More than 280 homes are being bought every month by property funds as cash-rich investors continue to snap up much-needed homes.
An analysis of the Property Price Register shows that 777 houses and apartments were sold in the first 10 weeks of this year for almost €140m as families struggle to buy or rent a property.
The data, analysed by the Independent.ie data science team, shows there has been a continuous rise in purchases by investors since 2010.
