I know property bee doesn't (yet) work on the new ESPC site, but looks like it's stopped working on the old one too - or is it just me?

Looks like it's still working fine for me on the old site, might just be you.

Not working for me on old site either. How do you know when it should work for the new one ? And does anyone have any idea of previous stats will be copied over ?

I like the street view option. It also seems my usual search picks up more places than it used to ? Has the search function been updated ?

Property Bee does not seem to be working yet either.

Is it worth me putting a comment on their chat forum about it ?

I just put a thread into the PB forum yesterday. Hopefully it'll be sorted soon - until then I'm not even that interested in scouring ESPC.
Apart from that issue, the new ESPC site is great - really good search functionality. Haven't found anything I didn't like about it yet, but haven't used it much because of the PB issue.

As revamps go, it's infinitely better than what they've done at the Scotsman.

Apologies for the misleading info, I only got the old site when I tried on the 1st Nov.
I hope it's an easy fix for the PB team.

I've raised bug report #206 to get this fixed in the next version.

I think it's excellent. The overhaul leapfrogs rightmove is user experience, and it's night and day vs the old espc site: it's soooo much better at drilling down to specific kinds of properties in specific areas with enough overlap/fuzziness to reassure you that you're catching listings on the fringe of your search criteria.

Well done.

Thanks for the feedback. If there is anything you think is missing...let us know. The site has been overhauled in-house so we can change things.

Yes it has. Previously each property was allocated to one district. So for example, a property had to be defined against Warriston or Trinity. The new site allows these boundaries to merge as districts are not defined exactly and a property can be under multiple districts within reason (we plotted all the districts based on 10 years of data and tried to remove any strange outliers)

Anyone know how to include SSTC results when searching in ESPC?

Beerhunter comes up trumps again - received a mail advising that there is a fix out for this issue. Haven't tried it yet, but will do soon:
