Your Search Questions-Answered

Just before I went to bed last night I was looking at my analytics program for the blog.  I know, kind of pathetic but I’m hopelessly addicted.  It shows stats that allow me to understand where readers are coming from, what they are reading and what they are looking for.  It sounds more detailed then it really is.  I can never tell exactly who is reading the blog and from where, but it gives me a pretty good understanding.   The  most fascinating section of these analytic programs are the “search statistics”.  In a nutshell, I can see what has been searched and how that has landed readers on urbancondospaces.com either purposefully or accidentally.  I thought it would interesting to examine the searched items from yesterday.  It may be helpful for you to understand what is trending in the real estate world.  See below:

Searched: “vine condos”

Answer: I imagine this person was just inquiring into the building itself.  Maybe they were curious about the units that sold, or the amenities included in the building.  I have included my last post on the Vine Condos (read here:  The Vine)

Searched: “i’m being asked to get a license before i can rent my condo

Answer: I suppose this person was curious if they need a license to rent their own condo.  In the state of Washington, the answer would be “no”.  If they were assisting others in their rental and advertising as a property manager, then that is another story.  Also some states may require it, so it depends on their jurisdiction.

Searched: “housing tax credit extension again”

Searched: “bravern auction”
