In order to accomplish all three of these goals New Hampshire Seacoast sellers should realize the importance of using an experienced local Realtor.

Technology has changed the behavior of buyers during the home buying process. The internet continues to play an ever-increasing role for home buyers in the home search process. “Nine in 10 buyers used the internet at some point while looking for a home” Source: National Association of Realtors 2014 Profile of Home Buyers & Sellers

However, the report also revealed that for the second year in a row “96% percent of buyers that used the internet when searching for a home purchased their home through either a real estate agent/broker or from a builder or builder’s agent”

Buyers search for a home online but then depend on an agent to find the actual home they will buy (53%) or negotiate the terms of the sale & price (31%) or understand the process (63%).

Stephen Phillips, the Chief Operating Officer for HSF Affiliates LLC, put it best:

“Home buyers are more informed than ever with their Internet searches and ongoing research; however, there’s a critical need to transform that information into analysis and advice that helps consumers make the best home-buying and selling decisions.”

The plethora of information now available has resulted in an increase in the percentage of buyers that reach out to real estate professionals to “connect the dots”. This is obvious as the percentage of overall buyers who used an agent to buy their home has steadily increased from 69% in 2001. 

No matter if you have found your dream house on the Internet or with a help of an agent, one thing remains the same. You should run a house inspection. Reading about what is included in a Brisbane building inspection can give you the general idea how to inspect a house. You can also hire a building inspector to do that.
