Use drop down boxes to set where you want to be – close to work, school family; how far you want to travel to get to that place by car, walking or using public transport.
Then select either house, flat or bungalow, how many bedrooms you need and your maximum budget.
So where can I live?
Rightmove found me 10 areas where I could get to BlueDoor in under 30 minutes by car, a house with three bedrooms and under £280,000.
The first was Woolston which is great because that’s where I currently live! Today there are 65 properties meeting my criteria.
The second was a huge area covering Lordshill, Lordswood and Bassett where there are 55 matching properties
Third was the small area of Portswood where there are only 10 matches
In reality, I could live anywhere in Southampton for this budget and not spend more than 30 minutes driving to work in good traffic.
