The national survey concentrates on actual sale prices giving an up to date picture of the property market.

It shows a larger increase in Killarney where prices have risen by €10,000 to €255,000 in the same 3 months, while Eddie Barrett of REA Norths in Tralee has reported prices static at €135,000.

Mr Barrett said the supply of receivership properties has dropped away and the private vendor is almost non-existent with the exception of executor sales.
