Around 18,000 house-hunters were seen browsing Rightmove.co.uk in the hour between 0000 and 0100 on 1st January 2013 and they were joined by many more over the course of New Year’s Day - over 1 million visits were clocked up on Rightmove (not including traffic from Rightmove mobile platforms).
People also found the time for house-hunting during the hectic Christmas period. There were over 1.6m visits to rightmove.co.uk between Christmas Eve and Boxing Day as home-hunters escaped from the cycle of wrapping presents, opening presents, cooking food, eating food, and slumping down in front of a movie and the Queen’s speech. This was around 30% up on the number of ‘Christmas escapees’ recorded last year, so we can only assume 2014 will be an even greater number!
Even as the hours ticked by ahead of Christmas Day morning there were around 160,000 visits to Rightmove between 8pm on Christmas Eve night and 8am on Christmas Day morning.
