Where is this example?
It is a fictional 2 bed apartment in Dublin City Center that exists only in the mind of Ken McDonald
and the gullible and/or lazy people in RTE eager to fill airtime. It does not exist.
My point, despite being a pair of old wimmin, is that rich is banging on about places where people, like himself, attach a premium to...
I'm only talking about the places that Ken McDonald used in his example. I don't know who these "people like me" are, or how we differ from "people like you". I don't attach any premium to anywhere.
You can keep casting around trying to find some exceptions where it's cheaper to buy than rent, but you're chosing to ignore completely the whole point of this thread.
The piece on the News used the AVERAGE rental cost for a 2 bed of 1200 a month.
But used a number substantially less than the average purchase price when it used 250K.
Explain to me why this is ok with you?
If someone used the same kind of dodgy maths to back up a half baked story about public sector workers, you'd be down on them like a ton of bricks.
