Point2 Homes, a digital portal for real estate has hit another milestone, breaking a record after a 47 percent increase in overall traffic in comparison to the same time last year. According to Google Analytics*, with this, Point2 has surpassed the 6 million visits milestone.
The bulk of visits come from Canada, followed closely by the U.S. This overall rise in traffic has also led to a significant 39 percent boost in the number of leads generated for agents in July 2018 compared to July 2017.
According to comScore's Ranked Category view, Point2 Homes is the fourth biggest listings portal in Canada, right after CREA websites, classifieds site Kijiji.ca and RE/MAX Canada (source: comScore Media Metrix Multi-Platform, Real Estate Category, Language: Other (all except French), Canada, May 2018).
