Buyers need to earn at least €128,000 to afford a new-build home in Dublin

he cost of building a typical family home has shot up in the last three years.

It now costs so much to build a standard three-bed semi-detached house in the Dublin region that buyers need a combined salary of at least €128,000 to afford it.

Surveyors have calculated that it costs €461,000 to deliver a three-bed semi in Dublin. This is up by €90,000 in the last three years, according to new research from the Society of Chartered Surveyors Ireland (SCSI).

It means the cost of construction has soared by 24pc.

The research shows construction inflation is biting hard for builders, due to higher material costs, rising energy prices and fuel costs.

The report, “The Real Costs of New Housing Delivery”, puts the cost of building a similar house nationally at €397,000.
