How Do You Search for Homes?

Has the way you Search for Homes changed…

There is certainly no avoiding the technology we have at our fingertips. Everyday, I see young and old alike with their eyes firmly affixed on their mobile devices, cell phones and tablets! And with the advent of all these wonderful tools, REALTORS® are taking notice.

The Paradigm Shift of the way we Search for Homes

In a great report (link below), the National Association of REALTORS® compiled some fantastic numbers that truly show that we live in an online world! The way we search for homes has gone digital. In their report, NAR highlights what many of us in the industry already know…folks start their search for homes online.

So, what is your favorite means to search for homes?

The survey conducted by NAR with input from Google is undeniable. In fact, I believe that as a REALTOR®, having an online presence and in particular, a website with a nice home search on it is an absolute must! 

I’m fortunate that my site is equipped with what I need to serve my clients all day long. Truth is, I’ve been able to build many relationships and ultimately help a good many of those buy, sell and invest in real estate. And I can trace it all back to having a strong web presence.
