The latest details suggested that while there are positive signs, the levels of growth here will still trail behind the rest of the UK.
It comes as the region recovers from a steeper dip since 2007.
Tom McClelland of RICS said: "Northern Ireland house prices are now 54% below their peak, and whilst Northern Ireland prices rose above the UK average in mid-2007, they are now around half the UK average, according to DCLG figures.
"Instances of negative equity have also continued to increase in Northern Ireland whilst falling in the rest of the UK.
"We expect these improvements to continue into 2014, with prices and transactions continuing to edge higher from their current low levels as confidence and demand increase."
