The real estate industry has reluctantly been pulled online during the last three years and today most agents and brokers know that people are searching for homes online.
Hopefully this will be the year that brokerages start building great websites- and hopefully they will hire a great website design company like BlueRoof360 to do it.
But which areas are people most actively looking online for homes? Using Google Trends we can see which states and cities are the most active searching for different terms. Let’s look and see where people are really looking online…
