House Rebuilding Costs Up for 2012

According to the latest figures from  the Society of Chartered Surveyors Ireland  - out the cost of rebuilding a home in Ireland  has increased by 1.5 per cenin the past year
Rebuild costs may be more than a new build because of extra work in site slearance etc.
The house rebuild guide shows big price variations. For example, the rebuild cost of a Dublin three-bedroom semi increased by 0.52 per cent, while, for the same type of house in Waterford, the increase was almost 2 per cent. The cost rise is apparently down to a tightening of building regulations.

But, even taking this year’s rise into account, overall rebuilding costs are down 24 per cent from 2008.
