    number of houses on a road?

    Hi Guys,

    Have been looking on the forum but cannot find an answer. have also been trying map point for 3 hours.

    Can anyone tell me how I find out how many houses are on a road?

    At the moment I click at the beginning of the road and the end of the road so it gives me roughly.

    Any ideas please?

    Regards
    Jason

    This cannot be done directly within MapPoint, but you can right-click on the map and click on "Show in Bing Maps". Then switch to the aerial image or bird's eye view and count the homes.

    It's not going to be perfect where there are a lot of multi-family units of course, but you can get a rough idea. You might also try to switch to Street View to count mailboxes, etc.

    OK Eric, no problem. What I do at the moment is use mouseprice. I will carry on using this. Thanks for replying

    Oh I see, that is specifically for the UK? I was also going to mention Zillow but I don't think it covers the UK.

    Besides the one you mentioned, here are some others

    UK house prices, property, crime, local neighbourhood & schools | UpMyStreet
    Free UK Sold House Prices - Nethouseprices.com
    Search Property for Sale, To Buy, Rent, House Prices, Estate Agents

    Have you heard of them? How do they compare for your purposes?

    Thanks Eric,

    Yes I have tried these, mouseprice seems to be the easiest as you click on road and it tells you...will take a while to create a database but hopefully I can link this to mappoint through excel! cheers
