Now that the cookies have been devoured and Santa has come and gone, we here at Zillow have been reflecting on the season and noticed that, more than ever before, people are flocking to Zillow Mobile during the holidays.

It’s no surprise that weekends are typically peak times for mobile usage. Over the past year we’ve learned that your thirst for real estate information doesn’t end when you shut off your desktop. People are using  Zillow Mobile while attending open houses, exploring new neighborhoods, even walking the dog.

What is surprising is the surge in mobile traffic on holidays. Christmas Day was the single largest traffic day ever for Zillow Mobile, and Thanksgiving was in the top 5! In fact, on Thanksgiving and Christmas, Zillow Mobile accounted for 30% and 33% of total Zillow traffic respectively. And, over the Christmas weekend, consumers looked at homes on Zillow apps more than one million times.

So, if you’ve got a shiny new iPhone, Android, or even iPad this holiday, join the more than 3 million downloaders who’ve made the Zillow Apps #1 in Real Estate.

    I am surprised that their is not an app for blackberry. There are a lot of us that use Blackberry’s, especially Realtors like myself.

  • South Beach Java

    wow ! this post is eye catching and has a great info.

  • Carmen Brodeur | Desert Mountain Homes

    I saw a big spike in my online traffic during the holidays too. I think people are using their holidays to look at real estate.

  • Paul Viau – Novascotianhomes

    That is good info. Traditionally real estate trading drops over the Christmas holidays! What this means is that we have to ramp up for the holidays. The buyers may not be ready to buy , but they are definitely looking !

  • Owner Finance Texas

    Very cool info. Business is still going strong even through the holidays.

  • Gainesville Real Estate

    Our traffic usually drops significantly on Holiday weekends…

  • Shoreview Homes for Sale

    I also noticed a traffic increase to my website during the Christmas weekend. Maybe folks were exhausted from spending time with family? =)

  • Mahtomedi Homes for Sale

    That is a ton of mobile users! This trend is likely to remain strong too given the excellent new smart phones hitting the market.

  • Blaine MN Homes

    It makes sense that weekends are the peak times for mobile Zillow usage, but I bet that midweek is higher for computer Zillow users given people are on their computers at work most of the work day.

    We noticed a peak in our traffic as well, looks like everyone wanted a new home for Christmas!
