Where Did The Buyer Find The House?

Where Did The Buyer Find The House?

In a report, Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers, by the National Association of Realtors (NAR) the NAR reported:

The majority of Buyers found the home of their dreams online, while less than 2% found it through newspaper ads.

Profile of Home Buyers and SellersWonder why the real estate advertising in the newspaper has decreased so much?  This is the reason why.  Newspapers don’t sell houses.  The majority of property buyers, 83% according to the NAR, purchased their homes through a real estate professional, and 88% of sellers used a real estate agent in their sales transaction.
