"Property search engine gets funding boost."
Investment vehicle Howzat media has completed its investment in Zoomf, an early stage Web 2.0 residential property sales and letting search engine.
Still in its beta test stage of development, Zoomf plans initially to cover agents offering property in the Greater London Area before rolling out nationally with more product enhancements.
Consumers can drill down to desired property specifications, for location and price range, along with 'deeper' specifications, such as 'with garage/ off-street parking' or 'river view'.
Zoomf also offers consumers local market intelligence and information on local amenities in their area of choice, via map and listings.
These provide users with useful additional information about local schools, transport, shopping and recreational facilities, assisting them in their property search.
