Trulia (NYSE: TRLA), a leading online marketplace for home buyers, sellers, renters, and real estate professionals, announced today that May was a record month for traffic and that the company has experienced a re-acceleration of traffic. The consumer side of Trulia’s marketplace reached a record number of unique visitors in May with more than 51 million unique visitors.
“Trulia’s consumer audience is at all-time high, which is a good indicator of a strong housing market heading into the summer,” said Pete Flint. “The release of our new mobile capabilities this spring, coupled with our national marketing campaign and $50,000 Home Give Away Sweepstakes, is delivering record traffic and a re-acceleration of growth heading into the peak real estate season.”
Traffic Growth Driven by National Marketing Campaign
Trulia launched its national marketing campaign in mid-March with its first commercial on TV and advertising across online, mobile, and radio. The second phase of Trulia’s national marketing campaign launched on May 12 with a second commercial and the announcement of a $50,000 Home Give Away Sweepstakes. Knowing that the down payment is major obstacle to home-buying, the winner of the sweepstakes, that runs through end of June, will win $50,000 to a down payment or any other home expense they choose. The sweepstakes was announced because according to a survey of renters that wish to buy a home, the biggest obstacle to homeownership was coming up with a down payment.  The winner of the sweepstakes will win $50,000 to use toward a down payment for their dream home – or any other home expense they choose.
Trulia recorded more than 51 million monthly unique visitors in May 2014, up 47% from May 2013. This was an acceleration from 42% growth in Q1 2014 compared to Q1 2013. Breaking this down further, Trulia standalone’s audience in May 2014 grew by 29% compared to May 2013, prior to the acquisition of Market Leader. This was an acceleration from the 18% growth rate for Trulia standalone in Q1 2014 compared to Q1 2013.
