I Am The Agent clients are guaranteed the maximum amount of coverage for their property with marketing on Rightmove, the UK’s number one property portal and one of the nation’s most visited websites. The Experian Hitwise weekly ranking system, which lists the UK’s busiest websites, found that Rightmove’s post-Christmas figures helped to drive record numbers of property seekers towards the site; 1.7 billion views were recorded within the first six weeks of 2013.
The Experian report for January showed that Rightmove was ahead of huge websites such as Bing, Yahoo! and even BBC News in terms of visitor numbers, with only mammoth global sites such as Amazon, Google, Facebook, eBay and YouTube ahead of them. For clients of the self-service estate agent I Am The Agent, these figures mean that alongside the many other portals and sites used, such as Zoopla, Globrix and Prime Location, their properties are being showcased to the largest number of potential buyers or tenants possible.
Rightmove’s figures for this month also indicate that their visitor numbers are growing ever stronger, resulting in an even higher number of views and enquiries for I Am The Agent’s landlords and clients. After the busiest ever month in January, it was noted that traffic was up 20% on 2012, demonstrating that yet more and more people are turning to Rightmove as the definitive place to begin their property search.
All of this is excellent news for those who choose to list their property and coordinate its advertisement through I Am The Agent. The no-commission estate agent positions the property on numerous portals and allows for millions of potential buyers or tenants to view it in its best light. 80% of those looking for property begin their search online, so achieving maximum coverage and exposure on these online portals is one of the best and most effective ways to secure a fast sale with minimum fuss.
The online estate agency also offers a plethora of services to ensure that as well as the property being marketed in the most thorough and effective way, the whole selling or renting process is as simple and painless as possible. Clients can benefit from help with the listing, from photography of the property to the correct emphasis on certain features.
