How Tech is Helping Buyers Navigate the Home Search Process
In This Article

Technology is changing every aspect of our lives, including how we search for and buy homes. With access to technology, buyers can view listings that are on the market and look at detailed photos and descriptions of properties without actually being there.

A recent survey from revealed that home buyers are still considering moving forward with the home buying process, even if they can’t see the home in-person. While they still prefer to physically see a home, buyers are open to using technology during their home search process.

Technology can help buyers save a lot of time and hassle by using platforms to “view” properties virtually before they decide which ones to visit in person. And with the current health crisis making things more difficult for buyers to be out and about checking out homes, technology is certainly coming in handy as a way for them to still keep the home search process going.

Here are the tech specs buyers think are most helpful in today’s home search process.

  • 61% – Taking a virtual tour of homes on the market.
  • 58% – Checking out accurate and detailed listing information using technology.
  • 53% – Looking at accurate and detailed neighborhood information.
  • 51% – Checking out high-quality listing photos.
  • 39% – Participating in video chat walk-throughs of homes with their agent or landlord.

Certainly, technology is a home buyer’s friend, especially in this day and age.
