New property search engine Zoomf has linked up with community review site TrustedPlaces to offer local information alongside its property listings.

TrustedPlaces’s reviews of local cafes, bars and restaurants will be used by Zoomf to provide background information to property hunters.

Co-founder of TrustedPlaces Walid Al Saqqaf said:

“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.”

Using Google Maps, Zoomf will display information on local bars and shops and other places of interest alongside its property listings.

Zoomf, which plans to officially launch in early 2007, currently covers London but aims to expand its property listings to the rest of the UK and abroad.
