Boston Condos for Sale and Apartments for Rent


The Nations Top Visited Real Estate Websites

In the today’s high tech world, condominiums and single-family homes for sale are found online. Nearly every home in the country is sold as a result of online home search traffic, website like Zillow, or searching their local online MLS system. I’ve been tracking these trends year by year since 1998.

It is very important for me to know which websites are gaining market share, and which are loosing. I need to know which websites have the greatest impact in a client’s home sale, and which aren’t likely to move the needle. Thankfully, our local MLS systems broadcast out where we need to be, which is a good start, but it doesn’t tell me which sites are worth paying special attention to, and potentially spending more money with, in order to boost our clients’ homes presence online, to help them sell their Boston condo for sale faster and for more money..

Despite Redfin’s growth and’s significant user base, Zillow still outranks their combined traffic, and the combined traffic of the rest of the top four put together. (Zillow also owns and since purchasing the website has stopped its growth.)

Biggest Real Estate Websites Winners and Losers

The Keller Williams search site, fell from top rankings in 2019. In 2018 was a top ten visited real estate website. Despite Keller Williams supposed commitment to technology, their primary home search portal has dismal traffic, especially considering the size and wealth of the company behind it. also used to be a top ten real estate website and has similarly fallen over the last five years or so. used to be a significant public home search portal and has lost perhaps 80% of its traffic since 2018. was one of the fastest rising websites in the last few years, but recently has plateaued and isn’t showing any recent growth. The website gained most of its traffic by partnering with local MLS systems, some of which have since stopped using its services. It is hard to say where will go from here.
