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 am 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: </b>My son is being left some land by his great aunt in her will. He is 15 and it is probably worth around €30,000, which will be great when he’s older. However, I’m concerned he’ll pay tax on this. Will it be immediately or can it somehow be transferred to my wife, under a bigger threshold, and then to our son without incurring a penalty now or in the future?
