Austin Takes the Top Spot for Increased Search Activity for Realtor.com!
I am happy to report that our company has been quite busy selling homes lately here in Austin, with the last quarter shaping up very nicely. In fact, this has probably been the most active season for our company in about two years.
My friend Brian Block, who is a broker in the northern Virginia/D.C area, sent me a link to an interesting and encouraging article from Realtor.com, which states that Austin took the top spot in year-over-year search increase on Realtor.com, with a 91% jump from September 2008 to September 2009. WOW! This is clearly very exciting news for us. Brian spotted this article on Twitter.
Thankfully, we have seen similar results with the traffic to our website at www.austintexashomes.com, which is in the top 5 results on Google for almost every major real estate term that I care about.
The other cities in the top five were Las Vegas, New Orleans, Reno, and Tyler, Texas. Tyler came as an interesting surprise to me. My parents lived in Tyler just before I was born and we have relatives in that area.
