Michael Bruce, Group CEO and Founder of Boomin commented: “At Boomin, we want to empower our customers to ‘get there first’ and find what really is their dream home.

"A huge aspect of this is finding the right area to live in before things get too competitive, so we wanted to go beyond just house price increases as an indicator of how ‘sought after’ an area is, and look at what the modern home owner really wants.

"Taking into account everything from proximity to schools and crime rates, to how many restaurant options there are in the area, has allowed us to shine a light on the places people might not have been considering, but could be just what they’re looking for".
