Rightmove Overseas in the press

On Sunday 28th June, we saw over 1 million property searches on Rightmove Overseas for the first time ever – that’s 73% higher than the same Sunday last year. This resulted in the highest number of leads sent to overseas agents in a single day since the start of 2019. We’re encouraged to see this heightened demand and look forward to those searches and leads turning into sales for agents and developers overseas.
