Selective count of MyHome.ie properties for Sale

This is just a simple count of the number of properties (all types, all price ranges) on myhome.ie in certain areas, at the same time everyday for the past week. Nothing too much can be read into these figures (i.e. during the day, 20 could be added, 15 sold, and 15 added but it would look like there has been no sales, etc.).

Still it does seem to show an inexorable rise in the overall number of properies for sale (33 last week) and some areas are more stagnant then others (Firhouse/Citywest/Lucan), or indeed unsold stock apparently rising (Leixlip).

On a related note,

Anyone notice daftwatch is not updating today as daft is over 31K now.

daftwatch.atspace.com/

I’d take the Daft total figures with a pinch of salt. Some properties are listed more than once, which distorts the figures.

Is that a new phenomenon or have there always been duplicates?

The Daft figures are useful as an indicator of trends, i.e. whether inventory is in general going up or down, not much else.

Yep, I saw that alright. atspace.com are in the middle of maintenance of some sort, which means the site is visible, but the hourly uploads aren’t happening at the moment. The data is still being recorded though, so it’ll appear whenever I can upload again.

Cool, and just want to say that it’s a brilliant site as well!

Well, the manual web-based upload is working now, so I’ll try and do the front-page graphs every few hours during the day, at least.

Thanks DNPG and what a great site.

This is an increase of 192 properties over approx. 2 weeks ago.

Considering the volume of people in Dublin and it hinterlands, is that a lot though?

I know its more than what’s been available in the last few years, but what’s the normal ratios for a capital city?

schnackbox> Good point. I don’t know the answer to that. The only thing it (appears to) show is that more houses are coming on the market then are being sold.

Summary graph:

Can people see the graph above? just wondering if we uploaded it ok

You sure did.

for the love of god when will it level off!!!

Christmas 07 :smiley: then it will be off again

Unless:

By summers END people are utterly desperate so they flood the rental market with unsold proeprties to cut losses and finally bring both the sales & rental markets down at once.

I think the rental upward trend is already showing signs of reversal.
The properties for rental already seems to be trending up the upside even while the for sale chart in places like Dublin looks like its going to need a logarithmic scale soon!
