Zoopla has reported a record January – the third of the major portals to do so.
Both Rightmove and OnTheMarket have also reported record starts to the year.
Zoopla says that its traffic was up, with a 15% uplift in web sessions, while applicant leads to agents were up 25% on the previous January and valuation leads up 17%.
Over 345 new agent branches signed up, or returned, to Zoopla last month.
CEO Charlie Bryant said: “We’ve started the year with tremendous impact, both for our agent partners and for our business.”
Zoopla launched a new TV ad campaign on Boxing Day, which is being hailed a success.
Bryant said that with the backing of US equity owner Silver Lake which returned the business to private ownership in July 2018, it is a “new era for Zoopla”.
He said: “This is set to be a game-changing year for us, and we look forward to partnering with more and more agents to help them realise their ambitions.”
