Homes.com Finishes Out 2012 Holding Strong


The top five real estate listing websites concluded the year with no movement in rankings, but Homes.com was the only one to see an increase in visits. In December, Homes.com saw a growth of over 5% in visits share, topping out at over 11.3 million visits — definitely finishing out the year strong! Though Trulia, Realtor.com, and Yahoo! Homes are slightly ahead in the ranks, they all saw a significant decrease last month. This bodes well for the always-growing Homes.com.


Here’s how the rest of the top ten real estate websites stacked up against each other in December 2012:

  1. Zillow
  2. Trulia
  3. Realtor.com
  4. Yahoo! Homes
  5. Homes.com
  6. MSN Real Estate
  7. Rent.com
  8. AOL Real Estate
  9. MyNewPlace (November: ZipRealty)
  10. Apartment Guide

MyNewPlace had an interesting end of the year boost, seeing a 10% increase in visits, which knocked ZipRealty out of the top ten. Apart from that, however, the rest of the top ten remains unchanged in the ranks. With Homes.com’s growing popularity at the end of 2012, we can expect big things for the year ahead.
