Offaly Sees Highest Rise In Median House Prices In Leinster Last Year

Laois remains the most affordable county to buy property in the region. 

Median house prices in the midlands have increased by between 3% and 14% in the last 12 months. 

Figures from the latest myhome.ie property survey show the highest change in Leinster comes in Offaly. 

The median price is defined as a house which is more expensive than exactly half of the other available houses. 

That figure currently stands at €188,000 in Offaly, up almost 14% in the last 12 months. 

That's the largest increase in Leinster ahead of Kilkenny, Louth and Wicklow.

A more modest increase of 5.56% in Westmeath sees their median cost remain above their near neighbours at €189,950. 

Laois remains the most affordable county to buy property in the region. 

The O'Moore County had the second smallest percentage increase in Ireland last year at 3.11%, ranking only behind County Kerry. 

It leaves the median house price at €175,000. 

Wicklow is the most expensive county to buy in according to these figures, with Longford the cheapeast at €110,000.
