Default Fine and Country property survey - weird......

What do you make of this? As far as I can tell, the survey simply counts the number of 'hits' and 'visits' to each location page on the website, and assumes they are exactly where people want to move to....... so if there are twice as many 'hits' on, say, the Greens page than on the Springs page, the Greens will be twice as popular............

According to the findings, both buyers and renters are moving out of traditional residential hubs to areas such as the Jumeirah Lake Towers, The Springs and Discovery Gardens, with new communities high on priority list for both buyers and renters.

The findings were based on approximately 500,000 unique page visits to the website during the month of Feb'09. This highlights the current activity in the Dubai real estate market, despite the slowdown.

to me it highlights people checking if rents are dropping so they can use them as a comparison, not necessarily to move there? however I am guilty of checking The Lakes availability on Dubizzle everyday
