Ireland property price drops Daft

Hi folks, I’m not sure if this is the right place to post this? However, I have been working on a little project searching through the Daft website for price drops, similar to work done by and verbatim.There are still some bugs in the code that I have to sort out.I hope to run the program once a week and post the results on a website I am working on. Check out some of my results so far, I have only processed about 10% of the data,sorry, I have not put them in any order.

oops, linkes not working!

Nice work Sidney!
I wonder if it would be possible to include the amount of the drop and the percentage and rank the drops by size, so viewers can see at a glance, the size of the price falls.

Nice one. However some rows are being repeated, e.g. 20 Riversdale Park, Palmerstown, Dublin 20, West Co. Dublin

I was able to get onto your report once, but it hasn’t worked for me since. Looked good anyway.

I presume you’re using Excel to process the data??

No , I am just using Notepad and Java, it takes about 2 hours to go get 10000 properties, then compare to a report I generated previously and output the results in HTML, this only takes a few minutes. New report out now. Detected a 43% drop in a new site complex in Oakgrove, Bohertrine, Tipperary town, Co. Tipperary from 700000 to 395000. Can anyone confirm this? Not sure if this is a mistake.

Here is the old link 700,000 … cd=1&gl=ie

new link 395,000

-305000 -43%

I have uploaded these reports onto the following website:

You may notice that some properties are listed in more than one once, this is due to multiple listings of the same property. I tried to remove as many as I can.

Looks good.

Price increases are showing up as 0% though, and the “Price Drop” shows up as negative:
