update schedules.
