According to the latest survey from the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, the readings for September were the strongest since July 2007.
RICS said 60% of respondents saw prices rise in the past three months while no respondents reported prices having fallen, as the local housing market continues to "gain momentum".
Tom McClelland from the group explained: "On the whole, the summer was a positive one for the Northern Ireland housing market, and that trend continued into September.
"The recovery from the price collapse that occurred post summer 2007 will be a long and slow one. There will also be bumps along the way. However, there is growing evidence to suggest that it is at least properly underway."
The report follows positive readings in June, July and August, making it the first time there have been four months in a row with a price balance above zero since the property price peak.
Figures for NI this month were in line with the rest of the UK, where all regions reported positive prices - with London (92%) and the South East (72%) leading the way.
