That's according to a study from property agents DNG.
A new survey shows house values have soared over the past 12 months.
The study from property agents DNG says the estimated value of a home is up 11 per cent year on year.
This is the highest level of inflation the company has measured since 2017.

DNG director of research Paul Murgatroyd says values have increased over the last few months.
