With each passing month, the giants of online real estate continue to break records for web traffic. In June, both Trulia (TRLA) and Zillow (Z) set records for unique visitors. 

That follows record-breaking traffic for both sites in May as well. 

Zillow has increased its traffic in each of the last five months, topping out at just shy of 83 million in June. That eclipsed May’s total by 1.5 million visitors.

The site had a year-over-year increase of 49% from June 2013, when the site had 55.7 million visitors, to June 2014, when the site had 82.99 million visitors.

Trulia broke its own record in June as well. The site welcomed 54 million unique visitors in June, which is up 55% from June 2013. The company’s traffic was up 3 million from May 2014.

Trulia said that its rate of growth is increasing. “This was an acceleration from 42% growth in Q1 2014 compared to Q1 2013, and the 47% annual growth rate in May 2014 compared to May 2013,” the company said.

“Trulia’s marketing campaign continues to deliver strong results in attracting more transaction-ready consumers to our platform,” said Pete Flint, CEO and co-founder of Trulia. “The marketing campaign, combined with our leading consumer products, are contributing to the acceleration of our audience growth amidst the busiest part of the home buying and selling season.”

Both sites’ increasing traffic has done wonders for their stock prices as well. Trulia's stock is up 16.76% year-to-date and 23.38% from the same date last year.

Zillow’s stock price has grown by even more. It’s up 59.88% YTD and up 115.12% from the same date in 2013.
