Property prices are now freely available that date back to January 2010 up to the present market with future updates in the information happening within about one month of a property being sold. Searches are available on a county or location basis in any one year, or month rage within a year dating from 1st January 2010.
Gerard O’Toole, Director commented that” the setting up of a publication of the property price register is to be welcomed and is long overdue. Property professionals have been working largely in the dark and this is a step in the right direction. We have for far too long relied on inaccurate data such as the CSO information which importantly tended to lag the market and importantly excluded cash purchases. From a consumers point of view this move is of real benefit. At the click of a button they can see exactly what properties may have sold in their area and at what price. This will help to create certainly in values and help to underpin the performance of the market going forward”.
