The average house price in Cymru has risen by 12.2% in a year, according to figures released by the online real estate portal Rightmove.


The average asking price rose by 2.6% in April to £220,774.


The price increase has been attributed to a shortage of houses on the market at a time when buyers are searching for more spacious properties in more rural locations as a result of the pandemic.


In February 2020, the Principality building society revealed that the average house price in Cymru had exceeded £200k for the first time.
