How can I search for properties using Map search/view?

When searching for properties, you can make use of our map experiences to narrow down your search results, to help you find the best property.

   Desktop     Mobile

Creating a Draw a map search using Zoopla SmartMaps means that you can include areas that would otherwise be excluded from a standard circumference search, specifying your own boundaries of where exactly you want to live.  You can also include multiple areas within one search.  

  1. Go to
  2. Hover over the correct department in the website navigation (For sale, To rent)
  3. Click Draw a map search 
  4. Type in your postcode, area or town
  5. Click the relevant radial button to define the department (For sale, To rent, New homes)
  6. Click Define my area


  7. Click Filter results to define the Property type, Features, their Status, or add any Keywords
  8. You can edit the current area (highlighted in purple) by clicking Edit area
  9. Multiple areas can be added into the same map search by clicking Add area 
  10. The default area is a circle but your own area, avoiding certain streets for example, can be drawn if you click on Draw from scratch
  11. You can also choose to show the nearest amenities within the search

Your map searches will be saved within the Alerts and searches section of your My Zoopla account.  


Draw a map search can only be used on the Zoopla website, via a desktop device (not the app)
