The price of an average three-bed semi in County Mayo is expected to rise by 10% in the next 12 months, according to a survey by Real Estate Alliance.
Three-bed semi detached homes in the county now cost an average of €190,000, which is up 12% on the December 2021 average of €170,000, the RED Average House Price Index shows.
