A NEW interactive property tool has been launched to compare house values from thousands of British locations with properties around the world.

The microsite has been built by the team at online retailer Web-Blinds.com and can be found at www.web-blinds.com/resources/home-vs-world

The company's Zoe Ashton said: "We Britons tend to be open when discussing what our homes are worth with family, friends and acquaintances. As a result of this, we decided to build this tool in order to help give a little further insight into just how huge the difference in property costs can be; not just across different countries and cities, but even within the same boroughs, villages and towns.”

The site asks users to search for the area in which they live, from a choice of 21,660 UK locations which have all had property values analysed. Visitors are then also given the option to add in the estimated value of their home in order to generate a more personalised property comparison.
