(Video) 90% of Home Buyers Use the Internet, Social Media Power Tools

Dec 1, 2009 | By Mike Lyon

I’m going to try a new format and hope that you enjoy it. One of my biggest hurdles in creating content and sharing info on the blog is the process of getting it from my head to the written word. It is a serious challenge – plus I have to make sure my grammar is correct (I know you have seen the typos) 

With that in mind, I am going to be posting video blogs as a way to share concepts, ideas and tips. Let me know what you think. I also need your help developing a theme. Any brilliant ideas or suggestions would be much appreciated. Don’t be shy. Leave a comment and let me know your thoughts. 

Links and Info

Here is the link to the article summary from the NAR – It states that 90 percent use the Internet and, although buyers also use other resources, they generally start the search process online and then contact an agent.

Also, when buyers were asked where they first learned about the home  they purchased, 36 percent of buyers said a real estate agent; 36 percent the Internet and only 2 percent from a newspaper.

Tweetable News

How do you manage all your social networks? Here are the details on the recent development of Tweetdeck connecting with multiple sources. Details >>

Hootsuite, a site that allows you to delay postings and updates, is adding the ability to connect with Facebook and LinkedIn. Details >>

Shout Out

Finally, a great job to the NAHB on connecting to the industry. Nick Barron has his hands full but is doing a great job.
You can find all their sources to connect with here >>

Anything I missed, anything to add. Please leave a comment below. Thanks!
