Top Real Estate Websites July 2010

Internet exposure being a key element of my marketing plan and I make sure to discuss how I'm going to utilize that during my listing presentations.  I believe in focusing on those sites that consumers go to so it's important to stay current on what those sites are.  Here's the latest rankings of real estate websites (based on the number of visits) as published by Hitwise. 

  1. Realtor.com
  2. Yahoo! Real Estate
  3. Zillow
  4. MSN Real Estate
  5. Trulia
  6. Rent.com
  7. ZipRealty
  8. Homes.com
  9. Apartment Guide
  10. RE/MAX Real Estate
  11. ForRent.com
  12. MyNewPlace
  13. Rentals.com
  14. Apartments.com
  15. AOL Real Estate
  16. Redfin
  17. Century 21 Real Estate
  18. HomeAway
  19. LoopNet
  20. US HUD
 

All are not be appropriate for residential sales since the focus of some of these sites is rentals and one (LoopNet) is primarily known for commercial real estate.

With syndication, posting a listing on a few sites can multiply to a hundred or more.  Syndication brings with it a number of issues that have been thoroughly discussed by Bart Wilson here on ActiveRain.

Hi Gabrielle,

Yes indeed, you're up there.  I've seen Keller Williams up there too but not in July.  Best wishes!

Richard some of the names I expected to see were missing.  I wonder what the list will look like the next time?

Hi Jennifer.  I think Homes.com and Realtor.com share #1 as some sort of partnership.

Richard, where do you find this list? It is interesting to see that Realtor.com still holds the #1 position because I have heard so many rumblings about them. So do they combine the stats for Homes.com to come up with the #1 spot? That hardly seems fair...

Hi Frank & Sharon.  If you go to homes.com, it appears that they default to Realtor.com for home searching.  Google gave me the link to the stats but I'd be hard pressed to find it again.

Aloha & best wishes!
