When people are moving they need all the local information they can get to help in the search for the perfect home. So its good to hear about Locrating, which offers website plugins covering schools, transport and amenities. The plugins are easily integrated to any website in minutes and appear seamlessly alongside other content.

The most popular is their schools plugin; which, since 2010 has been running on hundreds of websites, trusted by some of the largest estate agencies.

The plugin is an intuitive map, placed on a property details page that displays all schools (state and independent) and nurseries in the area. A wealth of comprehensive, up to date information is available; such as catchment area indicators, oversubscription status, Ofsted reports, exam results, pupil progress measures, parent reviews, and more. It is one of, if not the, most comprehensive source of information available on UK schools.

Other plugins include local public transport and amenities; such as bars, restaurants, local attractions, supermarkets etc.

When asked questions from potential buyers about the local education available, the agent will have accurate and expert knowledge easily to hand; without the need to trawl numerous sources of information comparing the performance of local schools or their latest Ofsted ratings.

The most popular is the schools plugin; which, since 2010 has been used by some of the largest estate agencies.

The plugin does all the hard work, automatically showing everything in a clear and intuitive manner on the agent’s own website.

Included are over 30,000 state and independent, primary and secondary schools and 28,000 English nurseries as well as almost half a million points of interest, all regularly updated.

Having expert and up to date schools information, via the plugin, both online and to hand, helps agents stand out from the crowd and gain those valuable instructions.

Clients have said that since integrating the plugins they have noticed significant increases in the time visitors spend on their websites, as well as receiving lots of positive feedback in general, which is likely to have a positive effect on their Google search rankings and perception of their business.
