April 20, 2012 04:30PM

Miami and Fort Lauderdale are both among the most-searched-for cities by those looking to buy homes nationwide, the Miami Herald reported. Numbers from Realtor.com showed that Fort Lauderdale ranked 17th, and Miami ranked 18th. Another Florida metro area, Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater, was ranked fifth. That comes in line with data reported earlier this year by Trulia, which showed Florida as having seven of the top 10 metro areas in terms of online demand. [Miami Herald]
