I think they get far too muck flak, though I envy their pensions.House buying status:
Dodged a bullet not buying with first proper job after college like everyone was telling me to; I know a fair few people who did. Been renting for last decade and have decent savings as a consequence; now looking to buy as a first time buyer. Being very fussy, however; not in a huge rush due to current flat/falling prices, and if I buy I want it to be for a long time; I still ultimately believe prices will fall a lot in the future.
I nearly bought in 2013 when my then-landlord wanted the place back for use as a short-term let, but was too busy at work to get around to it and just rented a new place, which I now regret greatly AAM status

: We have our problems, but ultimately I prefer it to any other Anglophone country, and that's all I speak properly, so...Where would I buy
: Dublin 4, 6, or bits of 8, maybe bits of 2. Ideally walkable to work in city center, with good public transport. 2 bed apartment or small house. Rented mostly in D8.
