The Rich Ayers Team implements a comprehensive "21 Point Digital and Print Marketing Plan" for all of our clients. According to the National Association of Realtors most recent "Real Estate in the Digital Age - 2017 Report", 95% of Home Buyers used the internet in their home search.
However, the report also revealed that 92% 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.
Only 2% purchased their home directly from a seller whom the buyer didn’t know.
Keeping those statistics in mind along with a whitepaper created by NAR and Google called "The Digital House Hunt: Consumer and Market Trends in Real Estate", The Rich Ayers Team places the majority of their marketing effort into the DIGITAL realm.
