Make the most of Rightmove

RMRightmove are in the top 10 most searched sites in the UK – and it’s not just because of the amount of properties we have, it’s also because of the number of ways you can search for properties! So, in case there are any tools you haven’t spotted yet, here’s a quick overview!


Use our map tool to outline your preferred area – you can add in schools, parks, transportation links – or even your local pub! Alongside your original specifications on price, room numbers etc., you can save this search so we can tell you when a property that fits your needs comes onto the market.

Instant Alerts

Find it first with instant alerts! Sign up for a free account to save your draw-a-search areas, other searches by area, price and requirements, and we’ll send you an email alert as soon as a relevant property hits Rightmove.

School Checker

Find the right home near the right school. Rightmove’s School Checker, found on each property listing, shows you where attending pupils live and provides easy access to inspection report data for around 30,000 schools.

Mortgage timeline

Thinking of buying a home? Make sure you know what to expect by checking out our Mortgage Timeline to map your journey from searching on Rightmove to keys in hand (so you can forget worrying about the little bits and focus on all the fun stuff – like buying half of Ikea!)


Keep an eye on how house prices have changed over time with our House Price Trendometers. Access our 15 years’ worth of data in a handy interactive tool to see how areas around the country, and in more detail around London, have changed over time.


Check out our variety of calculators on the website to help you plan for mortgages, property affordability, Help to Buy and buy to let etc. You can also see our mortgage repayment calculators on each property listing to help you get an idea of whether this home is affordable for you.

Valuation Tool

Thinking of selling your home? Enter details into our property valuation tool and pick which local agents you’d like to get in touch to help you plan your next steps.

Sold Prices

Doing a little research about what homes in your current or new area sold for? Have a look in this area to access information on homes which have previously been on the market.

Happy at Home

Every year, we conduct a survey to determine the happiest place to live in the UK. Take a look at our Happy at Home Index to see where your home ranks and take a journey around the country to see how everyone else compared.

Apps – search on the go

We don’t want to limit when you can be searching for your next home so download our any of our apps – iPhone, Android, iPad, Windows and Kindle now – click here to see what we offer on which platform.


When you’re moving house, finding a local removal company is just another thing to do. So use our removals area to find trusted companies in your area, then tick that off your list!

Tube Map and Commuter Tool

Searching for a home in London? Why not search by proximity to an Underground station with our tube map. And, use our commute add-on tool to see the proposed commute time and method per property as you scroll through our listings page – so you know the score before you commit to the property!

What else do we do?

Did you know that we don’t just show you homes to buy and rent? We also advertise commercial properties, students, investors and overseas.

Let us help you find your next property in whichever way is easiest for you. Check out our variety of tools today!
