House prices expected to rise almost 4% in 2020

The cost of houses outside Dublin are expected to rise at twice the rate of those in the capital this year.

Property prices across the country are expected to increase by 3.8% this year.

That is more than double the rate in Dublin, according to the 2020 Sunday Times National Property Price Guide, released today.

The most expensive homes cost €450,000 in areas like Greystones, County Wicklow, or €330,000 in Blackrock in County Cork.

Joint Editor of the National Property Price Guide Linda Daly, revealed which counties have the the most affordable homes.

Ms Daly said: "When you compare them to the lower priced areas and there is a huge differentiation, so Leitrim, Roscommon, Longford and Sligo would have the cheapest homes.

"You can get a three-bedroom, semi-detached house for as little as €90,000 to €100,000 in Sligo, in Mohill in Leitrim about €100,000, in Edgeworthstown in Longford about €110,000 for a three-bedroom semi."
