Survey Shows Mobile Searches Lead House Hunters to Realtors

The popularity and convenience of smart phones is changing the way people communicate and the way they shop, including for homes and condos. Smart phone users generally begin their search for a home in Destin, the Beaches of South Walton or Panama City Beach by searching for area real estate listings on their phones. Most Destin Realtors now have mobile websites that allow house hunters to find and view listings from their phones and are employing other devices designed to aid smart phone house hunters.

For sale signs, emails and tweets often include QR codes that allow smart phone users to obtain detailed property information and photos about a home and even schedule an appointment with a real estate agent simply by swiping their phone over the code. It’s the modern way to house hunt. Home buyers can peruse Destin home listings, compare features and floor plans, map locations and investigate neighborhoods from their phones whenever they have a spare moment. 
Home buyers appreciate the convenience and flexibility tech-savvy Destin Realtors offer. According to a new survey conducted by The Real Estate Book, 68% of home buyers who used a smart phone to hunt for a new home contacted a real estate agent to request a showing of a home they originally viewed on their phone. Experienced Destin Realtors that employ the latest technology make house hunting more convenient and more efficient for buyers, helping them to focus more quickly on features they are looking for and minimizing the amount of time spent house hunting. High tech Destin Realtors also benefit home sellers by maximizing their home’s exposure to potential buyers.
