The week in the property market in 3 graphics

The statistical breakdown you should look at if you’re thinking of stepping onto the property ladder.

EACH WEEK WE give you the inside scoop about what’s been happening in the property market.

We’ve been working with the reams of data from property website Daft.ie to come up with some useful facts and figures you should bear in mind if thinking of throwing your lot in with other home hunters.

This week we take a look at some of the trends around the country.

Wexford on the up

The south-eastern county has become more in vogue with the up turn in the housing market. It is the county that has sold the fifth most properties across Ireland so far this year. This puts it ahead of the traditionally more popular counties Limerick, Sligo and Wicklow.

Spending big in Monaghan

The reach the top of the property ladder in Monaghan – your pockets don’t need to be as deep as you might think. The most expensive property sold in the county so far in 2014 has gone for €567,000. Not bad considering you could expect to pay out more than €600,000 for this 2-bedroom house in Dublin.
