What does DaftDrop IE do?
DaftDrop IE is tracking around 500,000 residential and commercial properties that were, or still are, for sale across Ireland. DaftDrop IE provides an easy way to determine the market history of a property or area, and to gain insights into the overall property market throughout the Emerald Isle
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.
DaftDrop IE can:
- Show price drops/increases, that are otherwise forgotton
- Allows lightning fast and flexible sorting and searching
- Show the real time on market
- Show similar properties
- Detect previous listings of the same property
- Show unbiased, up-to-date trends via graphing
- Automatically notify you of price changes in property you're interested in
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

Home Economics: Our property finance expert answers your questionsOct 19, 2018 2:30
Question: We are three people renting a house together and the utility bills are becoming a nightmare. One of us wants to install a pre-pay meter as she says it’s the best value for money and we can tightly control our spend. I don’t agree, because I’ve heard these are actually quite expensive, but I would also like the control. As it is, we don’t really know where our costs are going. Now with electricity prices rising we really need a solution. The house itself is quite old (1980s) and wouldn’t have great insulation. Our landlord says we can change supplier if we want. We’re with Bord Gáis currently.
