The asking price for houses in Co Wexford continues to tumble downwards, according to the latest reports from the country's leading property websites.
The reports on the third quarter of 2011 from Daft. ie and MyHome.ie both estimate that property prices in Wexford fell by over 5 per cent between June and September.
Daft. ie said that the asking price for the average Wexford home on its website fell by 5.1 per cent to €162,513 over the course of the three months.
However, the fall from the peak of the property boom over four years ago is now 50.8 per cent in Wexford, the report says, with the past 12 months accounting for 18.4 per cent of that reduction.
According to Daft.ie, the average asking prices for homes in the Model County are now as follows: one bed – €93,000; two bed – €99,000; three bed – €143,000; four bed – €200,000; five bed – €260,000.

A convicted paedophile who previously went on the run and ended up being caught in Wicklow has been missing for over two months now.
40-year-old Paul Hunter Redpath, originally from Stranraer, Dumfries and Galloway in Scotland, was last seen in Aberdeen on July 19.
Scottish Police are still investigating an alleged sighting of Redpath in Belfast.
He failed to comply with registration requirements and is now being treated as a ' wanted person.'
Grampian Police say Redpath is likely to associate with street drinkers and is likely to approach members of the public, charitable and religious orders asking for money.
Grampian Police Detective Chief Inspector Malcolm Macleod says 'we are grateful to the members of the public who have taken the time to contact us in relation to Paul Redpath but as yet we have not been able to trace him. We issue this fresh appeal to the public to assist us further in tracing him.'
