The final figures for 2015 are in from the National Institute of Statistics (INE), showing house prices up by 4.2% last year.
The house price index published by the INE is one of the indices included in the SPI House Price Index Tracker (see chart above), and the last one to come in for 2015 (highlighted in yellow).
It supports a picture of house prices back in positive territory, but not showing much sign of taking off.
The price of new homes rose by 5.8% last year, and resales by 4%, all as a national average.
