The London property search engine zoomf.com has partnered with word of mouth community site TrustedPlaces to offer local information to property hunters looking to buy or rent property in the London area.

The new partnership will see TrustedPlaces local café’s, pubs, bars and restaurant listings and ratings displayed along side the zoomf.com property for sale and homes to let listings, providing more valuable information to London property hunters.

Users are able to view the local points of interest listings on a map and see where they are located in relation to the available properties in the area. Clicking on a listing shows the current rating and the number of reviews for the listing. For example one can view the local amenities located near the homes for sale in Notting Hill or property to let in Kensington, by using the menu located below the map displaying the properties.

“TrustedPlaces is a natural partner for zoomf.com as their local reviews and recommendations will help our users find great places to live” says Ivailo Jordanov, Product Director at zoomf.com. “For example knowing what the locals think of the nearby restaurants gives you a valuable insight into the neighbourhood of the property you are considering”.

“Zoomf is a new and rapidly growing property search engine that aggregates all the right information for choosing where to live in London in a simple interface for a consumer. With TrustedPlaces all of Zoomf consumers will now be getting that personal touch, that personal recommendation about what is great or not so great about living in a chosen neighbourhood” says Walid Al Saqqaf COO & co-founder of TrustedPlaces.
