New sort and listing history tools now on Zoopla

We have just rolled out two great new features on Zoopla.co.uk. They’re designed to make your search for property for sale or to rent even easier and provide you with up to date information on the property market. Ultimately, they exist to help you make the best possible property related decisions.

Sort by: ‘Most Reduced’ or ‘Most Popular’

When you search property to buy or property to rent on Zoopla.co.uk you can now sort your results by ‘Most Reduced’ or ‘Most Popular’. You’ll find these clever little tools at the top of the search results, right next to our existing sort features:  Highest Price, Lowest Price and Oldest Listings – see the images with the highlights below.

Listing History

The other feature, the first of its kind in the UK, is a powerful listings history information box. We’ve done all the hard work and in this box you’ll find the history of any property for sale or to rent which includes: when the property was first listed on Zoopla, asking/rental price changes, the number of page views the property has received and last sale date where applicable and where we know it. This clever little box can be found on the right hand side of the property details page – see the image below.

All 27m UK homes listed on the new Zoopla.co.uk property app

Ever walked past the home of your dreams and wondered if it’s for sale or what it last sold for, or even what it might be valued at right now?

Perhaps you’re just naturally curious or a bit of a nosey neighbour?

Well, the new Zoopla property app caters for everyone – property addicts, home-hunters, owners and estate agents.

It’s the ultimate, highly addictive, free resource for the residential property market giving you access to much more than just property for sale or to rent listings. Our app has over 15m sold prices (who paid what for what), allows you to generate current value estimates on any UK home (27m of them!) as well as access to essential local market information (what’s happening in my area), all available on the move!

List view Map view Augmented reality

There are a few property related apps out there, but we have some genuine points of difference; the main one being that we do more than just for sale or to rent listings. Here are some more:

1. Map-led search as well as list view and Augmented Reality*

2. Free, instant value estimates for all 27 million UK homes – yes, your home will be on our app

3. Over 15 million house prices paid dating back to 1995 – who paid what for what?

4. Local market data including average home values by area – essential research

As always, we’d love to hear your views and feedback, so leave us a line in the comment box below, or better still, write a review on the Apple site!

New feature: Keyword property search

Here’s a staggering statistic for you – property searches on Zoopla.co.uk were conducted at the rate of one every 0.46 seconds in 2009. With 86,400 seconds in a day, that’s a huge amount of searches taking place across the site on a daily basis.

However, previously for sale and to rent searches on Zoopla.co.uk have predominantly been sorted by location, price, type and number of beds…until now.

From today, you can now search property listings on Zoopla.co.uk by any keyword you want! That’s right, any keyword relevant to you – garage, studio, parking and so on.

After running a location search (in this instance Bedford) the ‘Refine for sale search’ box will appear on the right hand side of the ‘for sale‘ and ‘to rent’ results.

Within this box (see image below) a new field called ‘Keywords’ appears just below ‘Price’. It looks like this (take a look at the image below):

Here’s an example of the search results for properties for sale with a garage in Bedford – 297 results in total to choose from:

 

Results for 'garage' as keyword

 

You can also search for exact phrases by using quotation marks e.g. “double garage”, or to exclude a term you can prefix it with ‘-’ e.g. -studio.
