    What are people doing now that upmystreet.co.uk is no more?

    Peter

    You've developed a great site; I love the data visualisation - congratulations! I've added a link in our 'Socio-economic' section, hope that's okay with you.

    It'd be great if other Property-Tribers could make some suggestions for more sites to be added.

    Streetcheck is a really good, neatly-designed resource with a stack of good information. We already have a link to it under our "Socio-economic information" section on postocdr.com.

    We may be able to fill some of the void left by Upmystreet.

    The free to download Real Hub mobile app processes million of pieces of data on the UK housing market and maps the results into an easy to understand colour coded granular format to full postcode level for anywhere in the UK.

    Datasets include our unique residential property market specific demographic segmentation (11 segments including students, renting commuters, first step on the ladder etc), property prices, crime rates and key points of interest.

    An ideal reference tool when looking to invest in unfamiliar locations. Search via an address or 'on the ground' via your GPS location. Have a browse : find us on the iTunes App Store or google "Real Hub UK" for our webpage... It's our probation period on the Property Tribes forum!

    Please let us know what you think.

    Welcome to Property Tribes.

    I've had a look at your website and it looks very impressive.

    I look forward to learning more about your app and application for landlords.

    Morning Vanessa,

    Thank you for the warm welcome!

    If you look on the 'About us & our data' and the 'Who are we for?' pages of our site we outline how our free app will benefit landlords. We have also written a blog specifically for landlords in the blog section.

    Our demographic segmentation allows landlords to identify where their target markets are clustered anywhere in the UK. For example, a landlord looking to invest in student property can immediately identify where the main student neighbourhoods are in any UK market place. Our colour coded data visualisation on property prices, crime and points of interest also gives them concise and easy to understand market information at their fingertips.

    This is just our first version, we are working on additional Datasets and app features that will be released in the near future. Our Android version is in testing and will be on the App Store in the next week or so.

    Hi.

    I thought some of you that have posted your business details may like feedback from a regular woman in the street. I'm not a property owner, I'm a renter, and I'm looking to move having lived in my current home for twelve years. It came as something of a shock when I searched for Up My Street and found that it was no longer there!

    I Googled what are people using since Up My Street has gone, and it brought me to this site. Although there is nothing that is currently a direct comparison for Up My Street, I can tell you that my three favourites are checkmyfile (postcode check), findahood and streetcheck. Although not completely accurate with information, it is worthwhile, particularly when cross referenced with Police UK.

    I have bookmarked these three sites, and I will be referring back to them over the coming months as I try to find a new home. I will also give them a reference on my social networking sites to try to direct some more traffic to them.

    Thank you.

    Hi "Looking for a New Home" - a warm welcome to Property Tribes!

    You've picked out three great sites there and they're certainly going to help you make an informed decision about your next home move.

    You might also want to have a look at postcodr.com

    If you're likely to be doing a lot of searching you might get a bit fed up of constantly entering your search terms in all of these sites. I know I did and that's why I developed postcodr.com.

    You can search by area, postcode or just by clicking on the map. The app will then give you preconfigured links to over 50 sites, like the ones you've mentioned, so you can click and go straight to the site with the search term already taken care of for you.

    All this happens in a single window of your browser so there's no jumping from tab-to-tab. And, you can save your favourite areas and links so they appear at the top of the list for easy access.

    I'd be really interested to hear your feedback.

    Good luck with your home search!


    Regards
    Dave

    Hi Dave, is your postcodr.com site still in existence in any format online? I remember coming across it a couple of years back and being very interested in it, but I can't now find it in its previous guise.

    Thanks,

    Melissa
