How Buyers Find the Home They Purchase

Home buyers may use several information sources in their search process. But they are most likely to find the home they actually purchase through a real estate professional with the other major two sources being the internet and yard signs. The trend in using the internet has shot up 27% over the last five years. Source: NAR
