Top 10 online agents revealed as number of new property listings grows

Online agents are continuing to grow in popularity and gain market share, and new figures have revealed which ones are dominating the listings.

Purplebricks has topped the list of the UK’s online estate agents in terms of the number of properties it has on its books, according to new research commissioned by The Property Franchise Group, covered by Property Industry Eye.

The agent registered 66,125 new listings over a 12-month period to the end of August, which is a 31% rise on the previous year, and well ahead of the second top-ranking agent, Yopa, which took on 9,183 new listings over the same period – although this was a huge 119% increase on the year before, showing that competitors are definitely catching up with the most popular brand.
