I would imagine the catch is that you will now have to pay property tax.

Department of Justice?

Legislation still to be enacted?

Authority still to be set up?

"market trends” and "statistical purposes'
I predict a load of graphs.

I'd say the catch will be that it will be nowhere near specific enough to be of any use to anybody.

It will probably be a mirror of the PTSB/ESRI index but with figures from the revenue rather than PTSB mortgage figures.

Actually, I bet there will be different levels of access.

Joe Public gets a quarterly report with graphs.

Bankers, EAs, and Solicitors get access to the full database, but with a €100 fee attached to every query submitted.

The database will be owned by the the Department of the Environment, Heritage and Local Government, but Property Services Regulatory Authority will take responsibility for publishing the data.

Who reckons the report will simply say "Never a better time to buy" each month?

They finally found something to do!

That was the quango set up in Navan a couple of years back which had no discernable purpose but to rent office space.

In fairness there is a dire need for this particular agency but not for the purposes of publishing property price data.

They are supposed to regulate property management companies.

Not sure why this can't just be provided by the Revenue or the land registry.

I bet the way they're going to go about it is going to cost an absolute fortune. (Hence the €100 a query jibe)

Surely all it needs is a monthly downloadable CSV file, or a web application with an open API that anyone who wants to can write an application against?

Would cost next to nothing.
