The site reported a record 4.6 million visits and 26 million page views with an increase of almost 43% month-over-month among Canadian visitors (2.9 million). 

The leading markets delivering traffic to the site were in Toronto and Ottawa but there were also sharp rises in users from Calgary (46%) and Vancouver (69%).

Point2 Homes says it has delivered a year-over-year increase in leads to real estate agents of 36.12%.
