History - Rightmove AVM
Rightmove is best known for our website - Rightmove.co.uk - the UK's number one property website, which was first launched by Connells, Countrywide Assured Group, Halifax and Royal & Sun Alliance in 2000.
As the website grew we started to provide comparable products to our members to assist them with valuing property. It has therefore been a natural progression for us to develop other products for other property professionals and as a result we were ideally placed to develop an AVM.
Initial investigation into AVMs began in the summer of 2004 with development commencing in 2005, and after a period of intense research and development, the finished product was commercially launched in January 2007.
Throughout our research and development we worked with our original surveying partners; Connells Survey & Vauation and Countrywide Surveyors, who continue to support us through long term agreements to supply us with their data from physical inspections. This relationship, along with HM Land Registry data and Rightmove data, is invaluable to ensure that the Rightmove AVM is as up to date and accurate as possible.
