We believe that one of the key benefits of the web is its ability to make useful information free and easily accessible to everyone. Whilst historic house prices paid have been available online for some time (you can find every record since 1995 on Zoopla.co.uk), the ability to match these to photos and descriptions of the property at that time it was for sale or to rent hasn’t been possible…until now.

So, what have we done?

We have launched the Zoopla Property Archive – the UK’s first online property archive with over 2 million historic property listings details.  This is a totally unique feature to Zoopla that will become another essential research tool for house hunters to help them make smarter property decisions.

The unique archive covers properties that have been on the market for either sale or rent at some time in the last 10 years.

What will an archived record show?

  • the historic for sale or to rent asking price of a property
  • the date it was last listed on the market
  • images of the property at the time it was last listed for sale or to rent
  • a description of the property at that point in time
  • access to the sold prices of the property, if sold

Where can I find an archived listing?

Historic listings can be found in the ‘Home Values’ section of the Zoopla.co.uk website and are clearly marked with an ‘H’ to indicate a historic listing record is available – see below.

We already combine current property listings for sale and to rent with market value data including free value estimates for every UK home, so by now adding the ability to see millions of property listings details from the past, we are taking property research and virtual curtain twitching to a whole new level.

As well as being a unique and informative research tool, the new Zoopla Property Archive is sure to become a must-use for the property curious who will now be able to see what their home and those of their friends and neighbours looked like in times gone by.

    Rather than looking for general trends based on areas we can now look at historical trends for individual properties..wow
