Zoopla.co.uk launches game-changing property iPhone app
- Includes instant value estimates of all 27 million UK homes -
19th July 2010
Leading property website Zoopla.co.uk has today launched the UK's most comprehensive iPhone app for property consumers. The free app has been designed as the ultimate resource for the residential property market allowing users to view available property listings as well as sold price data, current value estimates and other local market information.
As a first for the UK property market, the Zoopla.co.uk app makes use of Augmented Reality technology, displaying images of any property along with any relevant information such as the current asking price or current value estimate via the camera view.
With almost half a million properties listed for sale or rent, over 15 million sold house prices displayed and instant value estimates on each of the 27 million homes in the country, the new Zoopla.co.uk iPhone app is being welcomed by property addicts and nosey neighbours alike.
This new mobile app is likely to prove an essential tool for house hunters on the move as an extension of the enormously popular Zoopla.co.uk website. By combining free, instant value estimates for every UK home with sold prices, local market information and hundreds of thousands of properties available for sale and to rent, the app will be a very useful destination for property consumers to both search for property and do their market research.
Key features of the Zoopla.co.uk iPhone app include
- Free, instant value estimates for all 27 million UK homes
- Over 15 million house prices paid dating back to 1995
- Local market data including average home values by area

Alex Chesterman, Founder and CEO of Zoopla.co.uk said, "Much like the Zoopla.co.uk website, our iPhone app provides consumers with the information they need to make better-informed property decisions. As well as listing properties available to buy or rent, we provide useful information to help users make sense of the residential property market. And now our services will be easily and readily accessible whilst 'on location' via the new mobile app."
