This sure is timely. Just a few hours after Zillow.com announced its intentions of going public, Experian Hitwise released its report on the top 20 real estate Web sites in the country.
Zillow.com is holding steady in the third slot with a 5.3 percent of all visits, just behind Realtor.com and Yahoo Real Estate. That’s just ahead of rival Trulia, which ranked fourth with 4.63 percent market share. Trulia has boasted in the past about how it is now bigger than its Seattle rival, but at least in this survey Zillow is holding on.
In fact, the report found that its share increased 53 percent over the same period last year. The report also ranks the top real estate search terms, with Realtor.com at 1.3 percent; Zillow at 0.82 percent and Remax at 0.46 percent.
