Property values in Northern Ireland edged up by less than one percentage point to an average of £129,385 during the last quarter of 2016, Nationwide Building Society said.

The 0.7 per cent rise was the second lowest in the UK behind the north of England, where prices were effectively flat (up 0.1 per cent) this year.

That was a much more subdued performance in Northern Ireland than in the previous quarter, when prices were up 2.4 per cent against the year before.

And experts are warning that "real tests" will come in the housing market early in the New Year amid uncertainty over unemployment, inflation and the wider economy post-Brexit.

In the UK as a whole, property prices increased by 4.5 per cent in 2016 as the average price stood at £205,898 in December (a 0.8 per cent month-on-month increase), according to Nationwide.
