Realtor.com's traffic increases in down market

More people are searching for homes on Realtor.com despite one of the worst housing markets in recent history according to a recent report ( Consumer Search Trends Show Increased Interest in Real Estate by Potential Home Buyers )

Despite all the bad news out there this is a good indication that there is healthy interest among home shoppers in a number of markets. a few key markets showed strong growth in searches:

"We're encouraged to see continued increases in page views and the time our users invest on Realtor.com as they search for real estate," says Realtor.com President, Errol Samuelson. "This trend confirms earlier findings from our recent survey indicating a pent up demand for real estate with markets like Stockton-Lodi, CA, Fort Myers-Cape Coral, FL, Las Vegas, NV and Detroit, MI experiencing the greatest year-over-year increases in searches by consumers."

With buyers out there it remains true that the best way to sell a house is to advertise and make sure people know it is available. At Owners.com we stick by our belief that this is the most effective way to sell a house and that you should be able to list your home on Realtor.com and the local MLS for one low flat fee with no restrictive sellers agent contracts.
