Buyers have taken to the internet in droves to search out a suitable property. We feel that this area of the internet is still in its infancy but it is getting better especially with the introduction of Google Maps. We've listed a few of the major ones here for you:

home.co.uk

A good property search engine, user friendly.

home.co.uk

propertysnake.co.uk

Put in your postcode and see houses that have reduced their prices in your area. Even keeps a history of price reductions...sure to get busier in the run up to the crash!

propertysnake.co.uk

firsttimebuys.co.uk

This website asks you for your earnings, deposit amount and where you want to buy then shows you houses that you can afford with an estimated mortgage aswell!

firsttimebuys.co.uk

rightmove.co.uk

Rightmove is the biggest property search website but it's functionity is rather poor and definitely needs updating.

rightmove.co.uk

findaproperty.com

Nice to see that this site has been given a makeover. Long overdue but much better now.

homes24.co.uk

Nice visual Google map search.

homes24.co.uk

globrix.com

A true property search engine where every property is listed and paid listings are not allowed.

globrix.com

zoopla.co.uk

Search by map, see all the properties and hover over each one to see the details.

zoopla.co.uk

vebra.com

A bit of a clunky site in our opinion that needs a usability review but it lets you search for properties and setup email alerts.
