05 April 2016 Reporter

Free-to-list portal Homely has reported a record number of listings, leads and consumer visits in the first quarter of 2016, while also seeing significant growth in user-generated content.

Homely’s listing volumes peaked during the quarter, with over 350,000 homes submitted from over 90 per cent of Australian real estate offices, and 8,000 agents receiving inquires from the website.

Homely’s month-on-month growth has seen its traffic increase by almost 300 per cent in two years, with between 7 and 10 million Australians predicted to visit the site in 2016. Engagement in Homely’s local discussions rose by 20 per cent month on month.

The portal has also grown its volume of user-generated content, with over 500,000 ratings and local discussions of streets, suburbs and amenities.

Jason Spencer, co-founder and CEO of Homely, said it is exciting to see that many people are choosing Homely over more established portals to help find their next home.
