House Prices fall in Causeway Coast & Glens

2 Mins read

Land & Property Services assisted by the Northern Ireland Statistics & Research Agency today released the House Price Index report for Quarter 2 2016.

The Index measures change in the price of residential property sold in Northern Ireland. The Index uses stamp duty information on residential property sales recorded by Her Majesty’s Revenue & Customs.

The NI House Price Index series is used as the NI component of the single official UK HPI and the statistics are comparable with other UK regions.

Results for the most recent quarter (April to June 2016), which are provisional show that:

  • Between Q1 (January – March) 2016 and Q2 (April – June) 2016 the house price index increased by 3.8%;
  • Between Q2 2015 and Q2 2016 the house price index increased by 7.8%;
  • 4,075 residential properties sold during Q2 2016;
  • The house price index is now 11.1% higher than Q1 2015 (the new reference period); and
  • All district council areas showed an increase over the quarter, except for Mid Ulster, Fermanagh and Omagh and Causeway Coast and Glens, where the index decreased.

From 1 April 2015, 11 new councils took over from the previous 26 under a program of reform.
