French market-leading property portal group SeLoger Group has announced that it recorded record traffic for June of 2020 with 13.9 million unique visitors to its portals. The figure, which was verified by media research company MediaMetrie, represents an impressive 55% more than June of 2019 for the Axel Springer owned group which includes the portals SeLoger and Logic-Immo.
SeLoger is far from the only property portal to have reported record traffic since the onset of the pandemic. It really does seem that people across the world have had their notion of what their home should be challenged by the pandemic and ensuing lockdown period. As early as March, Aussie #1 portal realestate.com.au reported a record 10.7 million users, in Sweden Hemnet recorded a 17% year on year rise for April, in the UK all the major portals and some of the challengers such as OneDome recorded record traffic over the summer as well, and in Southeast Asia iProperty has seen a rebound in traffic as well.
