casayes.pt, a Portuguese property portal run by the Portuguese Real Estate Brokers Association (APEMIP), says its internal figures show it is receiving thousands of new visitors per day.
The portal, which competes with websites such as Portuguese market leader casa.sapo.pt, was first established in June 2008. According to a statement from casayes.pt, it now lists nearly 450,000 properties from over 1,500 agents associated with the APEMIP.
The portal also states that page views have increased by around 560 percent compared to this time last year, and that it now sees a daily average of 4,500 visitors. casayes.pt claims this equates to approximately 140,000 new visitors per month.
"This growth has been steady and sustained, which creates expectations that in the second semester 2010 we will achieve results to the level of the best national and international real estate portals," a casayes.pt spokesperson told propertyportalwatch.com.
casayes.pt listings are free to members of APEMIP, and the portal is available in Portuguese, English and Spanish.
