Latest Episodes

The UK cities with the biggest house price growth

On today's Smarter Property Podcast we go from house-hunting inspiration to cutting credit card costs after summer spending to helping students who are first-time renters. We kick off (4min 20sec) with Annabel looking at which cities are seeing the biggest house price growth, according to the latest data from Zoopla partners Hometrack. Our personal finance expert Rory then tackles credit card debt (8min) and explains why the summer can be a costly time if you're not on the ball. Next up, Kat joins in to take us through the top 10 most popular properties on Zoopla in August (19min 15sec), before we close with Annabel's seven-point guide for students renting at college or university (27min 15sec). We really value your feedback, so if there are any topics you would like us to cover in future episodes, then let us know by simply sending a quick email to editor@zoopla.co.uk

The UK cities with the biggest house price growth

First-time buyer schemes made simple & stopping broadbandits

Back for a third episode of the Smarter Property Podcast, and first-up Annabel, Rory and Tim help first-time buyers decide where to turn when it comes to building that all-important deposit - including specialist schemes offering 25% bonus rates. We then move on to a longstanding broadband rip-off (16min 55sec), where internet providers are failing to tell customers when their contracts are coming to an end and then hiking prices by as much as 62%. Finally (24min 40sec), we look at what the average price of a property - PS309,000 - will get you around the UK, and Annabel's selection of properties on Zoopla underlines just how far your pound will go in different regions. We really value your feedback, so if there are any topics you would like us to cover in future episodes, then let us know by simply sending a quick email to editor@zoopla.co.uk

First-time buyer schemes made simple & stopping broadbandits

Homes for under PS10k & cut your energy bill by up to PS500

It's another energy-fuelled episode and given there have been 30 prices hikes this summer, we kick off by providing a straightforward way for you to save up to PS500 on your gas and electric bills. Annabel (11mins 30sec) then explains how you can find a new home on Zoopla for under PS10,000 and offers seven quirky examples including a dovecote and converted chapel. Finally, Kat joins us (16mins 45sec) to provide the golden rules for buying a fixer-upper property and turning it into a palace.

Introducing the new Smarter Property Podcast

The new Smarter Property Podcast is here to help you make better decisions whether you're looking to buy or rent, in the process of moving, or already living in your dream home. Bringing you easy-to-follow practical advice to save time and money, we're combining the property experience of the Zoopla team with the expertise on energy, banking, broadband and insurance from our partners at uSwitch. In this first episode we cover three main areas: 1:13: Interest rates have risen to their highest level for nine years and owning a home has just become more expensive. What can you do to keep down costs? 10:00: Being a buy-to-let landlord can provide a steady income, but don't fall foul of the regulations. Here's what you need to know. 19:45: How to stay cool in a heatwave with nine sensible, innovative and occasionally outlandish ways to keep your home chilled when the temperature hots up. We welcome all feedback to improve the show, so please email editor@zoopla.co.uk
