An anonymous website has published details of UK property listings which places Purplebricks in poll position.
Called EA League Tables, its unnamed publisher claims to have spent considerable time researching the data, which is a snapshot of properties for sale but not under offer or SSTC and which excludes commercial or new build properties.
It claims that Purplebricks has the largest number of properties for sale in the UK at 16,284 followed by Connells’ estate agency William H Brown at 5,316, Connells at 4,820, Hunters at 4,758 and Your Move at 4,661.
The researchers also looked at estate agency groupings, placing Connells first at 19,294, Countrywide second at 17,143 followed by Purplebricks.
LSL is the fourth largest grouping with 8,351 listings with Spicerhaart in fifth position at 5,333.
Purplebricks has added approximately 2,000 listings to its total since 2017 largely at the expense of Your Move which has lost a similar number of properties for sale.
The other major estate agency brands have largely been trading water over the past two years, the data shows.
This includes William H Brown, Hunters and Connells although several have lost ground including Foxtons, which lists 1,153 fewer properties than it did in 2017.
The website, which is publisehd using the Godaddy.com platform, lists the top 20 agencies in the UK, also now includes three hybrid/online agencies (Purplebricks, Yopa and ExpressEstateAgency), two more than it did two years ago.
