In 2014, several neighborhoods demanded the most searches out of any other, many of which happen to be in the South and Midwest.

“The hyper-local markets on this list demonstrate the wonderful diversity of real estate demand across the country,” realtor.com Chief Economist, Jonathan Smoke said. “Median list prices in these most-searched neighborhoods are near $400,000, well above national median of $214,000, as well as their respective metro medians. Homes in these communities are moving quickly as the aggregated median age for the group is almost half of the national median of 90 days.”

Why this information is useful

Rankings are based on realtor.com search and unique visitor statistics at ZIP level from January to November 2014 (desktop only, excludes mobile and web apps). Figures are adjusted relative to housing stock, and ranked ZIPs have a minimum of 5,000 listings.

More than anything, this information is brain candy, useful as talking points for realtors in these areas popular in the search. Further, a search does not equate legitimate interest, but could indicate future hot spots, given that home buyers begin their search far in advance.

Since the data excludes mobile search, it is an incomplete picture (given the spike in mobile traffic for the entire industry this year), but it is fun and entertaining list, nonetheless. Congrats, Orlando agents, you’re number one (on this list)!
