Reports

 

DNG House Price Gauge (DNG HPG) - Dublin

The DNG HPG has been tracking price movements in the Dublin residential resale property market for almost 20 years.  The DNG HPG is produced on a quarterly basis at the end of March, June, September and December. The HPG uses a representative sample of existing homes located across the Dublin are which are revalued by DNG local expert valuers in each area each quarter. As a result, DNG Research is able to produce timely, relevant and accurate statistics on price movements in the Dublin residential property market.

 

DNG Apartment Price Gauge (DNG APG) - Dublin

The Apartment Price Gauge has been tracking changes in apartment prices across Dublin since its inception in 2014. The DNG APG is produced on a quarterly basis alongside the HPG, and also uses a representative sample of apartment types which are revalued by DNG’s local expert valuers in each area each quarter. As well as looking at the Dublin market as a whole, the APG also examines price trends according to the number of bedrooms a property contains and also across different areas of the city. 

 

DNG Nationwide National Price Gauge (DNG NPG) – National

The most recent addition to the suite of price reports produced by DNG Research is the National Price Gauge. The DNG NPG analyses price movements in residential property across the entire country and the results are released half yearly in June and December each year.  As well as looking at the national picture, the DNG NPG analyses price movement trends by region.

The DNG NPG measures the movement in prices of a representative sample of properties drawn from all areas of the country but excluding the Dublin region. Results are also given by property type and by the number of bedrooms the property contains.

 

Housing Transaction Levels – Ireland & UK

DNG Research track the number of residential property transactions that occur in Ireland and the UK on a quarterly basis, using data from the Property Services Regulatory Authority in Ireland and Gov.uk in the UK, enabling comparison and monitoring of sales levels in Ireland compared to our nearest neighbours.
