OnTheMarket.com – the new property portal launched as a rival to Rightmove and Zoopla and where North-East company Acorn Properties Ltd lists all its properties – has achieved 14.9 million visits to the site in just four months.
OnTheMarket.com, which launched on January 26, features hundreds of thousands of properties for sale and to rent at all price points across the UK.
In May alone, OnTheMarket.com received 4.1million visits and on June 16 it recorded its highest ever day for traffic, while in the week beginning June 1 it achieved its highest number of leads.
OnTheMarket.com has recruited more than 800 estate and letting agent offices this year alone and has a membership in excess of 5,000 offices, which consists of more than 2,500 firms. Among them is Acorn Properties (Jesmond) Ltd, one of the North-East’s most respected Letting and Property management specialists.
Acorn Properties has offices in Newcastle and Durham and is further increasing its exposure and penetration in the Sunderland and South Shields areas; 2015 sees its 20th anniversary and the company aims to further grow the business this year.
Acorn is a letting and property management specialist who sell, rather than a traditional estate agent that lets, which allows the company to advise landlords and investors on rental values, yields, return on investment and changes in legislation.
John B Henderson, Managing Director Acorn Properties, said: “It is great news that OnTheMarket.com is growing at such an impressive rate at such an early stage and I feel confident it will continue to expand as the property-seeking public realises it is the first place to find some of the latest homes that come to market.”
Ian Springett, Chief Executive of OnTheMarket.com, said: “We are experiencing impressive levels of returning visitors as well as a high percentage of new ones, while consumers and agents tell us the website is clean and fresh and they are impressed by its lightning speed and by its responsive design, which is unique among the major portals.”
