If all the vacant houses were either put up for sale or rent there wouldn’t be such a demand for houses, but that wouldn’t be in the interest of the banks who want the house prices as high as possible so they can give out huge mortgages and then take the houses back when the payments cant be met, they are giving people over 4 times the joint salary which was what got the country in shit not too long ago. How quickly people forget. Between Nama and the banks they are holding onto houses to increase demand.
