here in California many people who get involved in a real estate transaction sometimes feel it’s very scary because of the myriad of  paperwork that both the state and federal government require. So, as a fair warning if you haven’t sold or purchased a property yet in California, be prepared to be a little scared when you are confronted with what seems like an endless flow of required forms and disclosures.

San Diego Housing Traffic

San Diego Housing Traffic

The chart below shows the unique traffic to www.brokerforyou.com for September 2016.

Yes, in September brokerforyou.com generated over 25,400 unique visitors!

San Diego Housing Traffic

Many times various website owners quote traffic by saying how many hits their website generated in a month. if you look to the right column on this chart it does show the monthly hits and for September that was over 141,300. But, the reason I don’t quote that is because many hits could be generated by just one visitor. I’m not going to get into how hits are calculated here, except to say that anyone who is promoting their site  by saying how many hits it receives is really being misleading or very naïve.

The best way, to determine real visitors is by unique visitors, where one  unique IP address is counted in a 24-hour period. Read more »

San Diego County Realtor Expo 2016

San Diego County Realtor Expo 2016

9-13-16 at the San Diego convention Center.

I understand that a lot of the attendees could have been at various talks but, the main exhibit hall did not seem as crowded as in the past.

Plus, if you look at the video you’ll see there’s a huge amount of vendor exhibit tables unoccupied. Also, there seemed like there was plenty of additional space to add many more exhibitors.

Obviously, I don’t know how the numbers worked out for the Association or for the exhibitors that were there. But a day after the show I did call one of the exhibitors and asked for his impressions of the traffic this year. He said compared to 2015 the traffic seemed to be a lot less this year. Read more »
