What is ZoomLocal?

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:

  • Am I moving to a crime-ridden area?
  • Will it be easy to commute to work?
  • Is there a high unemployment rate?
  • Are the average fuel bills extortionate?
  • Is there a GP locally?
  • How far is the nearest hospital?
  • Have the schools got good Ofsted ratings?
  • Is the air quality poor?

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:

  1. Take a gamble and hope for the best
  2. Buy a ZoomLocal report and play safe

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.

Why do I need this report?

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.

For peace of mind we highly recommend having a Zoom Local report as part of the survey process on any property. Either click on the link above or ask our sales team when booking your survey!
