Some of the biggest car websites in the country will be scratching their heads at the moment as Gumtree brags about their dominance in the used car listing market – more than CarSales.com.au and CarsGuide.com.au which are renowned as places to find a car online.
The Automotive category on Gumtree is growing – with more than180,000 total live car listings across Australia (Gumtree data 7/7/16), everything from bush-bashers to Lamborghinis.
Gumtree say they are serving 7.1 million unique browsers each month (Nielsen May 2016 figures), a staggering number by any measure – and it’s probably why the car section is growing.
Most of us can’t afford a luxury BMW or even a brand new VW from the dealer, so going second hand is a great way to get value if you know what you’re looking for.
Take a look at this data Gumtree provided to EFTM on the car listings on their website right now:
