Americans are on the hunt for new homes — on the Internet, at least.
Google's real-estate search volume was up 65% in November compared with November 2011, perhaps another sign of life in the housing market. What are house hunters looking for? Google analyzed searches for eight house types for The Wall Street Journal, ranking the top states where people were searching property terms such as "Colonial," "ranch" or "craftsman."
The results, which tracked searches from November 2011 to November 2012, showed that many people keep to traditional regional preferences: The Craftsman is popular in the Northwest, while Tudors have appeal in New York. But a few surprises emerged: Connecticut beat out states such as Colorado in searches for ski houses, and "penthouse" got more searches in Florida than in New York.
Here's a breakdown of what feels most like home in different parts of the country.
Editor's note: Market inventory and median price were current at the time of the analysis in late 2012.
