Sage Realty Highlights Increasing Number of Buyers Working with a Real Estate Agent to Locate Suitable Online Property Listings

Wayne, PA – May 2015 – Wayne, PA-based Sage Realty is now highlighting the increasing number of homebuyers finding properties alongside their real estate agent using online listings. The online listings marketplace has recently been in the news, with the acquisition of Move, the company behind Realtor.com, by News Corp. This purchase is set to place Realtor.com in a prominent position in the market and put more buyers in touch with qualified specialists in their local region.

The latest data shows that 90% of buyers who used the internet to search for property also purchased their home through a real estate agent. The data also shows that 43% of buyers now buy a home that they first located via the internet. There are two trends that remain clear – buyers are increasingly using the internet to find their homes, and they continue to depend on professional interaction with a real estate agent to complete the purchase process.

The team at Sage Realty works to assist clients with understanding the many benefits of reviewing online listings alongside a qualified real estate agent. As the industry continues to evolve, and Realtor.com gains in strength after its purchase by News Corp, more buyers will now have access to an invaluable tool in bridging the online and offline sectors of the real estate market. Realtor.com currently displays 98% of all for-sale properties listed in the U.S., and the vast majority of these listings are updated every 15 minutes. Realtor.com’s purchase will see the company become a prominent force in the market, helping thousands of buyers across the country expand their search area and find that ideal property through a trusted local real estate agent.
