top 10 real estate websites traffic

What are the top real estate websites by traffic? This information is hard to come by! Most of what you can find online is completely outdated and list websites that no longer exist, and haven’t for years! No longer, read below for the most current 2018 data on top real estate website traffic.

Top Real Estate Websites have Grown in Power

National real estate websites have grown in traffic at an amazing pace and have a huge impact on the national and local real estate markets. Most buyers are not using their local MLS websites or local Realty or real estate agent websites to find properties. Most buyers are looking on these mega sites. So it is important to know which of these sites is truly king and what the pecking order is. For reliable home search results, most Realtors I know recommend Realtor.com or a local search site like the MLS or something a local Realty company or agent has branded – but is still local and extremely accurate. Zillow is the biggest player below, but is not known for having accurate data.

Home Buyers Increasingly Rely on Real Estate Websites
