House prices in Louth continue to rise

House prices in Louth continue to rise according to the the latest Daft.ie House Price Report

The average house price in Longford is now €137,000, 63% above its lowest point.

That's according to the latest House Price Report released by property website, daft.ie.

Housing prices in Longford rose by 6.5% during 2018 and nationally, prices rose by 5.5%, or by €1,000 per month.

Longford, alongside, Leitrim, Roscommon and Sligo, remains one of the least expensive counties in the country to purchase a home.

The annual national increase of 5.5% (€241,000 was the average asking price for Q4 2017) or just over €1,000 a month, was significantly smaller than increases of between 8% and 9% seen in 2015, 2016 and 2017 and marks the lowest year-end inflation rate since prices bottomed out in 2013.

The number of properties available to buy on the market nationwide also rose by 10% during 2018.
