Primemove adds sold prices to its database

Househunters now have unlimited access to the details of properties that have been sold across the UK in the last 12 months when searching for a property on primemove.com.

Consumers can make comparative price checks, using the official Land Registry sold figures, to ensure the house they are buying or selling is correctly valued.

They can also assess how much properties have increased in price in specific areas.

By clicking on the ‘sold’ option on the primemove.com homepage, visitors will be directed to the map based database where they will be able to search for properties that have been sold in the past year by post code, road, village or town.

It is important for buyers and sellers to have the most up-to-date market information to hand, as competition for the best value properties remains fierce, and gazumping is on the rise.

Buyers will be able to check they are not paying over the odds for their property, and sellers will have the advantage of knowing the average sold prices of similar properties within the area.

Henry Pryor, founder of primemove.com, says: “With the latest addition of the sold data from Land Registry, primemove.com is offering a one-stop shop for anyone looking to buy or rent a house.

“Most people now start their search for property online, and these latest progressions consolidate primemove.com as the UK’s most comprehensive property website, and the only place to start your search.”
