Is there a website that shows how long a property has been on the market for?

Download property bee and use it on Rightmove. You can only use it on Firefox but it will show you the complete history of the listing and any changes in asking prices and descriptions.

Thanks AKiss, I knew I'd read about something like that.

You can also use which also shows the history of the asking price.

Right, I'm off to check. I'm hoping its been on for ages... Or at least long enough for the owners to be keen to negotiate a bit.

Zoopla lists the date the property went on the market, as well as the last sold price, on the left hand side of the screen of any property you click on. It saves trawling the web for the info so makes it a much quicker process. Good luck!

try - that will tell you how long it has been on for & if it has had a price reduction.

Some EAs are wise to Property Bee etc nowadays and periodically delist and relist all their properties. If you want to be sure I suggest checking across Property Bee, Property Snake and Zoopla. At different times I've found one or the other has a picture going back further in time.

Also, I've found that if you look at the EPC for the property (the full energy document, which is often listed with the details), along with the full address of the property, etc., at the top, it also has a date. People only tend to get them done when they're putting the house on sale, so it should give you a very good idea.
