It’s been a long time since I’ve talked technical here on Activerain, but some of us Rainers are actually more focused on real estate technology rather than house viewings on a day to day basis. If you're one of those people you may find the following post interesting. Written by my colleague Ric...
Sounds like the name of the latest summer blockbuster, I envisage Zoomf being some sort of crazy alien that Sigourney Weaver spends 90 minutes trying to decapitate. But it’s not a movie, it’s just me announcing the latest redesign here at Zoomf towers. For those of you who just know me as 'that g...
Today is a big day in the United Kingdom. Today is the day the Chancellor of the Exchequer reveals the Budget. Part of me feels like the only reason I started studying Economics was because one day I wanted to be the girl who held up that dashing red briefcase. Now, not so much. Who wants a handb...

Who remembers the year 2000? We approached it with such trepidation, terrified every computer in the country would become infested by the ‘millennium bug’. Well, back then there were 322 streets in the UK where the average property fetched in excess of a million pounds. Today, you would expect th...
UK property ‘news' of late has seemed, to me at least, to be a little lacklustre on the ‘news' front. Most stories being a confirmation of house prices going down from another lender, survey or what have you. But there have been some interesting tales dotted around...We all know the story on the ...
In the good old days, you could let your children play outside all evening, you’d dress up (and save up) to go to the cinema, Pluto was a planet and curry came in one flavour and was bought in a can. But times change and as it’s only penny sweets that seem immune to inflation, it is unsurprising ...
