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

With all the commotion of the last decade or so, markets are not very fashionable these days. We forget that markets work a lot of the time and when they work well, they are invaluable. They help identify who has the greatest need for something, as identified by how much they are willing to give up to get it, and transfer it to them.
