In today’s real estate market, according to the 2009 National Association of REALTORS® Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers, home buyers are relying less on newspapers and open houses and are turning to more online resources in order to peruse homes for sale and to get home-buying information.
“First-time home buyers want to learn about the home buying process by reading online content, comparing notes with friends and family, and searching online for homes.” www.bhgrealestate.com
Currently, more than half of home buyers under the age 44 begin their search for a home online, and 60% are walking through the homes they see. Accofding to BHG Real Estate, 90% of home buyers today use the Internet to search for homes and are more likely to contact a real estate agent (89%) than buyers who do not use the Internet to search for homes (70%.)
