Whodathunk you would see Arkansas in the Top Ten list. It does have over 600 cities and towns, but what is going on there to attract real estate searches? Maybe you agents and brokers from Arkansas can shed a little light. Of course Mrs. Palin's notoriety may have been a partial cause for Alaska's inclusion in the top ten. I know Alaska a little. I ran a placer gold mining operation up near Denali in the early 80's and my cook stayed there and turned into a politician. (I hope he legislates better than he cooked, LOL!!) Iowa has gained attention because of the Olympic gymnastics team as well as the investment possibilities there. Indiana has long been a down market. Maybe they are starting to attract buyers now.
We are studying why each of these states was in the Top Ten for August on REindex.com, The Site Engine®. If you have something to point to, let us know. I'll be blogging the results of our research as we uncover it. Other states in the list were California and Texas, Pennsylvania, Florida, Missouri, West Virginia. There are a lot of people looking for real estate!
Happy Selling and Listing!
