The Internet is the medium of choice… “Use of the Internet to search for a home has risen dramatically over time,increasing from only 2 % of buyers in 1995, 77 % in 2005 and 87% in 2007.” NAR (National Association of Realtors) The percentage of buyers who ﬁnd their Real Estate online is over 93% in 2011.

We now must develop an entire “Internet strategy” that will blanket the net.
