The author of the report, Conall MacCoille, Chief Economist at Davy, explained that prediction.

“There are a number of reasons why house prices are rising so strongly; these include the lack of supply, the economic recovery and the fact household incomes are now rising by 2-3% per annum.

However the key factor driving house prices higher has been the mortgage market. The average loan drawn down by first time buyers in the last quarter was up 9.4% in the year to €200,000 from €183,000 in mid 2016.
