b There is a break in the series in the first quarter of 2015 due to redefinition of the model variables.

  1. Interesting to see what the 2015 model variable redefinition involved?

    Good share in the sense it perfectly plots the the volatile nature of real-estate on the island. I hope the dodgy brokers who sold this mess to ordinary people as “investable” are looking at this post. It’s nothing of the sort.

    If this was any other investment portfolio – anyone with an ounce of common sense would run a mile!

    As prices (and the ‘fortunes’ of anyone unlucky enough to be embroiled in it) continue to lurch all over the place – it would be good to correlate actual events (e.g ‘cash for passports’) to these changes – and try and come up with something that could potentially pass muster as a means of navigating oneself out of this mess and back into the black.
