Consumer traffic still growing

Traffic statistics are in for January from Nielsen NetRatings. Great news for HouseValues: our network of sites (which includes HouseValues.com, JustListed.com and HomePages.com, among others), had more unique visitors in January than AOL Real Estate, Yahoo! Real Estate, Homes.com and many other top real estate destinations.

Interest in HomePages in particular has definitely picked up. Not only did the TV ad campaign kick into high gear in January (with spots running on several networks including TBS, Fox News, HGTV and more), but the MSNBC relationship and some great PR also helped our cause.

And things are just getting warmed up (literally), as the busy spring home-buying season is still ahead of us.
