Please be careful buying any appartment or townhouse in Comerfords Cross, Portmarnock, Co. Dublin. Dodgy dealings. I am one of the victims. My house turns out to be second hand even though it was sold as new build. The deed does not have our name on it even though we paid for it in full to AIB plc as Mortgagee. The banks solicitor deposited our money in the account of the developer who allegedly went into receivership. The developer in receivership bought an appt in the complex. The dev, allegedly bought the appt in july 2014 however it was registered on 11/5/2015 same day the banks solicitor lodged most of our money in the developer(in rec) account.Our townhouse comes up as second hand even though all the others sold as new. Planning in on our property. We have a relatively large side garden at end of terrace which FCC state is a site entrance. Alot more to this story. Don't buy here!

Forgot to mention, can you do some intelligent matching of property listings instead of looking at exact address? I found a listing for an apartment which originally had "Apt 16" and now has "Apt. 16" which breaks the connection on your site.

Would love to see the price a property sold for in the search results table, could do "N/A" until it becomes available on Also want to second having another column with the estate agent so you can filter by them.

The other thing that I noticed is that in certain streets whilst most of the properties up for sale do appear on daft, a smaller number are not on daft but solely on myhome. I guess it would be a problem of copyright or scale to search the data from myhome and add it to what you have if the individual property appears on myhome but not on daft?
DaftDrop 2 years ago
@Regular Reader1: Good idea. I may add a search link to PPR (the old version had it), which searches based on address of a house you see on this site and shows you one or more properties on the PPR that may or may not be the house you're interested in. But it is almost impossible to link (accurately) a house on with a house on PPR, automatically! Thanks for the suggestion, the search is a feature that should be brought back.
Regular Reader1 2 years ago
I think I found the answer to my own question lower down. You are not connected to the PPR and its a question of bandwith?
Regular Reader1 2 years ago
Brilliant site. Useful for buyers for as we know 'some' estate agents don't like dealing with facts. One suggestion though- How feasible is it to seperate 'delisted' from 'sold'. This would make it clearer which properties sold, and which couldn't sell.

Would advise anyone interested in this property to tread carefully. On going saga around identifying deeds has meant this property has been on and off market over last couple of years and moved from sale agreed back to for sale. They might have resolved issues, I don't know but I would be wary about getting involved.

Great tool! It would be amazing if you could also keep the blurb/hotos from Daft ads that are de-listed so that they can be used to compare current houses for sale with what sold nearby (i.e. are you getting more for your money or is it just overvalued).

hi, the ave price from reports for Dublin seems to be much higher than the graph on homepage where average asking for cou with highest average is shown. why is there this gap, eg june 2015 report shows currently 415 ave asking fir Dublin while graph shows ave asking for county with highest asking to be 356.

Would be great if the search criteria could take multiple values to narrow the address field. Such as typos in address could be catered for or alternative spellings like "Phibsboro or Phibsborough" or typos.

chg 4 years ago
Previous month report values change every so often. I think you should query daft monthly to gather monthly report data and then lock these values. As an example, ''Number of houses for sale'' and ''average price'' is different for former months any time I look at them.
q 4 years ago
Under the ''graph'' tab, beside ''Current # of Houses'' chart the number of houses in co. Dublin is 3843, the Feb''s report (reports tab) gives co. Dublin''s houses number of 4,444. Where''s the difference coming from?
@DaftDrop 4 years ago
@warrden631: This site tracks but doesn''t publish sale prices, or even know about them. But you can check the Property Price Register as follows: find a house and on the right you'll see a link which will take you to the Property Price Register, which will show you final sale price of the house or nearby houses. Unfortunately there is no reliable way to link houses on the PPR to houses that were for sale on @xxx: No reason except that it''s fairly pointless and a waste of bandwidth. The server must do a lot of work to obtain its data.

must say that this is what i was looking for as it gives more more insight on houses no longer on the market. collapso doesn''t seem to provide info like the #bedrooms or bath. one question though, is there a way you could start harvesting as wheel? I know some houses for sale seem to appear on only. just as hint, I''ve been looking at properties for over a year now and I''ve noticed a recurring pattern, any house advertised by sherry fitz seem to have an asking price at least 20%/25% higher than others advertised by smaller estate agent, might be an idea to include also the name of the large estate agent as I think they are along with bank trying to push prices up.
Louise 4 years ago
Great site! Have you considered including sqft to the details or is it not realistic?
DaftDrop 4 years ago
@seller: Nothing is "misleading" to the public. DaftDrop, or "house drop" as you have called it, has nothing to gain (or lose, for that matter) by misleading the public. Also, if you viewed the options on the search page, you would see this option: "Include sold/de-listed properties". That will include houses taken off the market -- which is what you require. Not sure what you mean by "Therefore not the correct value", can you elaborate? What "value"?
seller 4 years ago
house drop should include house that may be valued at such a date but hasnt sold and taken off market due to not selling. Therefore not the correct value. Misleading to public otherwise

Great site! Just one suggestion, price decreases should really be in RED and increases in GREEN, it just so confusing as most people normally assosiate RED color with (minus) and green with (+)

@Fmk: well spotted; that is indeed what is incorrectly happening in the case of price increases. Thanks for reporting this.
Fmk 5 years ago
Hi, great site, just one point, in the case of price increases it seems that "% From Previous" is being calculated as the difference as a percentage of "Current Price" rather than of the "Previous Price". Example: Previous Current Price % From Previous €150,000 €175,000 +14.29% I would have expected +16.67%

I think this is a fantastic site and very useful tool. Living in Canada and due to retire soon, I am very much surprised that there isn''t a coherent multiple listing service in Ireland where all houses (or the vast majority) are listed. I find Daftdrop to be a welcome tool as it attempts to address that gap while providing the most useful tool for potential buyers - actual sale price tracking and price changes over time. Well done. My one question is that you are looking for donations. What would be appropriate from the average guy with a family?

Thanks Cormac - donation submitted. I''ve used some other sites in the past treesdontgrowtothesky etc etc and while I found them very useful, unfortunately they didn''t survive because they were not supported. I have to say I find this site brilliant. It''s easy to use, very good analysis, good reporting but most of all it provides pretty much real time and accurate data. For anyone thinking of buying or selling it''s a VERY valuable tool. I buy a couple of papers every Sunday - some of the "analysis" is infantile. I would much prefer to donate to maintain a service like and I would strongly encourage others to do the same to keep it available. Thanks, and best of luck for the future, Brian
DaftDrop 5 years ago
@Brian: Use the Price Drops tab to find a house you''re interested in, and see the "E-mail Notifications" on the right-hand sidebar, and sign up to it. It is currently only on a per-house basis. This functionality might be expanded in a later version of DaftDrop, to allow you to automatically monitor whole areas (depending the criteria you chose). However, this depends on time and funds.

@TT: Well, statistically, it impacts it exactly how you would expect...and there''s no way for DaftDrop or anyone else to know that the EA is playing games with sold properties. But, if they are relatively short lived, and the asking price remains the same, I don''t think it''s a major issue in terms of statistics... But people should stand up to the EAs with this sort of stuff. It''s false advertising and probably illegal.

First of all just to say fantastic site. You should get a bit of advertising on this to make it pay its way. Main reason for comenting: It would seem there is a slight issue with the September increase in price figure. 87 price increases with an average amount of 177 million. Obviously a daft issue where someone has put in a wrong price. It has distorted the overall price trend so that it has now increased in September rather than continuing its fall.

I would look at this site most days and look forward to every "scrape" with great anticipation. I still can''t afford what I want, but am only up to 25% off target now, instead of 50%+. Everytime you scrape, it gives me a little bit more patience. Prices are dropping all the time, as your site testifies. I''ve been in substandard accomodation for 10 years now, with all the frustrations that that entails and this site is my therapy! I keep hoping, with every scrape, that the few houses I am interested in will have dropped to within my reach. If you were to scrape four times a week, that would give me and others out there 4 seretonin uplifting experiences per week!

@atech: Well, there''s a couple of things. There are no new/old links for that example. It''s the same Daft entry (same Daft ID), and same webpage. The only thing that has changed is the price (which I track) and probably the description (which I don''t store/track). This is a rare case where the EA has basically changed the property without creating a new Daft entry... @doubleglaze: I can scrape any days we want, it''s easily configurable. I''ve no contact with though, and I wouldn''t want to scrape two days in a row. I chose Wed and Sat because people tend to like to view on Sunday/Monday mornings and again maybe Thursday...I could scrape 4 days a week but it could end up annoying :) ... I think I will though, I''ve been thinking about it...

I see the list of prices found but there is no link to the old price only a date; used be able to link also I think. Maybe they had kept a database of old prices or something, it was handy because you could look at the old ad to see if the spec was the same. The one I was referring to was in Coppeen, Enniskeane, West Cork. It fell from €500k to €80k but the latest ad says 1 acre while an image of the land registry map appears much larger. Possibly the €500k was for the entire landholding.

@atech: If you click the row, you''ll see all the prices found on the right hand side of your browser. Is that what you mean? What property is it, I can investigate more and see what you mean?

May have been mentioned already but is it possible to link to the old price also like used to do? I see a property that has dropped 84% but I think the earlier price may have included more acres which distorts the overall % falls. Kudos on the site.

Both your good self and Collapso seem to do a price harvest about twice-weekly and these are done on the same day. This means that ye are posting more or less the same DAFT drops. As someone who has become addicted to both sites, could ye coordinate things between ye so that we have four price harvests per week, instead of two?! Like, one of ye harvests on Monday and Saturday. The other harvests on Wednesday and Thursday.... Not that I''m being demanding or anything!

It''s not late in the day for people young people who are/were considering their first purchase...And hey, if the prices rise, but might be called ;)... You''re right about the graphs, there is a tonne of data to make use of.

Seems a bit late in the day to be setting up this website?! I''m not saying prices won''t fall further but it''s ironic now how the majority of people seem to be of the opinion that house prices will fall... Probably the same majority who thought they would keep rising forever during the boom. Site is alright but think the data could be presented more nicely, especially the skinny barchart graph! since you have the data, would be nice to see a set of graphs for each county etc.

Thanks for the comments, folks! @June: I''m going to add new stats soon. @leftie: Think you''ve hit the nail on the head. Although, if we all hold out, what''ll happen? :) @Get real: Thanks for the spread the word ;)...

Great Webiste...I''ll spread the word. Houses prices are still overpriced massively, there is no value for money out there at all. Hopefully in 1/2 years time im might start looking properly. This property crash is going to keep going for years.

Hey, great website - definitely helping a person like me who has just sold a 3 bed and wants to trade up. I think I will rent for a while. House price falls are gathering pace if anything - think reality is setting in and people are slashing prices to get shot of a devaluing asset!

just wonder if its possible that you show your harvest data on the graphs, currently the graphs only show end of month data? so average house prices for the harvest days in-between are lost. Would be nice if you could scroll over graphs and all harvests house price values would be shown?

@Westie, thanks for the feedback. This shouldn''t happen, it should wrap accordingly. What browser are you using? Could you forward details (or maybe even a screenshot?) to

Hey Liking the site - when I do a filter on Roscommon though the proce drop date doesn''t display as the word "roscommon" requires a wider column and pushed the last column off the page. Could this be fixed??

@June: here''s the house that brought the average so high: ... €324,950,500. Obviously meant to be €324,950. Anyway, that''s fixed now, so graphs are back to normal. Will put some checks in to automatically flag obvious mistaken prices like this...Thanks.

I thought so, cheers for quick response. Great website btw.

@June: you''re correct, there''s a bug, which occurred just today, which shows an increase which should not be there. There is definitely no increasing going will be fixed later on or tomorrow!

The CSO''s residential property price index showed that house prices fell by 2.1% in June, this does not correlate with the rise you have recorded in you graphs re ROI average house price for the month of June...or am i not spotting something?

@Daftdrop, Cheers for reply, I will wait, can''t afford anything at the moment anyway!
DaftDrop 7 years ago
@Jen: That''s the $64000 question. It depends on your needs though. If your question is actually "will prices continue to fall?", then yes! Prices are falling, and will continue to fall, in my opinion. There is very little evidence which suggests otherwise. There''s a surplus of houses, and banks are only lending to least-risky buyers. NAMA are hanging onto property which will be on sale within coming months (I think). No property bubble burst ever has a "soft landing", and ours is no different. I think prices will go down and down and down to levels seen in most countries (i.e., 3 times a salary, not 6). And given the economic uncertainty, raising interest levels, new property tax/water charges, increasing PAYE, etc., etc., it''s hard to even know how much one could even afford in 2 years time. Check out the graphs (!graphView)...when they start flattening out, that''s when I would buy ;) ... but I''d say it could be 5 years to be honest! I''m no expert though; just a curious potential buyer like yourself. I would deffo hold off until 2012 though...probably not what you want to hear!

@Foyboy: Thanks Foyboy...I''d say that house will have to go down a bit further before it''ll sell.

Excellent website. Thank you very much, very useful. House ID: 484888 was originally advertised at €450,000, first time I saw it, about 5 years ago. Now €275,000 (5 Beds, Tullygay, Letterkenny). Sorry I can''t prove the original price, but it has been on the market for a really long time now.

@jen: Thanks Jen! @Bertie: The bedrooms and min/max options are next on the list and I''ll get them added in the next few days. I''m also aware about the ''Dublin 14'' type issue -- there needs to be a way to search an exact phrase using quotation marks. Next on list :) ... Thanks for the msg.
Bertie 7 years ago
In fact eh, nice tool - would be nice to be able to do the same sort of search as you can do on Daft i.e. enter the number of rooms, min/max price etc. Entering ''Dublin 14'' returns loads of results, most of which I''m not interested in. - Bertie.

Hi Daftdrop, love the site and will be using it alot over the next 12 months. Hope to buy a home at a realistic price soon.
DaftDrop 7 years ago
@passing toll: Thanks for suggestion. Yes, that would make sense given it''s very annoying to have to click 12 times just to go back a year. Although DaftDrop data only goes back to May 21st, so it''s not really an issue right now but I''ll look into that going ahead...

Can you arrange the counties of the pie chart by number instead of county name? It will make it easier to immediately see the biggest or smallest pieces of it.
Tommycahir 7 years ago
I would recommend that a feature to export to an excel file is added as this enables people view the data offline also. I would also suggest that if possible the county selection box is enabled to allow multiple county selections eg I may want to see changes in Carlow and Wexford. (similar comment with locality selection eg Ballon & Bunclody) Regards Tommy

@Ash: Thanks for the feedback Ash. DaftDrop has only been tracking prices since early May, and there have been no price changes in Watergrasshill since then -- that''s why no results are showing up :) However, all houses are still being tracked, it''s only the houses with detected price changes that show up in results. Hope this helps.
