London, United Kingdom – 2014, June – A recent survey conducted by myhomemove.com, the U.K.’s leading provider of conveyancing services, indicated that 83 percent of estate agents felt that people were turning to the Internet more and more to find their next home. Especially in comparison to five years ago.
In fact, the study also indicated that as high as 65 percent of agents have said that in the future agents will be operating online only, leaving the days of high street branches behind them. This correlates with the figure that only about 31 percent of agents said that there was even still a need for high street branches.
There are a number of reasons why buyers have turned to the Internet as a resource for their estates purchases. These include convenience and ease of access. Interestingly, about 64 percent of those in the study said that traditional marketing avenues like newspapers were becoming more and more irrelevant.
Lynne McArthur, Director of MoovRight.co.uk, commented "With statistics like these, it’s become vital that sellers use the Internet to reach buyers."
"Additionally, using quality online resources is key. Approximately 52 percent of buyers in this study said that online appearance was important and that they had ruled out properties based solely on appearance. We understand this, and are constantly making improvements to our site so that our buyers maintain a competitive edge."
