ZPG announces hike in listings and agents

Em Morley - May 24, 2017

ZPG has today published its half-year figures, which reveal a 6% increase in the number of agents and 9% rise in the total listings on its Zoopla and Primelocation portals.

This has resulted in a 22% hike in revenue for the group. 750 estate agent breaches have been to the portals in the last two years, with ZPG moving to invest in a new business that will provide an alternative to tenants’ deposits.

Rising Revenue

During the six months to the end of March 2017, revenue increased to £117.9m, with ZPG recording record traffic. Over 314m visits to the company’s websites and apps were seen in the period – 68% of these using mobile devices.

This 6% rise in agents took the total to 14,271 branches, with inventory now up over 928,000 listings.

What’s more, average revenue per partner has increased by 5%, driven by a healthy demand for portal and software products.
