That means, like a lot of dwellers of the five boroughs, I spend a disproportionate amount of time thinking about real estate, whether griping about too-high rents for tiny apartments or the erection of another steel-heavy skyscraper in my neighborhood.

“Beautiful,” “ocean views,” “mountain views” and “gated community” are among the most popular keywords used to advertise homes online to West Coast home buyers, a recent study shows. Nationwide, “beautiful” was the most frequent word in listings last year, according to a study of 300,000 listings conducted last year by Point2Homes, an online listing and property data portal. “Hardwood floors” took the No. 2 spot and “stainless-steel appliances” came in third.
