I just came across this article by MarketWatch, regarding an increase in search traffic by potential buyers for real estate online. It’s great to see that there are potential buyers out there, keeping an eye on the market and looking for great condo deals.
Based on consumer search trends, real estate search is picking up inthe markets hit hardest by the recent economic conditions, indicating renewed consumer interest in these areas. Local markets with the greatest year-over-year increases in October searches included Las Vegas, Nevada (40.7%) and Miami, Florida(35.4%).
Approximately five percent of consumers said they plan to buy a home in the next 12 months, about three times the percentage that actually bought this year.
In today’s market, consumers need information and competitive analysis as they contemplate making a significant investment in real estate. NewCondosOnline.com remains the number one most visited site for new Condos and the company continues to offer the most comprehensive portal for new condos on the web.
While today’s challenging housing market has affected many, search activity on NewCondosOnline.com remains strong indicating that the desire for homeownership is alive and strong.
Take a look at this building. This is The Mark located in the heart of downtown Scottsdale Arizona.

Here is an excerpt about Willow Glen from San Jose Magazine…
From the message “Smile … You’re in Willow Glen” painted on one of its buildings to the community’s annual street festival, Dancin’ on the Avenue, passing through Willow Glen feels like visiting a small town. Keeping foot traffic flowing, small, locally owned bookstores host authors, coffee shops feature live music, stores offer children’s and adult art classes, and a Saturday farmers’ market serves as a neighborhood meeting point.
Much as some small towns do, the Willow Glen community has a gym and pool that offer high school students free basketball, volleyball, table tennis, weight training, and recreational swimming during the summer. People can also bike, run, or walk along the Los Gatos Creek Trail, and find stuff to do at Willow Glen’s numerous parks, including
Lincoln Glen Park, which features San Jose’s first playground designed for both children with and without physical disabilities.
At Willow Glen’s schools—a half-dozen elementary schools, amiddle school, and a high school—academic performance and student attendance have risen dramatically in recent years, and a record number of students are taking college-entrance tests and going to college. Willow Glen High School offers more Advanced Placement classes than any other high school in the San Jose Unified School District and has met its improvement goals on the state Academic Performance Index for the last three years.

In Atlanta, several new condo construction projects seek to remake the city’s landscape. The new condo developments aim to create neighborhoods in Atlanta that are just as walk able as some sections of New York and Chicago with easy access to nearby offices, retail, and restaurants.
The Residences at Lullwater Park might just have the best piece of Dirt in Atlanta! A perfect blend between downtown and suburban living. Located in the Historic Druid Hills – Virginia Highland neighborhoods, just 5 minutes to Midtown Atlanta, the Residences at Lullwater Park are a collection of surprisingly attainable ultra-luxurious homes in a gated community with the most modern finishes only found in the finest homes.
Although the new condo market has slowed nationally, it hasn’t halted in Atlanta. Strong growth in the Atlanta market will continue to fill the new condominiums. Two million new residents are expected to move to the Atlanta area in the next 25 years — which is roughly equal to most of the population of Nevada.
New Condos like The Residences at Lullwater Park are increasingly in demand by young professionals flooding Atlanta for employment and are being joined by "empty nesters" whose children have grown and moved out and by others who have finally had their fill of the long commutes from the outer ring of suburbs.
Don’t miss out on this real estate opportunity. Check out The Residences at Lullwater Park today and be a part of a more livable Atlanta.

New Condos Online brings you this stunning new development in Costa Rica: Hacienda Matapalo is located between Quepos and Domincal, which will soon be connected by the southern spur of the Costanera highway, and occupies 665 acres of prime land between the coast and the mountains. Rising to almost 2,000 feet above sea level, it includes a 125-acre nature preserve at its highest elevation to ensure the pristine local environment will forever remain part of this upscale development.
The gated community gives investors a choice of 1.25-acre sites for custom-designed homes, as well as single-family dwellings, villas, and condos, all with state-of-the- art connectivity and 24-hour security. Given the similarities of landscape and climate with the South Pacific, the architecture draws on local materials and renewable resources, inspired by Polynesian and Balinese design well suited to an indoor/outdoor lifestyle.
Currently available are:
‘The Polynesian’ two and threebedroom condos, completely detached from neighboring units and situated in four-story buildings with tropical forest views; ‘Las Floras’ freestanding single-family villas in configurations ranging up to 3,100 feet, three-bedroom homes over two stories; ‘Las Vistas’ low-density town-homes, all of which have incredible ocean views. Private homesites are also on offer for those who wish to build a custom residence in a choice of architectural styles.
The community center and ‘El Corazon’ clubhouse, with panoramic views over the Pacific, houses a variety of swimming pools, a fully equipped fitness center, sporting facilities and spa.
For those who prefer to swim in the ocean, Hacienda Matapalo’s own shuttle transports guests to its private beach club. And the private equestrian center means you can explore the forest trails on horseback, cooling off in waterfalls on the way.
Less than half a mile away from 25 miles of virgin coastline, close to Playa Linda, Playa Matapalo, and Playa Ventanas, and in an area where development will be strictly limited, Hacienda Matapalo has been identified by International Living Magazine as possibly the best investment opportunity in Costa Rica.
To date, almost one third of purchase here have been made via Individual Retirement Accounts (also known as Self-Directed IRAs). US retirees are free to undertake tax-free rollovers from existing retirement accounts to Self- Directed IRAs, whereupon they can invest in any form of real estate they wish. As you’d expect, there are some important rules and regulations to comply with to satisfy the IRS, but Michael Starkey, one of the developers, in an experienced financial planner and is available to counsel interested parties.
