The Property118 research team were kept incredibly busy over the first few months of 2012 analysing literally thousands of websites which offer services to landlords and property professionals. The results will were promoted in our eNewsletters (weekly distribution > 500,000) for the benefit of our subscribers and were Search Engine Optimised to appear in Google searches.

The starting point for this exciting endeavour was the 275,000+ businesses listed in our Property Services Directory. With this being such a large number and our readers generally preferring to deal with local businesses we decided to break the awards down to Counties as opposed to giving only one National award.

There was no entry fee, no expensive awards ceremony to attend and no price for winners to pay for displaying our awards logo on their website. Unlike other awards we were not be influenced by advertising revenue, simply the quality of the websites we reviewed.

We judged websites offering the products and services in the following sectors /professions, all of which are used regularly by landlords and property professionals:-

  • Accountants
  • Commercial Finance Brokers
  • Electrical and PAT testing
  • Gas & Heating Engineers
  • Letting Agents
  • Mortgage / Finance Brokers
  • Plumbers
  • Solicitors

Judging decisions were be based upon a combination of powerful analysis algorythms and human experience including the following:-

Website Popularity – calculated using a combination of average daily visitors, average time on site and average page views per user visit.

Links – the number of other websites linking in to content or functions such as quotations or bookings

Contact – we short-listed three businesses in each profession and County and a member of our team endeavoured to speak with each short-listed business prior to the final decision being made.

To find the winners in your County simple Google search “Property118 website awards 2012” followed by your county, e.g. Property118 website awards 2012 West Midlands

If there is a business which you think is worthy of our consideration for future awards please email

Hi Jonathan

We don't have an Awards category for property auctions but I have taken a look at your website and it's an interesting concept. I see you won an Award from Landlord and Letting Maganine, well done for that achievement.

I will ring you later today as I'd like to introduce you to Paul Fieldson from 

If you Google search "Online Property Auction Services" the first article you will find is a transcript of an interview I did with Paul Fieldson last March.
