Using Google to Predict the Real Estate Market

Real Estate Agent with Florida for Boomers

I use Google trends with Wordtracker when trying to figure out what keywords to use whenever I'm writing real estate copy for clients that will find its way to the web.

But I was just reading Aaron Wall's blog about SEO and he linked to an article about using google to predict where the real estate market is heading.

This looks like it could be a pretty cool tool to try and see where your own market is headed...if you were to take the time to do it.

Of course, it's just a tool. And no tool will "accurately" predict where the real estate market is heading. But it might be something fun to play with while we wait!

Let me know in the comments what you find out about your market.

I've tried rating the number of hits my website gets as a guage of overall buyer interest for Logan Utah Homes for Sale  

The trends don't necessarily match up, I think the relation of people looking and buying doesn't exactly coorelate as sales are down, yet my hits are about level. June (huge sales month) was my smallest month. This method is also not very accurate cuz SEO optimization is always changing.

It's worth a try at this point.
