We are becoming a nation of renters, but at what cost?

Whatever about annual increases averaging almost 9pc, it’s the sheer amount of money required to rent a home that perhaps demonstrates the appalling mess the rental market is in.
A modest two-bed apartment averages almost €960 per month, but ranges in price from €335 to €2,150.
A three-bed semi-d is €855, but average rents well in excess of €1,000 are not uncommon.
