MONTREAL, Feb. 26, 2015 /CNW Telbec/ - According to an analysis conducted by comScore, an independent firm that measures Internet audience, DuProprio.com has made its way to first-place in the ranking of most-visited real estate websites in Quebec. In 2014, DuProprio.com received an average of 706,000 unique visitors per month, surpassing its top competitors and confirming that DuProprio has truly become the consumers' benchmark for real estate websites in Quebec.
For Marco Dodier, president and chief executive officer at DuProprio, this is a sign that Quebec real estate has entered a new era: "For us, these statistics clearly illustrate that consumer habits have evolved and that Quebecers really enjoy dealing directly with the seller when looking for a new property."
This trend is equally reflected on the side of the sellers who want to save on commission fees. In fact, between 2008 and 2014, the number of new DuProprio clients increased by more than 200%.
According to Mr. Dodier, provoking a revolution in real estate, that benefits consumers, is a source of pride for the company. "Our team is the only one to offer such a comprehensive commission-free sales service in assisted real estate. Our service helps Quebec homeowners and provides extremely convincing results. We are very proud to offer our clients exceptional support and visibility for their properties, which is essential in order to attract a buyer."
