Home Search Websites

Home search websites (like Zillow) have changed the real estate industry forever. We create annual reports on which real estate search websites are the best to use for a homebuyer and which ones are the most popular (important to know as a sellers agent). Using the best available home search sites can help buyers make better and more informed choices during their home purchase, and knowing which websites are impacting buyers help our top sellers agents know where to focus additional efforts and promotions, so our client’s homes sell faster and for more.

Top 4 Real Estate Websites: Zillow, Trulia, Yahoo, & Realtor

July 31, 2012

Continuing their dominance, Zillow, Trulia, Yahoo, and Realtor.com round out the top four used real estate websites, according to HitWize.
