The September Hitwise report has just been released and with it comes good news for Homes.com. Although there has been a slight decrease in visits share, Homes.com remains the fifth real estate website! Even though Realtor.com is ahead by one position, it saw a much more dramatic decrease of visits share of 6.5%. If that trend continues, Homes.com will easily be able to gain that ground. Yahoo! jumped up a notch, presumably because of their recent name and content change.
Here’s how the rest of the top ten real estate websites lined up in last month:
- Yahoo! Homes (August: Realtor.com)
- Realtor.com (Yahoo! Homes)
- AOL Real Estate
- FrontDoor Real Estate (August: MSN Real Estate)
- MSN Real Estate (August: Rent.com)
- Rent.com (August: Apartment Guide)
- Apartment Guide (August: Apartments.com)
As you can see, the top ten real estate websites tend to do a bit of shuffling around each month, but they never stray far from their familiar spaces. Homes.com’s steady position at number five could change this month however, with the release of October’s “Show Us Your Spooky Spaces” photo contest. We’ll just have to wait and see!
