What does DaftDrop do?

DaftDrop is tracking over 1.5 million residential and commercial properties that were, or still are, for sale across Ireland, the UK, & Australia. DaftDrop provides the easy way to determine the market history of a property or area, and to gain insights into the overall property market throughout Ireland, England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, and Australia!

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 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

2007 There are signs that all is not well in the property market - new developments aren't selling out, buyers are pulling out of sales and a daft.ie report indicates a slowdown in prices in the second quarter of the year. But vested interests are still talking a buoyant game and not everyone is happy with those who question the strength of the market. Taoiseach Bertie Ahern puts it bluntly: "Sitting on the sidelines, cribbing and moaning is a lost opportunity… I don't know how people who engage in that don't commit suicide."

Ihave decided to start a matchmaking agency. To sign up there's no heavily-filtered selfie or witty/flirtatious description of your interests required. Instead, I'll be looking for people who are in full-time, permanent employment with a clean credit rating and no loans.
