Top 10 blogs

What mattered most to top industry executives this challenging year? One way to get a good read on the topics at the forefront of everyone’s minds in 2016 is to look at the top ten blogs on the CoreLogic Insights page for the year.

The most-read blog, by a wide margin, was one that compared the real cost of owning property across markets from all over the country. In addition, the blog audience was looking for vital information on mortgage payments, real estate values, days on market, defaults, and general economics.

There was even a little bit of psychology thrown in. One of the most-read blogs got inside the heads of millennials and the prospects for these debt-burdened young people to move out of their parents’ basements and finance real estate of their own—both through renting and homeownership.
