Apartment sites climb Hitwise list

Top 4 sites remain fixed in rankings

Two apartment-search sites — ApartmentGuide.com, a part of Primedia family of apartment and rental unit sites; and ForRent.com, owned by Homes.com parent company Dominion Enterprises — joined a top 20 list of most-searched real estate sites in July.

Online metrics company Hitwise reported that MLSFinder.com, which ranked 19th on the June list (see article) based on market share of site visits to real estate category Web sites, and Redfin.com, which ranked 20th in June, were bumped off the July top 20 list.
