What are ZoomLocal Reports?

The homebuying process is often regarded as one of the most significant investments a person will ever make. With so much to consider, it is sometimes easy to forget the multitude of risks associated with relocating to a new neighborhood. If you end up moving to a new area before taking the time to research what it is like to live there, you may end up regretting it for years to come.

But collating this kind of data is a massive task, and it can take many hours of work to ensure all the relevant information has been covered. Not even a conveyancer’s search will include material on the local neighborhood and those that live there. That’s why we’ve partnered up with the ZoomLocal team. Their comprehensive neighborhood reports are designed to eradicate some of the major risks that are often associated with moving to a new area.

By collating information from over 80 sources, these expansive 50+ page reports will tell you EVERYTHING there is to know about your new neighborhood for only £8.00! That’s over 50% less than the standard RRP.                                                                                                                                                                                                              Neighbourhood Reports
