Make the most of this demand to find a buyer or tenant quickly

Featured Property is the fastest and most effective way to increase your exposure to our audience of active buyers and tenants. It automatically places your property at the top of the search results page, typically resulting in at least double the detail views of a standard Rightmove listing. That gives you the best chance of maximising enquiries and finding a buyer or tenant quickly.

What the data shows

The chart shows how total detail views on Rightmove have changed in your area relative to the same week in 2019. A “detail view” is a measure of how many people click through to view a property’s full details. Home movers tend to research properties for a few weeks before they begin to send enquiries, so tracking the uplift in detail views is an early indicator of increasing demand. The data is a combination of detail views across properties for sale and for let.

Methodology

Each day on the chart represents a rolling 7 day average and is compared to the 7 day average for the same period in 2019. For example, the data shown on 12th May 2020 compares the average daily detail views for 6th–12th May 2020 to 6th–12th May 2019.
