How did the 2016 homeowners surveyed first learn of the home that they purchased?
Studies by the National Association of Realtors® have shown the following:
- Those who search for homes on the internet are younger, wealthier and purchase more expensive homes than those who do not.
- Buyers benefit from the assistance of a real estate professional to find the right home for them, negotiate the terms of the sale and negotiate the best price.
- 88% of 2016 buyers purchased their home through a real estate agent or broker—a share that has steadily increased from 69% in 2001.
