One of the biggest stumbling blocks for anyone hoping to buy in Ireland at the moment is the deposit.

With rents rising by the month, keeping all your basic bills covered can be a challenge so stacking away upwards of €30,000 requires some serious sacrifices. 

Daft.ie has just released its latest report on the housing market across the country and there's some very interesting info in there for anyone planning to buy or sell a property over the next few months.

One of the most intriguing is the breakdown of the average asking price in each county in Ireland, which gives a snapshot of how much you'll need in the bank before you apply for that mortgage. 

First-time buyers are now required to save 10% of the property's value as a deposit so if you're about to buy your first home, here is what you'll be shelling out...
