September 11, 2013 // Franchising.com // KANSAS CITY, Mo. – More consumers than ever begin researching purchases online, including over ninety percent of real estate buyers. In July, millions of these consumers searched the Internet, interested in lifestyle real estate. According to United Country Real Estate, the nation’s largest seller of non-urban real estate, visitor traffic at the firm’s national website increased to record levels.
“We have been consistently breaking web traffic records at www.UnitedCountry.com each month for well over a year now,” said David Dickey, chief technology officer for United Country Real Estate. “We’ve received over 1.5 million visitors in July to just one of our numerous owned lifestyle and rural property websites, nearly 700,000 of which were unique visitors. These numbers are larger than any month our team has seen since UnitedCountry.com launched nearly 20 years ago.”
According to Dan Duffy, chief executive officer of United Country Real Estate, these numbers only reflect traffic for the company’s primary national website, UnitedCountry.com, and do not account for the firm’s other 3,500-plus property specific, lifestyle, local office and niche market websites.
“When you include the performance of our other property marketing sites, we capture nearly 3,000,000 visitors per month – dwarfing the performance of all other major national real estate brands on a per property, per office and per agent basis. Our team has done an excellent job of delivering on our promise to sellers of properties listed with our affiliated offices to market their properties. The record setting web site performance for searches on our sites also underscores the large and continuing interest in retirement, investment, vacation, recreational, ranch and other forms of lifestyle and rural real estate,” Duffy said.
