I have used propertylive to look at properties in a couple of areas and have found very little or none on those areas even though I know there are houses for sale and estate agents in that area. Also I have found their search engine very limiting as you have to specify how many bedrooms you want. So if you want 3, you have to put 3. It will find all the three bedroomed houses but thats it, it won't find any 4+ bedroomed houses in your specified criteriea. This might be Ok for some others, but if I could get a house with more bedrooms I'd like to know about it. All in all, its worth a look, but don't limit yourself just to this site as its a bit limited
Property Live is a lovely orange site with easy to use navigation for buying a home, selling a home, commercial properties, and businesses for sale. A good all round site which enables homebuyers to search different areas by town or postal code. You can state a distance from this area and also the number of bedrooms etc you require along with your maximum and minumum price. The results are then brought up on the screen and you can click on a property for more information.
