That is what I am hearing. I received an email yesterday that urged me as a real estate agent to target first time home buyers.
I clicked on the link to the sender's site which of course was willing to sell me some other services. There was a summary of the National Association of Realtors Profiles of Home Buyers & Sellers, 2008.
Back to first time home buyers…. Why target them?
- No house to sell! They are not tied down to a property that may or may not sell.
- Ability to make a decision now.
- Almost 40% of all home purchases made by first time buyers (reason enough).
How do you target a first time home buyer? Work with an agent who uses the Internet to market! Over 90% of first time buyers used the Internet to search for their home and almost 40% found the home on the Internet!
Selling in the Viera, Rockledge and Suntree area of Brevard County Florida? Call me. I would welcome a chance to discuss how I can assist you. [You did find me on the Internet.]
If you are a first time home buyer in Viera and Rockledge, call me. The process may seem daunting but it is not when you have help from a licensed Realtor. And remember, buyers do not pay the agent - the seller does!
