Homes.com, Apartment Guide and Rent.com all moved up in Experian Marketing Services’ rankings of top real estate websites in January, surging past MSN Real Estate.

Century 21 maintained its position as the only franchisor website in the top 20, and Redfin and ZipRealty were the top brokerage websites on the list.

Movoto — which obtains listings data as a licensed broker in California and 35 other states, but which operates primarily as a referral site for agents at other brokerages — was the only other brokerage site in the top 20.

HAR.com — the consumer-facing website operated by the Houston Association of Realtors — was the only multiple listing service website in the top 20.

Total U.S. visits to real estate websites were up 25 percent from December, to 364.4 million.
