Real Estate By Numbers

October 29, 2012

This month, our “By the Numbers” update for continues to tap into the pulse of the national market to see what local insights and consumer trends have unfolded across the different regions of the U.S.

With larger homes continuing to appeal to homebuyers, it’s important to note that the top 10 most-searched homes on consisted of three bedrooms or more in August. Visitors looked at homes that average 3.40 bedrooms and 2.38 bathrooms, up 2.7% and 0.8%, respectively from the previous month.

Four California homes were included in the top 10 list of the most viewed properties on, including three of the most expensive homes in the nation.

And while the prices of the homes on our most viewed list run the gamut, we found that overall homes priced between $100,000-199,999 received the most traffic nationally, followed by those in the $200,000’s.  As the housing market continues to improve, it will be interesting to see if traffic to higher priced homes, usually considered “move up” homes, rises too.

And since we are obviously in Presidential election mode, four “swing states” deemed important in the election are in the roundup of top 10 states where some of the most visitors to reside. Those living in Florida, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Ohio are clearly active in home searching.
