Longford housing market continues to show upward trend

Longford housing market continues to show upward trend

Auction specialists The Leinster Property Auction, note house prices are expected to rise by 4.5% nationwide over the next 12 months. 

A recent report by the Central Bank shows that despite some recent difficulties in price trends, notably in more urban areas, house prices are set to continue on a steady but moderate upward trend.

Patrick Folan of The Leinster Property Auction said, “The key focus within the Irish property market in the coming months should be what steps the government will take to increase development and assist mortgage buyers to struggling to secure finance with the new lending rules. We expect that these pressing issue will be addressed in the October budget.”
