The Most Popular Real Estate Websites

Peter Coy

Here are the 20 most popular real estate websites as ranked by Hitwise, which tracks the number of visitors each site gets based on a sample of 10 million Internet users.

realtor.com

realtytrac.com

homegain.com

rent.com

remax.com

realestate.yahoo.com

zillow.com

apartments.com

ziprealty.com

move.com

century21.com

homes.com

servicemagic.com

forrent.com

hud.gov

housevalues.com

realestate.msn.com

coldwellbanker.com

apartmentguide.com

foreclosurestore.com

Realtor.com, the official site of the National Association of Realtors, is far and away No. 1, with 8.8% market share vs. 3.7% for second-place realtytrac.com.

Somehow Hot Property didn't crack the Top 20. That's OK. Our audience is small but elite. Right, guys?

This is a great list for real estate in general. Has someone created a list for the best sites for 2nd home-owners? or vacation home owners that rent?

Regards,

Mike

HomeGain consistently draws more visitors to its site than Zillow.

HomeGain has an instant homevaluation tool-created SEVEN years ago!
