DaftDrop IE is the original Irish DaftDrop, the non-profit commercial 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 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

People planning to buy a home have every right to feel furious about the activities of cuckoo funds snapping new developments en masse.

Q We've found a house we really want to buy. However, it shares a side passage with its neighbour which leads into both gardens openly. The estate agent says it's never been a problem, but I found out the neighbour is a nice elderly lady, who won't be the owner forever. It's a very odd design and I'm worried about both privacy and access issues. There is a burlap fence between the two houses most of the way down the garden, but it stops short of the top, where the access divides into two without impediment. Even if I put up a gate, there's nothing to attach it to. What can I do to secure my right to it?

Architects are often scathing about planners, for reasons that may be obvious. Town and county planners tend to be conservative, after all, even where conservation is not necessarily desirable. They like to preserve vernacular architecture exactly as it is, and they take a poor view of ostentatious designs for giant glass-and-steel cubes amid thatched Connemara villages. So they also get in the way of the architects' dreams of fame and fortune.

In August 1930, the Irish artist Harry Kernoff sailed to Leningrad on board the Soviet ship Kooperatsiya (Cooperation) as part of a delegation of the Irish Friends of Soviet Russia. It was an interesting group. Kernoff's travelling companions included the political activists Hanna Sheehy Skeffington and Charlotte Despard, and Irish Republicans David Fitzgerald and George Gilmore (who travelled under a false name). Their educational tour took them from Leningrad to Moscow, Baku, Tiflis, and Vladikavkaz.
