Buying or Selling Real Estate, Look Online, Then Call a Realtor

"There is no digital replacement for the human touch. No technology can meet all of someone's needs. It takes a real person."

This quote came from Rupert Murdoch. The communications magnate was commenting on his recent acquisition of Move Inc., operator of Murdoch said he believes that most people who begin their real estate search online eventually need human interaction and guidance, and facilitates those connections. "Move has a close relationship with the National Association of Realtors®, and I believe real estate agents are crucial to every home sale in America," he said.

The National Association of REALTORS® 2014 Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers supports Murdoch’s assertion. According to the report, although 92 percent of buyers use the internet in some way in their home search process, 88 percent of buyers and sellers used an agent in the process, and 98 percent of those viewed them as a useful information source. Professional Realtors know the local market and the sales process, and can provide valuable information beyond what’s available on online search engines.

The advice of a Realtor is even more important when buying a vacation home or investment property in a location outside of your home market. Newman-Dailey's Real Estate Division is consistently ranked among the top 10% of real estate companies in Destin according to the Emerald Coast Association of Realtors.
