  1. Hi Dan, Sorry for not replying sooner, I don't visit the forum much these days. Yes, I am just about breaking even with it now (running costs only). I still feel bad about introducing the subscription model but I really had no choice. Thanks for the continued support, I really appreciate it. No problem, thanks for using it in the past. I'm sorry you don't think it's worth £1.99 per month. There are other extensions available which are free
  2. Thanks for the kind words. Yes, I've had to tweak it a couple of times to find the right balance as ultimately there are so many ways to do it. There is no point in going nuclear as the extension relies on users to find the prices, with no users then the price history won't be as up to date (or could be missing) in some places. The current user base provides pretty good coverage at the moment and I don't want to jeopardise that hence the generous allowance.
  3. It's calculated based on average usage over a rolling period, I'd rather not disclose the actual calculation but it's generous IMO. 95% of users won't be restricted and will never see blurred prices. I can't go down the ads route, it breaks Google's TOS (plus I dislike them anyway). I think £1.99 a month is pretty cheap but very few people have subscribed. My uninstall rate has shot up massively and a lot of people are unhappy about it but at the end of the day I'm not a charity. Over the last 3 years I've sunk £3000+ of my own money into running it and hundreds (maybe even thousands) of
  4. I've answered this in the other thread but it's there by design. Approximately 5% of Property Log users are currently being usage capped as I am trying to break even on server costs. See here: https://www.propertylog.net/why-is-the-price-history-blurred The current usage limit is pretty generous, 95% of users will never get blurred prices.
  5. @Roman Roady This is normal, the zeroes are there to stop people from copying and pasting the price history into a text editor to reveal the actual price. I had to implement the blurring of prices for some users (the top 5%) as I am trying to break even on server costs. I'll drop you a PM in a moment as I want to give you free unrestricted access as you are keeping the price drop thread alive.
  6. A year ago we all thought house prices would fall dramatically and become affordable, 12 months on and prices are up 6.5%. Buying a house a year ago would have been a massive risk that any sensible person would have avoided. With all the money printing, props and the "economic boom" predicted when lockdown ends I can only see prices going up even more
  7. Thank you all, I appreciate the support and again, I'm sorry I've had to introduce this.
  8. Thanks, glad you find it useful. Using ads is a bit of a grey area unfortunately and Google have very strict guidelines on using them hence why I've avoided this route (plus I don't like them anyway). Thanks moonriver. I have disabled all donation messages in the Chrome extension, changed the page on my website and have instead gone down a different route. It'll be highly unpopular with a lot of users but it's the only way I can keep the extension going. If a user exceeds a certain number of API requests per month they'll need to subscribe. I don't feel comfortable accepting donat
  9. Update - April 4th 2021 I'm sorry to announce that Property Log Pro will not be accepting any new registrations. All Pro users have been refunded and emailed. Those who did sign up can still log in and use it until the end of the month. The Pro tool I created is just not appealing to 99.9% of my users and instead I am going to focus on the Chrome extension.
  10. Thanks for signing up, I hope you enjoy using it. If you need any help or have any questions send me a message through the 'Support' link top right and I'll do my best to help you
  11. I'm afraid not, there is simply not enough data for Northern Ireland. I will add a message on the homepage stating this. The Chrome Extension will work as normal though.
  12. Update - April 1st 2021 Good and bad news this month, let's start with the bad... The average initial asking price jumped a whopping 6.5% in March. The only regions to show drops were London (-4.1%) and the East of England (-2.2%). The extension has had a large influx of new users which is great but with that comes a lot of problems such as attacks on the servers, people writing scripts to hammer the API etc etc. I've had to upgrade servers (again), increase my defences and have generally spent a lot of time in stopping these attacks. Quite simply, the amount of money I'm s
  13. Couple of interesting ones: https://www.rightmove.co.uk/properties/88100357#/ https://www.rightmove.co.uk/properties/76439350#/
  14. No problem, hopefully people find them useful. The county data is even more revealing! You can post them if you like
  15. I've spent the last couple of hours writing code to generate the following, I hope they give a useful insight into asking prices. I can also break down by county but that will have to wait...! Anyway, here are some charts: These are not adjusted in any way.
