Tulsa in Top 10 Among Out of Town Online House Hunters

The state of Florida may dominate the list of most desired properties list, with 7 out of 10, but popular metros outside the Sunshine State include Tulsa, Okla., the Riverside-San Bernadino-Ontario area of California, and South Carolina’s Charleston-North Charleston-Summerville region.

Trulia calculated the top metro areas where locals are looking elsewhere for real estate. By calculating the ratio of outbound listing views to local listings, they arrived at a list of mostly bigger (and comparatively more expensive) cities where residents are searching for a way out.

But whether prospective homebuyers are looking to buy in or get out, what’s driving their search behavior is affordability. That said, today’s looky-loos may not necessary become tomorrow’s buyers — tight credit and larger down-payment requirements may stop many house-hunters in their tracks. When the economy begins to shift, however, expect many of these markets to reap the benefits of pent-up demand.

Chart below shows the Top 10 of where demand among online house hunters is strongest.
