House hunting 2017 - The story so far


House Hunting Launch

With over 3,500 students given an early access invitation to view the Unipol website on 20th January 2017, the site saw 29,996 adverts viewed from 6,225 property searches.  This activity continued into the official launch date with a further 9,720 property searches conducted and 34,260 adverts viewed. The first four days of house hunting saw 30,151 property searches and 134,453 advert views.

The story so far

The site remains busy with 145,073 property searches and 567,779 adverts viewed so far in 2017. Since the start of house hunting on 21st January up to 17 June there have been 80,992 sessions with 44,498 being unique.

House hunting 2017 has started strongly, it is expected there will be a further surge in interest as many students will be looking to secure accommodation before July 2017. Going into the summer period there will be interest from International students who require accommodation and some students who will be waiting until their return before finding their next home.

Results are currently being collated from our latest student forum so further information and insights from this will follow soon.
