Whether you're buying, letting, selling, in need of advice or just keeping a keen eye on London's upcoming property hot spots, Time Out finds a number of useful websites to help

  • www.findaproperty.com
    Split into geographical areas, this site features most London agents’ properties for sale and rent. Shortcuts to three-bedroom houses in N22, for instance, are easy to navigate and there are detailed, well-written area overviews and ‘word on the street’ comments from local residents.

    www.fish4homes.co.uk
    A clear, simple to use and huge site that many local press websites use as a search engine for more than 300,000 properties.

    www.home.co.uk
    A recommended home buyer’s guide; featured properties of the week and links to over half a million properties in the country makes this a good place to start your house search.

    www.roombuddies.com
    They have a dedicated page for those looking for flat and house shares in London.


    www.houseladder.co.uk
    If you want to miss out the middle man and sell your house privately, you can advertise it on this site (from £69.99). You can also place it on some of the biggest portals, such as www.propertyfinder.com.

    www.londonpropertynews.co.uk
    Experts on the London property scene, London Property News publishes five magazines on the subject. Links to available properties are not as numerous as at some places, but the site’s easy to navigate.

    www.propertyfinder.com
    Simply type in the price range, how many bedrooms you want, along with the postcode of the area in which you are looking, and this site will find any relevant properties for sale there.

    www.propertyhotspots.net
    A predominantly paid-for site written by Ajay Ahuja and costing £9.97 for the first seven days. A property newsletter in essence, it does what it says on the tin: gives you advice about where to look next for the best bargains, plus advice on property investment.

    www.rightmove.co.uk
    Another website that hooks you up to thousands of available properties, this also features a useful and updated house price index and
    a new tool that lets you search by tube and train station.

    www.tfl.gov.net
    Log on to Transport for London’s website, type 2016 map and download a tube map as it might be in ten years’ time, with tube stops planned for Brockley, Dalston, Haggerston and Woolwich High Street.

    www.upmystreet.com
    A huge website that lets you search for almost anything you might want to know (or not know) about a prospective road, from crime rates to schools and recent sale prices.

There is also now a brand new one literally just launched (Jan 1st 2014) called www.wesellprivately.com for people who are selling or renting privately without an Agent.

Best site for rentals is missing: www.OpenRent.co.uk. No admin fees, and cheap for landlords!
