Time Out London has worked alongside Rightmove to launch a new property search tool.
Time Out and Rightmove Launch New London Property Search Tool
The Where Should I Live in London? tool suggests postcodes to live in, either to rent or buy, according to the user’s preferences and location.
Users are asked how many bedrooms they require, their budget, which postcode they work in and personal preferences, such as green space, restaurants and shops, nightlife and culture.
The tool allows users to prioritise which features are the most important to them. It then comes up with ten possible areas to consider.
The search combines Time Out’s knowledge with Rightmove’s data.
It also uses geographic data to calculate average work commute times and uses Uber’s API to estimate journey times to the West End.
International Creative Director at Time Out, Adam Harris, explains: “We wanted to find a way to stand out in an already saturated market.
“The result is a one-of-a-kind tool that combines Rightmove’s unrivalled database of properties around the capital with Time Out’s expertise, so we can enable our audience’s home lives as well as their social ones.”1
Rightmove’s Head of Marketing, Iain Kennedy, adds: “We know that choosing a new home is about so much more than square footage and asking price. It’s also about finding a place that you can imagine yourself being happy in and an area that suits your needs.”1
