British property portal, Rightmove, has seen its fair share of criticism from agents and rival platforms but it has also enjoyed its best month ever for website visits.

In January it had over 150 million visits for the first time.

Specifically there were over 152 million visits, a seven percent increase on January 2019. The previous record for the busiest month was in May 2019.

The top five busiest days ever on Rightmove were all after January 21 this year with Wednesday January 29 topping the list. 

There were over 5.7 million visits on that day, up nine percent on the previous record.

Time spent by home hunters on the site was up four percent with people spending a total of 1.17 billion minutes.

The number of sales being agreed by agents was up 12 percent compared to the same month in 2019, the biggest year-on-year jump in any month since July 2017. 

London saw the biggest uplift, up 26 percent year-on-year, followed by the East of England, up 20 percent.

According to Rightmove Director Miles Shipside:

“Home-movers have sprung into action in 2020, with a large number of agents telling us that sales and valuations have picked up significantly in their local areas."
