DONEGAL is bucking the
national property market trend with house prices 7
per cent LOWER in the final quarter of last year
compared to the previous year.
The average house price in the county is now
€115,000, a whopping 57% below peak levels.
The figures are from Daft.ie's latest report.
Spokesman, Kieran Harte said: “The report shows that
the areas surrounding Dublin are seeing their prices
stabilise before the country’s other city centres.
This would lead us to believe that the shortage of
available properties in Dublin is not only
significantly affecting house prices in the capital,
but starting to impact the traditional commuter
The property website said the story of 2013 was
"lack of supply in sales, rental and shared
accommodation in the capital".
"This lack of accommodation across all sectors has
had a major influence in Dublin’s asking prices
returning to 2007 percentage increases. The only
solution is to begin planning and building new
accommodation in the capital which will cater for
the demand created by the creation of jobs there,"
added Mr Harte.
