Sometimes I see activity patterns in a certain area. For example, I have seen a handful of questions out of East Brunswick and surrounding area within the recent times. Perhaps another Q came from North Brunswick, or even New Brunswick.....all the Brunswicks border each other. I just answered your thread, then answered a Q about East Brunswick and flipping. (New Jersey). That is what prompted me to return here again to your thread. I was wondering about the surge in Q that came from this area. Please interpret the term â€œsurgeâ€ to be relative to other towns in New Jersey. There have not been that many Q from this area; just enough to stand out.
I wonder if there are friends, consumers, who mentioned Trulia to each other, and that might lead to Q coming from a given area. The Brunswicks are in NJ, and I have sold there, have MLS access, but it is not where I spend most of my time. For personal reasons I have spent inordinate amount of time there in the last few months. I easily notice when a Q comes up form any of the Brunswicks. I donâ€™t actually recall the content of the Brunswick questions, but none imprinted my mind as â€œsave the dayâ€ type Q & A.
I have told a lot of consumers about Trulia, and to my knowledge, none have ever logged on and posted. A few have mentioned to me that they went on the site and found it interesting, but no one has yet told me they participated. I've told them to say hi to me if they came online. Still waiting for that to happen. Other Pros may have suggested to associates, friends, and family to visit Trulia Voices. Maybe their contacts have visited and participated.
I don't have a link to Trulia on my website, but I know many RE Pros do. Pros may participate on Voices, others simply list property on Trulia. I have wondered if Trulia links placed on Proâ€™s sites contribute to Q coming from certain areas. I wish more Q would come from Rumson, as I would like to hear from consumers in the area and what they are thinking. To date, I know of one Q, and the person asked if anyone knew the owner of a particular boat that was docked here. Neither do I know of any Q from Red Bank, Little Silver, Monmouth Beach, or Middletown. Oops, take that back....there was a Q from Locust area of Middletown once. I donâ€™t know that I am capable of saving the day (LOL), but if I were going to do that, my first preference would be to do so in my backyard.
