What is Homesearch Explorer?

We created Homesearch Explorer as a tool for searching for property on a larger scale than a single house - by criteria rather than just an address. It’s an alternative ‘gateway’ into all the comprehensive information we have on the UK’s 28-plus-million residential properties.

How does Explorer work?

With Explorer, you can search by address, street, district, sector or postcode. Using the 50+ filter options, you can then fine-tune specific property types, sizes, values and by planning keyword searches; each of these criteria have further filtering options. If you don’t find what you need, simply hit the ‘Filter’ icon, alter your filters and re-run a new search. Every Explorer search returns a map and list view for you to research and explore the area at-a-glance but then drill down into individual property details. Each property is a clickable link, initially giving summary details, after which - with a single click - you can run a full Homesearch for the ultimate intelligence on the chosen property, including detailed people demographics, sales charts and then produce a Sales Market Report, to name a few.

Explorer in more detail

Once you have run an Explorer search, the map view - which you may need to zoom in to see the individual properties with the HM Land Registry title outlines plotted over the top. Each will have a Homesearch Property Icon atop. The default view is property type, but the blue buttons at the bottom of the map give at-a-glance metrics on each property at the click of your mouse.

Simply click on the icon to be presented with a new pop-up giving summary detail, Google Street View and Planning information, plus options for a full Homesearch on that property.
