The average asking price for a house in Ireland has risen by 14% over the past year and now stands at €195,000.
A new report by Daft.ie, shows the largest increases were in Dublin where the average asking price is now 25% higher than this time last year.
However, there have also been significant increases recorded in Louth (14%), Meath (15%), Kildare (19%), Wicklow (20%), Cork (11%) and Galway (13%).
Limerick city has seen asking prices fall by 4% during the past year.
Economist and Author of the report Ronan Lyons says a shortage of houses is the main reason why prices are continuing to increase.
