Why is a neighbourhood report essential? ZoomLocal

Buying a new house is the most expensive decision you’ll make in your life, and certainly the riskiest. That is why ZoomLocal provide such detailed reports.

Move to a bad neighbourhood and your family may regret it for years. Of the top 50 concerns that homebuyers have about moving home, 22 of these concerns are about the neighbourhood – not the property itself.

You’d consider a conveyancer’s local search an essential step in the homebuying purchase, wouldn’t you? But one thing is missing from these reports – information about the neighbourhood and the people that live there. We want to help you make the right decision for your move.

To eliminate the risk ZoomLocal have collated all the information you might need into a comprehensive 48 page neighbourhood report including crime rates, property prices, environmental concerns, access to local amenities, and much, much more.

The report provides information on areas such as:

Crime Rates (anti-social behaviour, local police force and neighbourhood problems)

Demographics (local population, social grades, age ranges, occupations and unemployment rates)

Politics (local council HQ, Election turnout, & MP contact details)

Housing (Average house prices, house types, council tax bands & average fuel bills)

Education (Ofsted ratings, local primary & secondary schools)

Health (general health services, dentists and nearest hospitals)

Environment (environmental concerns, air quality & local power stations)

Transport (airports, trains & tubes & car parking)

Leisure & Tourism (tourist information, libraries, cinema, churches and leisure centres)

Simply click the link on the site, enter your postcode and start to discover if your new neighbourhood could be a nightmare or a dream prospect.
