Compare Online Estate Agents

Compare the packages provided and narrow down the perfect match based on what you need. - a property website with a key difference. We use large open datasets and combine them with other data sources in order to provide a number of tools related to property in the UK. These are created to be simple to use and help enable people to make informed decisions related to moving home - from researching new areas to live to searching for property to buy or rent.

Are you searching for somewhere to live but are not constrained to any part of the UK? You can now search for areas based upon your budget and tailor to only show areas that have a low crime rate overall, or lower crime of certain types. You can see areas with concentration of jobs nearby, areas where the schools are good - from primary and seconday through to colleges. You can even find areas with nearby train stations and motorway junctions for travel link compatibility. We have also recently included a filter to show areas ranked by public open green areas like parks and open greenery. Searches can be made on distance or by travel time whether you walk, cycle, drive or use trains/buses. So you can find areas within 30 minutes by public transport of your place of work.

There are other specific tools you can use once you have narrowed down, or shortlisted, specific areas to your search. You can see a data card showing full data on the areas shortlisted and have them ranked against each other.

There is also a browse section where you can browse every postcode area, district and sector of the UK and see full statistics for each covering everything from house prices, crime, travel, green areas, schools and more. We will show you the types of people living in each area using CENSUS data based upon the concentration of people too.

Other tools available allow more granular searches - so you can see where certain types of people live from anywhere in the UK, find safe areas from any location based upon crime statistics, check for areas where car insurance may be cheaper and more.

We developed a real-time updating crime map for anywhere in the UK using the most up-to-date data provided by the police. You can scroll the map around and see updated crime incidents marked on the map and click each to see the crime, area info, as well as the incident investigation history. You can choose to filter the map to show only crimes of a certain type or types. You can even set the map to only show solved crimes where the incident has been investigated and an outcome provided.

For those looking to research we have extensive free tools based upon UK house prices. Want to know areas of the UK where house prices are rising fastest or falling? Use our house price trends tool. Want to see house price history for any home sold since 1995 - search our sold prices. We will show you the price history, the typical mortgage paid at time of sale using historic interest rates and use inflation data to show prices in real terms too.

Looking for the best or worst schools? We have created league tables as well as a seach tool to show the best schools within a radius of any area. These use government published performance data to rank schools and colleges by performance - from primary and seconday through to vocational and A-Level colleges.

We are constantly adding more helpful tools and we now offer a free valuation tool so you can value your home online quickly and get an estimate based on price trends. If you have purchased, or are looking to purchase with Help To Buy, we have a calculator to break down the way Help To Buy works and show you what the possible outcome could be when the Help To Buy loan is no longer interest-free (interest is charged after five years).

We have a number of mapping tools and a random address and phone number generator you can use for data generation or validation purposes. Use our map distance or map area calculators to accurately measure distances on a map - or using our park finder to find parks and create running, cycling and workout routes.

Check the effects of inflation by using our inflation calculator to see how the value of money has changed. Check how much something for any year since year 1800 compares to another year in real terms. For property we will also show you the typical mortgage costs by using actual bank interest rate data.
