If you're looking to buy a home or apartment in Western Queens, you'll have to pay up.

The Real Estate Board of New York’s Residential Sales Report revealed average home prices are up more than 12 percent in Sunnyside and Woodside.

Sales of condos, coops and homes each increased by double digits in the past year.

Some real estate professionals believe it is due to the popularity of water front neighborhoods in the borough.

"I call it the Long Island City affect, with the boom that is happening in Long Island City, people are definitely migrating or getting prices out of Long Island City and discovering, I guess somewhat newer neighborhoods for them in Queens and that is lifting up the prices," said Eric Benaim, the CEO of Modern Spaces.

According to REBNY the number of home sales in Queens is also up 17 percent from last year.
