We provide honest details about the local area for you to make an informed decision before moving, buying, or renting
Purchasing a home is one of the most significant decisions most people will make in their lives
We believe that picking the right location is key to a successful home purchase: get it wrong and you will either be unhappy with where you live or face the costs of moving again.
We pride ourselves on our integrity and the quality of the work we do
Crystal Roof provides information specific to property and its immediate surroundings within a given postcode, rather than looking at general trends in a larger area.
All the information we provide is ethically sourced from official unbiased sources. Where data is not available, we provide the information via highly accurate modelling based on the available official data.
We have designed Crystal Roof to be as accessible and straightforward as possible with a user-friendly interface while still providing the quality of information you need to be informed.
In 2016, Victoria and Vlad made the huge decision to relocate to London.
As you know, London is a pretty big place and finding the right spot proved challenging…
They went on their search with an open mind, but like most of us, they didn't know much about how the real estate industry worked and how it was so focused on Landlords and Investors.
They were new to the city and didn't have any special local knowledge about the many residential areas of Greater London. They did not understand the different properties and the many potential 'warning signs' you need to be aware of when viewing!
Despite their open minds and willingness to find a place to call home, they ended up being unhappy and unsuccessful in their search. They had to move on four separate occasions until they eventually found somewhere right for them.
Your home should be your sanctuary. The place where you feel safe, comfortable, and can decompress after the stresses of daily life, but as they discovered, this is not always the case.
Every time they thought they found the right property for them, an issue made the residence unlivable.Whether it was:
Something wasn't right.
If they'd had access to the information they needed, they would have been able to save nearly 30 hours of wasted time viewing unsuitable properties.
And if that wasn't enough, they had to face the excessive moving costs and, on occasions, had to pay the rent for both the old and new property due to minimal tenancy restrictions!
A nightmare scenario for anyone.
The romantic vision of a move to London was quickly fading. It was becoming obvious that simply renting a property in London was an enormous commitment… let alone buying somewhere!
Why was there a secret club of people 'in the know' when everyone else was simply expected to figure it out for themselves?
That's when they decided enough was enough!
They set about creating a platform designed to help people understand UK's local areas and empower them to make better decisions by making ALL the information readily available.
With this platform, they hope to level the playing field by providing crucial facts and data you need to make an informed decision before you commit to buying or renting in the capital.
Get the facts. Be empowered. Make the decision that's right for you.
