"More than 1-percent quarterly growth in the average prices of houses and flats in the third quarter of 2012 represents a deceleration in the year-on-year decline by 1.7 percentage points," announced NBS as quoted by the TASR newswire. An increase in average prices during the third quarter was recorded in all types of flats. Prices for larger flats rose in the most noticeable way, with the prices of three-bedroom flats seeing the most significant rise (by 3.2 percent/€38 when compared to the second quarter). These were still €16 cheaper on a year-on-year basis, however.

The prices of houses in the July-September period of 2012 accelerated when compared to the previous quarter.
