Florida has seven of the 10 metropolitan areas nationwide with the most online demand for homes, according to Trulia, the Sun Sentinel reported. Trulia’s data measures real estate searches. Palm Beach County and Broward County are numbers six and seven on the list. “Although locals in Florida, inland California and the Southwest are suffering from high foreclosure rates and lost equity, huge price declines since the height of the housing bubble have drawn house hunters from across the country,” said Jed Kolko, chief economist at Trulia.
