Property Prices Rise By 5% In 12 Months Up To November

Prices are at their highest in the three county towns.

Residential property prices in the midlands have risen by almost 5% in the year to November.

That's in contrast to a 1.5% increase nationwide.

The cost of buying a home in the midlands jumped by 4.5% between November of 2018 and November of 2019.

It was most expensive in Laois, where the average figure rose from €140,000 to €178,000.

There was an almost €70,000 increase in Offaly, with house prices averaging at €170,000 there.

While prices were lowest in neighbouring Westmeath, jumping from €151,000 to €165,000 in the 12 month period.

And it's no surprise the most costly residential properties were found in the three county towns of Portlaoise, Tullamore and Mullingar.
