Property News Stats

It looks like something is conveniently broken on Property News stats.

Look at 192a Upper Malone Rd, listed today at £1.5mm under one hour ago, currently at over 36,000 page views.

Here's the agent tweeting about it 10 months ago: https://twitter.com/trhomes/status/586573861233303552

Here it is as BelTel Homefinder Property of the Week 8 months ago: http://www.belfasttelegraph.co.uk/video-news/property-of-the-week/video-homefinder-property-of-the-week-192a-upper-malone-road-belfast-31276425.html

Here it is on Mitula, described as advertised on Property News two weeks and one day ago: http://property.mitula.co.uk/property/homes-belfast-malone-road

So listings that appear to be new and highly viewed are probably old. Careful.

That's happened on quite a number of properties. It seems to be a regular trick. Pull it from PropertyNews for a short while then stick it back on. Just from memory here's one in Jordanstown that was for sale at this price before Christmas:

http://www.propertynews.com/Property/Jordanstown/TRLTRL69668/25-Lenamore-Avenue/364638243/Page1

Yet listed as "Property Added: 11th January 2016".

There's a few like it in Belfast too. I guess it must work now and again.

This feature seems to have been completely removed.

Must be the rapid increase in sales that led to this decision. NI property is definitely taking off.

Property pal removed the feature a while ago after pressure from agents.

PN only implemented the feature as a reaction to PP. I actually stopped looking at PP when they removed the feature.

I notice that Templeton have also removed their current offer "feature" from their listings.

It's an interesting development.

It is sad that it is gone as it was a really handy feature. So now, instead of being able to identify when a property is potentially 'dealable', you get to just put daft offers in on everything and waste everyone's time. This said, I do notice that agents had taken to resisting properties periodically, so it did ruin the stats somewhat. All we need is propertybee to return and restart the whole cycle!

Since these stats are no longer, I'll just put this here.

Zoopla's most reduced properties show 9 new entrants today alone. Looks like the much-promised takeoff is crash landing:

Looks a little like 2008 there.
