There are many real estate web portals in India but when it comes to search the property, often people get confused which one to try.
Although most of the people depend on local real estate agent when it comes to buy or rent a property but there are many great deals, you can find with your property dealers.
So I decided to write a complete article helping out with your ordeal for property search. Every website has some features that others don’t. So we tried to give you the unique selling points (USP) of each real estate website.
It is up to you to choose a web portal for your search according to your needs or preferences.
10 Best Real Estate Websites
Below you can find the list of the sites with their rank website link so you can directly jump to your favourite real estate site.
The first real estate web portal on our top 10 list is 99Acres. This is another premier website for buying and selling properties.
It claims to be India’s number one real estate web portal so we ranked it 1st in our list.
Again the USP of 99Acres is resale. This site could offer you a vast enumeration of locations, projects or societies if you want to resale your apartment, a villa or a commercial property.
Their database is quite genuine, at least compared to others. Rest of the features like buying selling, renting is quite unexceptional.
- Alexa Rank in India: 140
- Website: http://www.99acres.com
Second web portal is MagicBricks in our top 10 list. This website had quite a meteoric rise in India.
So what is the USP of MagicBricks? Well! According to my experience this particular web portal is designed for buying and renting purposes.
I liked their buying search engine because the results were very satisfying. If you want to rent then also the database is OK.
However avoid if you want to resell your house, use others’.
Another thing I like about Magic Bricks is images and detail research that they offer before buying a property.
- Alexa Rank in India: 154
- Website: http://www.magicbricks.com
Next is CommonFloor relatively a new site but gained popularity in no time.
Its USP is simple just buying and selling in major top tier cities like Mumbai, New Delhi, Bangalore and other few.
So if you live in 3rd tier cities like Bhopal or Lucknow then you might run into problems with this web portal.
Otherwise the site is pretty mediocre and has nothing special to offer.
- Alexa Rank in India: 210
- Website: http://www.commonfloor.com
IndiaProperty is fourth on our countdown list.
Although I have limited experience with this site but what I found out the site works well if you have to do research about a particular property you want to buy.
The USP of this site is details that it could offer. You can get into details for a particular city and dig up all the information that you need.
Moreover, India Property is also good for people living in smaller cities.
- Alexa Rank in India: 306
- Website: http://www.indiaproperty.com
Next on our list is Housing. Web portals like Common Floor, IndiaProperty and Housing are in same league.
The thing I liked about the website is accuracy of their database. Their listing is still genuine and success rate of buying or selling a property is good because of quality of their data.
According to Housing.com their verified listing is over 1 million.
Moreover the web portal also has good reputation if you want to buy (not sell) a property outside India.
- Alexa Rank in India: 318
- Website: http://www.housing.com
Now our list is narrowing down and these web portals starting from GrabHouse fall in another league.
Grab House is number one site for roommates and PG in Mumbai only.
Grab House is good for only roommate and PG services. If you are living in Mumbai and want a roommate or want to share a flat then GrabHouse is the best.
The USP of this site is if you are looking for roommate or PG services then go to GrabHouse and do NOT go to top 3 or 6 web portals mentioned above.
However never take them seriously when it comes to buying or selling any of your property.
- Alexa Rank in India: 892
- Website: http://www.grabhouse.com
Makaan has been there for a while now but still not in the top league. Well a web portal has to have some USP otherwise it won’t exist.
The USP of Makaan is relatively better quality of database compared to others, for few cities like Ahmadabad, Pune and Hyderabad.
- Alexa Rank in India: 1239
- Website: http://www.makaan.com
To be honest the last three 8th, 9th and 10th are just for completing the top 10 list.
I mean seriously you could avoid going to these web portals. But anyhow, I will tell you what’s good in them.
PropertyWala is only for buying and renting purposes. You can give a shot if you live in Delhi or Mumbai.
- Alexa Rank in India: 1645
- Website: www.propertywala.com
The second last that we have included in our top 10 list is PropTiger. The listings are good for only two cities Mumbai and Bangalore.
The USP of Prop Tiger is property listing if you are a NRI. Seriously avoid using this site.
- Alexa Rank in India: 1949
- Website: www.proptiger.com
10. Sulekha Properties
The last one website in our list is Sulekha Properties. Why are we saying so? However we have kept this particular site last because of quality of database.
Real difference this web portal offers is local property search in your city.
The reason is every real estate web portal caters to properties in main cities like Mumbai, New Delhi etc but here if you live in a small city like Mysore or Nagpur then the site could offer some real deals.
So the USP (unique selling point) of Sulekha Properties is users living in south Indian cities.
- Alexa Rank in India: 91
- Website: http://property.sulekha.com/
So these were top 10 real estate web portals in India for your property search. Visit their website and find out more.
