Know These Numbers If You Are Thinking About Selling Your Home

If you are thinking about selling your home in Woodbridge Virginia you need to know some numbers about home buyers and how they interact with the internet when they shop for homes.


Buyers perform two types of searches for homes: Virtual searches and physical searches.  Buyers typically perform virtual searches first, then homes that make the cut win physical showings.

Last year, roughly 83% of home buyers went to the internet first when they began shopping for a home. In 2014 the percentage of buyers who turn to the internet to begin their home search is up to 92%.

Buyers are still linking up with REALTORS to help them shop for homes. Buyers quickly discover that REALTORS bring a lot of benefits to the table when buyers are shopping for a home.  For example, REALTORS, can assist buyers with comparable sales when making an offer on a home.  REALTORS can bring negotiating skills to the transaction.

Video tours of houses are more important than ever.  70% of buyers tend to take physical showings of homes that they have seen with virtual showings in videos online.  If your house is listed, you need to have a video online.  Please be sure any valuable accessories in your house are packed and out of sight.

70% of home buyers actively search for homes on mobile devices such as phones and tablets.  Make sure you hire a listing agent who has the tools to publish your listing on mobile platforms.  Not all agents are alike.  ASK, ASK, ASK.

59% of relocating senior executives would rather watch videos of houses than read text about houses.  So if you are selling a home in the upper price range, you absolutely need to have a video of your house on your listing, and in all of your online marketing.  Be sure you ask prospective agents if your video will be featured on ALL of your online marketing.

75% of buyers walk through houses they find in online searches.  They took a virtual tour of the home first, then took a physical search.
