DaftDrop is the non-profit Irish property price tracker, bringing you an unbiased and impartial view of the Irish property market, with the easiest & fastest price search engine online.
What does DaftDrop do?
DaftDrop is tracking over 300,000 houses that were, or still are, for sale in Ireland. DaftDrop provides an easy way to determine a property's market history, as well as the means to gain an insight into the overall property market within Ireland, or a specific area.
Why use this?
As a buyer, one of the main things you're interested in are price changes, right? Right. Knowing a property's history gives you, the buyer, a much better idea of the mindset of a seller, which is very valuable knowledge before entering negotiations.
For example, if a seller has dropped their prices several times in the last few months, you can be sure they're eager to sell. On the other hand, if a house has been on the market for years without much activity, it's less likely that the seller is clued in to the current market and their expectations may be unrealistic.

Price Drops »
Estate Agents often:
- Modify the ad's 'entered' date to make a property seem like it's fresh on the market
- Or, re-create a whole knew ad, having the same effect
- Increase price above actual expectation, just so an initial offer will be high
- Change a price to Price On Application, because of lack of interest in an overpriced property

<b>Q: We put a deposit down on a house 18 months ago but it turns out the vendor is insolvent and we cannot get any information from the auctioneer. We were told the sale would close last Christmas, then it was May. Meantime we are still renting with our family on hold. Papers are moving from solicitors to PIPs (the house is with AIB). What is the hold up and is there anything we can do? Our deposit is still with the auctioneer. </b>
