Who Cares About Your Local Real Estate Market

Nobody cares about your local Real estate market like you do! Lets also not forget about the others who own, rent, buy, sell, borrow, work, play, eat, sleep, and are considering living there too?  When a home becomes available for sale on your street in YourCity, YS. aren't you often more interested in the sales price than you are actually buying your neighbors house? Maybe, maybe not? 

Providing local real estate information in your area is a great addition to the variety of content your blog or website should deliver.  According to the views below, there's many that like viewing market reports.

Making Real Estate Market information available to your hyper-local readers and visitors is very valuable.

Have you considered using some of these market-share stats, graphs and reports on your newsletters, email campaigns, and blog posts etc?  Here's some great information and tools you can use to add to your content that may generate you more traffic, local consumer interest, and hopefully some additional business as the local expert.

Here's just a few links using San Francisco as an example:  It's all free for you to use.

Here's an example of a market graph you can embed into your site that updates on its own.

US Median Sale Price vs Areas of Your Choice

Check out some of the graphs, charts, data, and information you can easily find and use to provide additional value to your site and visitors.  Most are download-able and easy to share via your favorite social media sites too.  There are also many different widgets and webtools available that will make it easy to get and give "live" real-time information and updates you can publish on your site or blog. The SFBayAreaBlog is an example I setup you can demo.

Just wanted to share this with you in case you're in search of more clients in 2011. Enjoy~

This is good stuff!  I had no idea it was there...was just getting ready to write a post about rent/buy affordability and presto! Zillow had the perfect graph showing how rental prices in my area have zoomed upward.  Thanks!

Hi Brad - This is a great post about some of the great Zillow features for the American market.  I know you are working on trying to get Zillow to Canadianize some features at some unknown time.  Hint, hint, hint.... :)

Hi Brad,

I love these widgets.  I'm going to work on a post that will include them in some small way and then I'll do it again and again and again.  I'm believing you when you say that this will help generate additional business for 2011!  That would be nice but then my time on AR will be more limited!  :(

Real estate market data is like one of the basic and important four food groups for your Blog or site.  Don't ever make your readers and clients go on a local area information diet~  :-)

I see you've updated your footer with a link to free widgets. Looks like there's some new widgets available. It's been awhile since I loaded up. Thanks for the tip!
