Property hunting hotting up
THE heatwave didn’t stop us indulging in internet property “viewings”.
More than one in five searches on Rightmove were made on mobile devices on Sunday. A significant percentage of searches on the website were performed on Rightmove’s iPhone app, iPad and mobile phones.
The figure was the highest Rightmove has ever recorded and only the second time the 20 per cent mark has been broken, the previous occasion being Easter Sunday, another scorching day.
Rightmove director Miles Shipside said: “The weather and property are two classic British obsessions, but luckily the two didn’t get in the way of one another during Sunday’s heatwave.”
