Trading Statement

Rightmove Plc
06 July 2007

                                  Rightmove plc

                                 TRADING UPDATE

Rightmove plc, the UK's number one property website, today issues a trading
update ahead of its results for the half year ended 30 June 2007, due to be
released on 31 August 2007.

Given the continued growth in new members, high retention rates and a strong
uptake of Rightmove Choice differentiation products in the first half, the Board
is confident that revenue and profit before tax for the full year will be no
less than the current consensus of analysts' forecasts. The consensus of
analysts' estimates for profit before tax, before share option (IFRS 2) charges,
is £29.9m.

Key achievements for the half year have been:

• Web site traffic up 58% on the first six months of 2006 at 24.3m visits per 
  month, with Rightmove now accounting for 82% of all pages served on the top 
  four UK property websites, up from 80% a year ago (May 2007 compared to May 
  2006. Source: Hitwise)

• Overall year-on-year increase of 26% in customer numbers from 14,680 to 
  18,515. This was achieved through strong growth in all regions including
  London which has benefited from its own marketing campaign.

                        June 07       Dec 06      June 06         Annual 
  Estate agents          12,295       11,239       10,360           +19%
  New homes developers    3,478        2,801        2,367           +47%
  Lettings only           2,234        1,800        1,523           +47%
  Overseas                  508          423          430           +18%

• All 15 of the largest 15 estate agents (following Kinleigh Folkard & Hayward's
  42 offices joining) and 95 of the largest 100 estate agents now list on 
  Rightmove. With the signing of McCarthy & Stone 19 of the top 20 developers 
  also list on Rightmove.

• Since launch in February 2007, 2,900 Rightmove Choice products are in use.

• The Holiday Lettings business, in which a 67% stake was acquired in March, 
  has traded ahead of expectations.

• A share buy-back programme was initiated in mid June with the aim of
  repurchasing up to £10.5m of Rightmove shares and retaining these in treasury.
  By 30 June, 1.177m shares had been bought in at an average price of 606p and 
  at a total cost of £7.19m, of which £3.1m was paid out in early July.

• Net cash balances at 30 June 2007 were £16.9m

• Numis Securities appointed as joint brokers alongside UBS.
