The January report of real estate websites from Hitwise has just been released and the numbers don’t lie. Yahoo! Real Estate remains in the number one spot even though they actually lost 1.44% of visits shared. That’s a loss of 3.5 million unique visits. FrontDoor Real Estate jumped all the way up to knock Zillow out of the number two slot with just under 6.5% of visits shared, and Zillow’s visits went down .35% to put them at number three. Realtor.com fell to number four, losing .25% in visits, and Trulia slumped to number five, losing .15% of visits. Homes.com holds steady at number six, and actually gained visits, rising from 2.72% of visits shared to 2.82%. That’s a huge increase!
Here are the rest of the rankings for January:
- Yahoo! Real Estate
- FrontDoor Real Estate
- MSN Real Estate
- AOL Real Estate
- Apartment Guide
FrontDoor Real Estate sure came out of nowhere this month, but Homes.com is steadily gaining viewers and making strides to rattle Yahoo!, Zillow, and Realtor.com and climb to the top of the list. Homes.com, FrontDoor Real Estate, and Apartment Guide are the only contenders in this month’s list who actually gained visits, so they’ll definitely be worth watching in February.
