— MagicBricks.com, India’s No.1 Property Portal from the Times Group, has consolidated its leadership position in the online real estate space by recording the maximum number of Unique Visitors to its website, as adjudged by comScore, the global leader in measuring the digital world and preferred source of digital marketing intelligence.
In its effort to provide the best response to its customers, MagicBricks.com has consistently improved on attracting unique visitors to its website over the last 3 months. As per comScore, MagicBricks.com attracts 9% more unique visitors compared to its nearest competitor and is way ahead of the website that has slipped to third position with 125% more unique visitors than them.
Unique visitors is a statistic describing traffic to a Web site, counting each visitor only once in the time-frame of the report. This statistic is relevant as a measure of a site’s true audience size. This is one of the most important metrics for a property portal, given that property is a once in a lifetime purchase for most end users.
Commenting on this impartial, third party report, Mr. R. Sundar, CEO, Times Business Solutions Limited stated, “Within three months of its launch, MagicBricks.com achieved the status of being the No.1 property portal in India. With its revolutionary next-gen services customized specifically to address the real estate industry it has consolidated its position as the leader in the sector, as endorsed by comScore.”
“Our innovations are geared towards delivering assured responses to all our users’ property needs and providing them with exposure and leads across India and globally.” added Mr. Ramathreya Krishnamurthi, Business Head, MagicBricks.com, “Our ability to attract and magnetize property seekers is unequalled, making MagicBricks.com the port-of-first call, for anyone wanting to buy, sell or rent property in India.

Through the ‘Magic SMS’ service, users can send free SMS through the website to sellers for properties and buyers for requirements that interest them and with “Click to Call” users can call sellers for free through the site.
