The average asking price for a house in Ireland is now €177,000

TWO SEPARATE REPORTS into the property market have found that house prices across Ireland are continuing to rise.

The house price report released today found that the average asking price for a house in Ireland is now €177,000 – a figure which is up 3.5 per cent from the same time last year.

It is the first time since 2007 that the average asking price for a house outside Dublin has seen a quarterly increase.

The average asking price is still down 53 per cent from the housing bubble peak. However a lack of supply is continuing to push up prices, particularly in the capital.

House prices in Dublin are now 15 per cent higher than this time last year as prices continue to rise faster than the rest of the country.

The Property Price Register suggests that there were more than 3,800 properties purchased in the last three months of 2013 in Dublin.
