Daft.ie release inaugural "Consumer Attitudes Survey"

Today we released the results of our inaugural "Consumer Attitudes Survey" of over 2,000 people.
It is the first survey we have run which measures consumer's perceptions of the property market and their purchasing intentions.

Some of the key findings include;

  • Availability of mortgage credit is considered the most important factor affecting house prices this year.

    What are the three most important factors..
  • 38% of respondents intend to purchase a property in 2012

    Do you wish to buy a property in the future?
  • 64% of people do not think current prices reflect good value in their region

    Do current prices reflect good value for buyers?

The launch of the inaugural Daft.ie Consumers Attitude Survey gives us a deep insight into our consumers' perceptions of the state of the property market both nationally and locally, and it also gives us an indication of people's intention to participate within the property market. We believe these on-going surveys will act as an important indicator for measuring consumer sentiment.

The results of the survey are available from

    House prices will rise in the next 5 years - that's for certain. Demand is there - either investors from oversea will see the yield value and buy for letting or banks will start lending to high net equity investors.

    Does it make sense that prices in Olso/London/ Paris and Frankfurt are new €5000 to €6500 per m² and in Dublin we are looking at €2,500. Of course Ireland will aligned with internal norms over time. It the same morons that predicted house prices would not crash are now in denial about house price rises . Demand X no new stock = price increases . This is the golden oppertunity , you will look back in 2 years and regret if you do not buy.
