Prices for one- and two-bedroom apartments and two-bedroom townhouses experienced some marginal downward movement over the last four months.

However, other property types experienced proportionally larger price shifts. Bigger properties were the hardest hit, with five-bedroom detached homes falling by 17pc to €458,800 for new units, and by 13pc to €442,500 for secondhand units, since April.

Most agents surveyed recorded an increase in sales activity since last April and an average of between six to 12 weeks to sell a property.

A Greystones agent reported 14 sales within the last 12 weeks, with an unusually busy August as more buyers recognised the market was beginning to bottom out. While first-timers predominate, homeowners are also beginning to move. One agent pointed to a pent-up demand from sellers who wish to buy again.

Many respondents pointed to an oversupply of apartments and large houses in Bray, but others noted a lack of good family houses.
