Call Jim Frimmer for all your San Diego County real estate needsAround June of 2009, Bob Stewart issued a challenge to write hyper-local posts, and I accepted. Not only were getting the extra points nice, but the hyper-local posts were actually fun to write. Imagine that! Something related to real estate in this economy that was fun to do!

I chose to write about the 39 condominium communities in my farming area, and it took 12 months to get through them all, mainly because I just couldn't find a format to my posts that I was happy with. Finally, about a month ago, I did, so writing posts goes much more smoothly now, and once I get through this second round, I believe I'll be able to go through all 39 communities each month to provide market updates where relevant.

I had a nice weekend planned for Labor Day, and just as sure as I planned it, last Monday a lady from New York emailed me with a request to help her find a condominium in Mission Valley. She said, "Your Mission Valley condo posts are all over the Internet." Via email I sent her properties to consider and got my buyer's rep agreement signed.

She flew into San Diego Thursday night and we went looking at properties all day Friday. We're set to do the same thing Sunday, and Monday, if necessary. People rarely fly from New York to San Diego on the spur of the moment, so that got me to thinking just what "all over the Internet" means.

Depending on what you add to the condominium community names — "Mission Valley," "San Diego," "Mission Valley San Diego," or "San Diego Mission Valley" — here is what you'll find for my ActiveRain posts:

Google search as of September 4, 2010, using the Google terms below:

  • 1 - community name only
  • 2 - community name followed by "mission valley"
  • 3 - community name followed by "san diego"
  • 4 - community name followed by "mission valley san diego"
  • 5 - community name followed by "san diego mission valley"

That's just what I searched on this afternoon. You could also search on "Mission Valley condos San Diego" or any number of iterations using "mission valley," "condos," "san diego," and the community names, and you'd get very similar results.

Now I know what "all over the Internet" means!
