Housing market boost as sales rise by 21% – 26th November 2014
Northern Ireland’s house sales volume have increased by 21% over the same quarter last year.
Houses prices also rose by 7% over the 12 months from July to September 2013.
Figures from the residential property index released yesterday by the Northern Ireland Statistics & Research Agency (NISRA) showed a steady and continuing return in the market since the pre-recession boom days.
They showed that the average house sale for quarter three of this year was £107,855.
While Belfast enjoyed a 10% increase in prices over the last year, the west and south only saw a 5% increase.
Ulster Bank chief economist Richard Ramsey said that while the number of house sales have been rising steadily over the last three years, it was still 52% lower than the peak recorded in 2006/7.
