An increase in demand for homes was seen also in Leinster up 26%

Demand for homes in Kildare increased by 19%, in comparison to last year.

According to property website, Daft.ie nationwide demand for homes is up by 17% year on year.

Demand for New Homes specifically is up 114% nationally when comparing May 2023 to the same period in 2022.

While demand in Dublin is up 34%, double the growth in demand seen nationally.

The demand for New Homes in Dublin has also increased by a whopping 99%.

Eighteen of the twenty-six counties examined across the country by Daft.ie have seen an increase in demand compared to the same time last year.

Similar to the growth seen in demand for homes in Dublin, demand in Meath is up 29%.

Offaly and Limerick both saw a demand increase of 26%, while housing demand in Louth is 25% higher than a year ago. 

Homes with a listed price of between €400k - €600k saw the largest rise in demand of 38%, according to Daft.ie.

New Homes within the price bracket of €400k - €500k saw a staggering surge in demand of 1783%, it can be assumed this price point has seen the largest increase due to the help-to-buy scheme qualifying criteria whereby the purchase value of the property must be €500k or less, it said.

While demand for homes between €200k - €400k has increased 24% (186% for New Homes), interestingly homes listed between €600k - €800k have also seen a large growth of 20% (251% for New Homes) compared to this time last year.

Homes over €800k have also seen an increase in demand from buyers but at a much smaller amount of 2%, while New Homes over €800k have seen a rise of 160% year on year, according to figures from Daft.ie.

Increases in demand for homes was seen also in Leinster (up 26%), Connacht-Ulster (up 15%) and Munster (up 6%).

When we compare these demand increases with the demand for New Homes specifically within these provinces we can see Connacht-Ulster saw the largest demand growth for New Homes with 110%, followed by Leinster at 75% and Munster at 69% hike in demand for New Homes.
