Zoopla was originally founded in 2007 by Alex Chesterman and Simon Kain in London. A year later, the Zoopla website launched, and in 2009, Zoopla also acquired the PropertyFinder Group. Together the companies had a combined annual income of £7 million.
In 2011, Zoopla went on to acquire a historical database of UK house prices which was to help their business significantly. 2012 saw all of the groups be merged into what is known today as the ZPG (Zoopla Property Group).
