Mark Keenan: The only problem now is finding a mortgage
POSITIVE sentiment is one of the most vital ingredients necessary for a property market revival -- which is why Ireland's estate agents will be optimistic after the results of the Millward Brown survey which demonstrates that 78pc of the populace now believe it's a good time to buy a house.
Most experts are now united in believing that Ireland's massive property crash will begin to end this year or early next year. By this they don't mean that prices will start soaring again, but that they will stop falling and may even rise very slightly -- as some reports have already shown.
Price levelling will spread outward across the country from Dublin, in the same way the recent crash started in the capital and moved outward in waves during 2007 and 2008.
