Dublin has recorded house prices at double the national average.
Property prices nationally are set to rise to boom-time levels by the end of 2017.
That's according to the head of the Institute of Professional Auctioneers and Valuers.
Published in today's Sunday Independent, figures show that an average family home in the capital is now nearly €518,000.
This compares to the figure of the national average three-bed which comes in at €253,466.
The highest priced three and four bed semis were recorded in Dublin 4, priced at €975,000 and €1.3 million respectively.
And if you're looking for a two bed, the most expensive area is Dublin 2 where it will set you back around €380,000.
High prices in Dublin have had a knock on effect for commuter counties, with a three-bed semi in Wicklow setting you back €275,000, in Meath costing €239,000 and in Kildare €235,000.
The best value for money was found in Longford, where a three bed home costs just €90,000.
