In the latest RICS and Ulster Bank Residential Market Survey, RICS Spokesman, Samuel Dickey said:

“Whilst, it appears that there continues to be variation in the market here across property types and in different locations, overall the data is more positive in Northern Ireland than in other parts of the UK. This is certainly the case regarding the price index. Evidence of demand levels being above supply levels in some areas of Northern Ireland is clearly a factor in this.”
