Moving house is incredibly exciting. But it's also incredibly risky too.
Naturally, you'll want to discover ANYTHING that may deter you from moving to the area - before you move house.
Your new neighbourhood might have a high level of burglaries, unacceptable unemployment rates, poor house price trends, or inadequate schools.
You might think you can cope with one or two negative aspects of a neighbourhood, but what if there are more things you don't know about?
Our Homebuyer Reports will tell you EVERYTHING about the neighbourhood, to help you decide it is suitable for your and your family, and to ensure that you don't regret moving to the area.
Our job is to tell you all the good things - and the bad things - about your new neighbourhood, to take away the risk of moving.

Moving house is one of the riskiest - and most expensive - things you'll do in your life.
After you move to a new house, you might discover problems with the property itself. Most property problems are able to be fixed. But move to the wrong neighbourhood and there's nothing you can do, apart from packing up and moving house again.
A survey by home security experts Yale found that of the 50 biggest concerns that a typical homebuyer has, 22 of them are about the neighbourhood, rather than the property itself. Most of those concerns, such as crime rates, environmental factors, declining house prices, access to essential amenities, proximity to good schools etc. are out of your control.
Our reports take the sting out of moving to a bad neighbourhood by providing you essential insight and information for the area you're moving to - right down to street level.
Your estate agent may give you their opinion of your new neighbourhood, but they quite often leave out the negatives in the hope of enticing you to purchase the property.
Relying on a local report from a conveyancing firm will only give you half the story. You can trust a ZoomLocal Neighbourhood Report to give you an unbiased analysis of any postcode in England or Wales.
We don't hide the bad stuff, meaning you get the big picture about your new neighbourhood, giving you the opportunity to pull out of a purchase before it's too late.
All this information is packed into a 50-page postcode report - each one is unique and tailored to the neighbourhood you're interested in learning about. Each contains a huge amount of data aggregated from around 80 official (as well as our own) databases, including statistics from the Office for National Statistics, Census data, Ofsted, data.gov, Highways Agency, Land Registry and many many more. Researching all this information would take hours by yourself.
Each report is crammed full of essential information designed to help you decide if the neighbourhood is suitable for you and your family. You'll get 50 pages of information to help you research the neighbourhood fully, including:

We apologise for the inconvenience, but we're looking to relaunch our brand new neighbourhood reports later in the year.
Here's a few things that people have been saying about our ZoomLocal Reports:

The reports are very in depth and I wish I had this service when I moved 18 months ago!Katie Bell - Brand Identity Queen
Amazing, and really detailed. When I used to buy property I would have welcomed a resource this thorough.Lindsey Sharrat - Consultant and Writer
Selling a property is becoming increasingly difficult in the current political and financial climate, and often takes longer than you'd anticipate. It's also stressful - not just for you, but your family too.
When you download a ZoomLocal Neighbourhood Report we'll also give you a copy of our eBook, "Sell Your House Successfully", which contains tips, tricks and advice how to sell your house quickly and easily.
* Sorry, we don't have the data to produce any Scottish reports just yet. We're still in the process of collecting demographic data for all Scottish postcodes. We should be able to offer this in 2019. Please accept our apologies.
