What Caught the Attention Our Readers in 2017

Home Prices, Credit Availability and the Economy Drive Readership

Molly Boesel    |    Housing Trends

The numbers are in and our readers have spoken. We tallied up the readership on our top 10 most-read CoreLogic Insights blogs and found that top industry executives were very focused on the health of the real estate market, both nationally and in specific markets across the country this year.

The most-read blog, by a wide margin, was a text mining analysis of public listing information using word cloud which paired certain listing terms to higher sales prices. Word pairs like “quiet street,” “large backyard,” and “hardwood floors” were among terms which could be tied to higher sales prices. In addition, our audience also engaged with our economic outlooks, credit availability, and mortgage risk as prices continued their upward spiral.

We invite you to read these blogs now in case you missed them or would like to revisit the topic.

And the envelope, please... Here are the top ten most-read blogs (and video blogs) of the year:
