Leading property search and information website Zoopla.co.uk [http://www.zoopla.co.uk ] has launched unique heatmaps which show the average current value of homes across the UK in a clear and easy to visualise format.

The new heatmaps can be found on all maps across the Zoopla website and may be viewed at varying zoom levels include down to individual postcodes. In addition to the new heatmaps [http://www.zoopla.co.uk/heatmaps ], Zoopla has also added a variety of other valuable local property information that provides an essential research tool for potential house hunters. Located on the 'market overview' pages of Zoopla.co.uk these newly launched stats include, for any geographic area, the number of properties on the market and average asking prices, the average size of properties in the area as well as the average price per square foot and much more.

Alex Chesterman, Founder & CEO of Zoopla.co.uk said, "The addition of heatmaps to our site allows users to easily visualise the relative house prices [http://www.zoopla.co.uk/house-prices ] in any area of the country. Together with the unique market data we are now making available, this is all part of our mission to empower users with the information they need to make the right property decisions and to become the most useful property resource in the UK."
