Finding the Right Home is Challenging Without a Guide
[quote_box author=”National Association of REALTORS ” profession=”2013 Survey of Home Buyers and Sellers”]For more than half of buyers finding the right home was the most difficult step in the home buying process.
This is not to say you can’t be successful going the do-it-yourself route. You can.
[blockquote]But if you want to save time and reduce stress and frustration, a guide to the home buying process can bring real benefits.[/blockquote]
The do-it-yourself route
Increasingly buyers are using the Internet in their search for a home. Nine out of 10 buyers used the internet at some point while looking for a home. For 56-percent of home buyers the Internet was their first step in the home buying process. The first step for 42-percent of buyers was to look for properties online; an additional 14-percent their first step was to look online for information about the home buying process. Online websites are the single most important source of information with 89-percent of home buyers stating this as a source of information.

[/quote_right]According to a survey by the California Association of Realtors, the home buying process begins long before buyers actually contact an agent. On average, buyers spent nearly six months considering a home purchase in 2013 prior to contacting a real estate agent; an amazing increase in time from the average of 12.2 weeks in 2012. Most of this time is spent in investigating homes and neighborhoods.
