3 COMMENTARY BPFI HOUSING MARKET MONITOR Q1/2016 Housing activity is increasing but supply constraints remain Supply of new homes in Ireland still remains low, despite a year-on-year increase of about 20% in completions in the first quarter of 2016 compared to the same period in If the same trend were to continue for the rest of the year, it is likely that completions would be around the 15,000 mark for 2016 which would still be well below the estimated demand of 25,000 units. Around 39% of all units completed in the first quarter of 2016 were individual houses or one-off units. Of the total units completed in the first quarter of 2016, nearly one third of all completions were in the Dublin area where the shortage of housing supply is most acute; this is despite an approximate 50% increase in completions in the period compared with first quarter of Housing commencements also showed a significant increase in the first quarter of 2016 compared to the same period in Some 2,100 commencements were recorded in the period, representing a 57% increase in activity compared to the same period in There was a strong increase in activity across the country, with commencements in Dublin, Munster and the rest of Leinster up year-on-year by 50%, 67% and 80%, respectively. If the same trend were to continue for the rest of 2016, and if we assume the same ratio of commencements to completions with a one year lag, there should be around 20,000 units completed in This number should be acknowledged in the context of one-off units accounting for between 35% to 40% of all completions in 2014 and Chart 1 - Housing Supply Activity (Units) 25,000 20,000 15,000 10,000 5, Commencements Completions Permissions Source: DoECLG In addition to commencements data, planning permissions are a good indicator of potential future housing supply. In 2015 planning permissions were granted for 13,595 residential units. This compares to 7,624 and 7,861 units that received planning permission in 2013 and 2014, respectively. More encouragingly still, only around 25% of these permissions were for one-off units compared with around 40% in 2013 and 2014 and around 52% back in Dublin and Dublin commuter areas (Louth, Meath, Kildare and Wicklow) accounted for just over 60% of

4 COMMENTARY BPFI HOUSING MARKET MONITOR Q1/2016 planning permissions granted in 2015 compared with around 50% in 2013 and Shortage of supply of new housing units has been putting significant pressure both on the availability and the price of rental accommodation since According to the latest daft.ie Rental Report, there were just 3,082 properties on the market nationwide at the start of May, the lowest on record, compared to a peak of nearly 24,000 in mid-2009 and over 7,200 two years ago. The same report shows that annual inflation in rents in Dublin remained between 8% and 9% while outside Dublin the rate of inflation was just below 10%. This represents an annualised rate of rental inflation of around 9.6% since the second quarter of While cash has always played some part in the market over time, cash sales have become a significant feature of housing market activity in Ireland over the past few years. Using loanlevel data and Property Services Regulatory Authority data, BPFI s own analysis of transactions shows that, as of Q1 2016, cash purchases accounted for 47% of all transactions. That compares with an estimated 35% in the UK, according to the Council for Mortgage Lenders. However there are significant regional variations with cash sales accounting for a high of 75% of all transactions in county Leitrim and a low of around 29% in county Kildare. We estimate that in Dublin cash sales accounted for around 37% of all transactions in the first quarter of 2016 compared to around 40% in Q Chart 2 - Cash Sales as % of Residential Property Sales 70% 60% 50% 40% 30% 20% 10% Kildare Meath Dublin Wicklow Cork Monaghan Laois Offaly Louth Sligo Kilkenny Source: BPFI based on BPFI and Property Services Regulatory Authority data Ali Uğur, Economist and Head of Tax & Accounting, Banking & Payments Federation Ireland Galway Tipperary Limerick Westmeath Carlow Kerry Clare Waterford Mayo Cavan Roscommon Wexford Donegal Longford Leitrim National

11 PROPERTY TRANSACTIONS & MORTGAGES 5, Property Transactions 5,000 In the first quarter of 2016, the number of property transactions in Ireland was just over 9,400, This represents a fall of 11% compared to the same three months of 2015 and is the second quarter in a row of falling transactions in year-on-year terms. This follows sixteen straight quarters of rising transaction levels, from a low of 3,500 in early 2011 to a high of nearly 16,000 in late The fall was greatest, proportionately, in Connacht- Ulster (17%) and in Leinster (13.9%). Dublin saw a 9.1% fall in transaction volumes, while Munster saw a 7.9% fall. 4,500 4,000 3,500 3,000 2,500 2,000 1,500 1, Dublin Leinster Munster Connacht - Ulster Source: RPPR * Note: These numbers are based on transactions registered with the Residential Property Price Register by mid-may 2016 and are subject to revision.

12 PROPERTY TRANSACTIONS & MORTGAGES 9, Source: BPFI Mortgage Approvals 8,000 Mortgage approvals offer an early indicator of credit conditions in the mortgage market. The first quarter of 2016 saw just over 6,000 mortgages approved, based on a threemonth moving average, a 14% fall compared to the same period in The vast majority (over 5,200) of the approvals relate to house purchases, rather than refinancing or equity release. 7,000 6,000 5,000 4,000 Mortgage Drawdowns Given the nature of the housing market, the volume of mortgage drawdowns generally reflects transaction levels and again offers an indicator of credit conditions. Just under 5,450 mortgages were drawn down between January and March, of which nearly 4,700 related to property purchase. This represents a decline of 3% on the same period in 2015 and the first time since late 2013 that drawdowns fell in year-on-year terms. Nonetheless, the figure for Q marks the second highest return for the first three months of the year for the six years in the series. 3,000 2,000 1,000 Q1 Q2 Q3 Q4 Q1 Q2 Q3 Q4 Approvals Drawdowns
