Spring 2008 update of traffic trends for Washington real estate web sites as observed by third party monitors at compete.com. So far this season most sites received about the same number of visits as this time last year. We are VERY pleased that our growth continued to improve in April when others experienced a significant drop.
Washington Only Real Estate Sites:
This data does a good jog of demonstrating the seasonal "post holiday" spike that occurs every January ... followed by a short slump in February before the spring season gets going in late March.
My Crystal Ball:
Compete.com provides about 4 weeks of relative growth data for the month of May. Based on this information it looks like the CB Bain site and our site at www.nwrealty.com will both realize growth compared to the previous month of April. The other sites look like they will hold at about the same rate of vistors.
Reports for May should be available in a couple weeks. Thanks for stopping by!
