I recently tried to find the most searched real estate locations in the world. Seems easy enough, right? Well, actually it is not. We can find the answer to that question only to some degree. The reason being that we have limited sources…
First of all, we usually can only see what people search on the internet.
Nobody is able to analyse all the requests real estate agents get from their clients all over the world in person. And to be fair, in many countries the face to face business is still more common than online business especially when it comes to real estate.
Another factor is the many languages spoken in this world. If I search for “most searched real estate locations” I will only get results in English – only representing English speaking countries. According to Wikipedia, there exists approx. 6500 languages though…
Another thing is that even among English speaking countries there are differences, one country might call it “real estate” but another country rather uses the word “property” instead.
Also, we can look at statistics of Google or similar search engines but what about the thousands of real estate portals that exists all over the world? How can we know what users enter in their search form? You really need to make a lot of research to come even close to an answer for that question.
Anyway, what kind of locations are you looking for? A country, a city or even a town…?
Usually people ask about the most searched real estate locations because they like to know where is a really good place for investment. But then, this again comes down to the good old fashion supply and demand rule. If demand increases and supply remains unchanged, then it leads to a higher price.
Taking this in account, we need to see where demand is actually increased.
To determine whether demand is increased you have to compare the number of searches for real estate with the number of available real estate. And this can mean that you don’t need to go all around the world to find a good investment. It might even be a small town in your own country.
From my experience any place (city, town) that has good jobs available has a thriving real estate market.
For example, I live in a small town with a lot of industry and jobs around. Therefore, the demand for real estate – especially one-bedroom apartments – is very high. The last apartment that was put up for sale sold within 12 hours. Amazing! That’s the kind of location you like to invest in.
But to come back to above question, here are some locations I found today using results of search engine results in English:
London, Vancouver, Toronto, Utah, Newburgh Indiana, Wake County and Allegheny County Real Estate…
I have to say though, after all research I did on this topic those locations not necessarily are a good place for investment. You will always need to make more research to determine whether it is a good location for an investment or not.
