How Lakeland Fl Home Buyers Use Technology

90% of homebuyers use the internet to search for homes. But not all these buyers are glued on their screens searching on their computers. Nearly all home buyers today are mobile and even mobile applications have made it possible for buyers to search for homes. Being "mobile" doesn't necessarily mean these buyers are on the move, but it means they might just be sitting on their desks and using their smart phones before even opening their laptop or computers.
Almost 30% shop for homes on their smart phones while waiting in line, 27% are searching over dinner, and 26% are guests at a friend's home, searching to bide away their time.
A person makes 11 searches on average before making another move such as calling an agent, attending an open houses, or making 3D searches.
