Toronto was the most-searched market with almost 457,000 visits and seeing the highest traffic increase of all Canadian cities (61% year-over-year).
Ottawa was also a popular destination for site visitors with over 167,000 visits (up 42%) while Calgary took the third spot, registering a little over 155,000 visits (up 50%).
Total pageviews on the platform surpassed 40 million during the first month of 2019, leading to a 54% year-over-year increase. 47% of visits were brought in by new users.
US visitors surge
There was an 82% increase in visits from the US compared to a year ago but Mexico accounted for the largest number of international visits (166,000).
The growth in traffic meant that real estate professionals received 30% more leads this January compared to 2018.
The site now allows both members and non-members to advertise their listings directly on the site.
