Daft.ie/AIRO Property Value Heatmaps
Property Value Viewer
This mapping application has been developed by Ronan Lyons of Oxford University and daft.ie and Justin Gleeson, of the All-Island Research Observatory (www.airo.ie) at NUI Maynooth using OSi's online web map service MapGenie.
The easy to use system maps over 1.1 million records from the daft.ie nationwide database and provides information on list prices for 1,117 areas in the country and rents for 312 areas. Combining this information also provides information on rental yields for all 4,509 Census districts (electoral divisions and enumerator areas) in the country.
The methodology used makes each area comparable by controlling for differences in properties (such as type and size) - for more on the methodology, click here. The averages shown for each area are weighted average prices and rents across five property sizes (1-5 beds) and 5 property types (apartment, terrace, semi-detached, bungalow and detached). Relationships between property types are calculated at the regional level (Dublin, other cities, Leinster, Munster and Connact-Ulster), which is how estimates for particular property types exist even in areas where such properties (e.g. 1-bed apartments) are rare. It should also be noted that, even with the large number of distinct zones, it is possible further variation exists within any given zone. Also, prices for any given quarter refer to listings made in that quarter, not for all properties on the market at that time; thus 2012 Q2 prices refer to average for properties coming on to the market in April, May and June 2012.
This mapping tool is based on ArcGIS Viewer for Flex technology from ESRI (see ESRI Ireland for more details) and will run on any device that supports Flash.
The unique DAFT Price Zones (DPZs) have been developed by aggregating OSi
electoral division (ED) and enumerator area (EA) boundaries. The background
mapping on the site is based on
and provides the most complete and highest quality map data available for
Ireland. Both boundaries and background mapping have been made available
courtesy of the OSi on a temporary basis for this research project.
