Are you risking your family's happiness by moving house without knowing about the neighbourhood?
Are you moving to a new area that you may regret for years?
Unless you've actually lived in a neighbourhood, or have friends and family who live there, you don't truly know what it's like to live there.
This means that buying a property can be a huge risk. Go ahead and ask yourself:
These are just some of the questions that make moving home a gamble - once you've moved in it's too late.
There are two options you can take:
If you've got family then this decision becomes even more important.
Luckily, you can play it safe and download a comprehensive ZoomLocal report, which will give you the answers you need before you decide to buy a house in the wrong area.
Our homebuyers report looks at all the essential information to help you to eliminate doubt and worry about the new neighbourhood you're moving to.
Home Security specialists Yale commissioned a report to discover the primary concerns that homebuyers have when moving house.
Of the top 50 concerns, 22 were concerning the local neighbourhood, such as the local crime rates, noisy neighbours, nearest supermarket, broadband speeds, proximity to essential services, etc.
Unfortunately, local estate agents don't supply this information in their house particulars, which leaves you having to spend hours researching - or worse, making guesses - about the neighbourhood.
Take away the guesswork and risk by downloading our homebuyer's neighbourhood report before you buy.
ZoomLocal is the culmination of 13 years of collecting information about every aspect of the UK.
In 2004 our founder, Chris Haycock of parent company CliqTo, built one of the first events listings guides for Britain, BritEvents.com. Realising that he was passionate about hyperlocal information, he went on to build dozens more informational websites in many industries, including travel, government, society, sport, legal, education and business.
One of these websites, www.postcodearea.co.uk went on to be hugely successful - and still is - attracting over 10,000 unique visits per day from those looking for information about postcodes across the UK.
Every one of these websites relied on huge amounts of locational-based information, amassing tens of millions of records of local businesses, points of interest, postcodes and demographics.
In 2017 Chris' dream of aggregating all this information into one amazing resource came true, and ZoomLocal was born.
Aggregating and filling in the gaps in this data was a mammoth task. Hundreds of hours of research, tens of thousands of lines of code, blood, sweat and tears has gone into building ZoomLocal to ensure that it becomes the primary source of useful information about every aspect of society on a hyperlocal level.
We hope you believe the effort we have put in has made it worth it, and that you get a huge amount of value from the local reports we produce.
Our website and our downloadable reports contain data provided by various organisations under the Open Government Licence v1.0.
