Nick McKittrick, Chief Executive Officer, said: Rightmove is becoming even more popular with the British home moving public. Our share of traffic amongst the top four property websites has increased significantly as more people search and research the only place with over one million properties for sale and to rent in the UK.

 We continue to innovate and invest to make Rightmove even more compelling to home movers and advertisers with tools such as our Valuation range app and recently launched School Checker.

 Our aim has always been to help our agents and developers succeed by delivering great value marketing and building strong relationships to support their ambitions. This approach continues to serve us well as we have grown our customer base to an all-time high showing that Rightmove is the overwhelming site of choice, not only for Britain’s home movers, but also its property professionals.”
