Chicago Real Estate a Popular Search for 2010

January 11, 2011

The Chicago real estate market was one of the most searched markets last year.

Realtor.com has released its list of the top 10 most searched real estate markets of 2010. The site must know, considering it was the most visited online real estate website of the year.

The Top 10 most searched real estate markets of 2010:

Realtor.com says that more than 90 percent of homebuyers search for their next home online.

1. Las Vegas

2. Los Angeles

3. Orlando

4. San Antonio

5. Miami

6. Phoenix

7. San Diego

8. Austin

9. Tampa

10. Chicago

The site broke down the most searched markets by month.

Here is where Chicago fell during each month of 2010:

*January: No. 9

*February: No. 9

*March: No. 7

*April: No. 9

*May: No. 9

*June: No. 10

*July: No. 10

*August: No. 9

*September: No. 9

*October: No. 9

*November: No. 9

*December: Did not make the list.

So, had Chicago made that December list, we probably would have ranked higher overall.

“Online search is a critical measure of interest in real estate, especially now that more than 90 percent of buyers search for their homes online,” said Realtor.com President, Errol Samuelson. “As the number one homes for sale website, searches on Realtor.com show us where the highest potential for activity is across the country.”

So many real estate markets struggled in 2010, so it’s nice to see that interest in Chicago real estate remained somewhat constant.

Let’s hope for increased interest in 2011.
