Eugene, OR (PRWEB) October 30, 2011
In July 2011, IDX, Inc. and RealLead, LLC. surveyed thousands of Realtors and home buyers nationwide. The Home Buyer Survey focused on home buying “pain points”. The Realtor survey focused on the value of real estate websites and use of mobile marketing technology in the real estate market.
According to the Realtor survey of IDX Broker subscribers, over 65% confirmed that a real estate website integrated with IDX Broker, generated at least one recent real estate transaction.
“The Realtor survey points to the value of integrated IDX search to a segment of Realtors that actively track the source of a transaction. Not every Realtor® tracks this stuff. Many Realtors offer integrated IDX/MLS search simply because they know it makes them more competitive.” says Luke Walsh, General Manager of IDX, Inc.
According to the Home Buyer Survey, distributed by Caroline Cummings, Co-founder and C.E.O. of RealLead, LLC., approximately 86% of home buyers expect a very quick response from a Realtor. The majority expect a response within a few hours, with 44% expecting a response within the first 30 minutes.
“This survey provided us with a lot of great information about home buyers’ pain points. Response rate is immensely important to home buyers. This is an area where RealLead can help Offices and Agents by implementing and tracking a mobile marketing campaign for each of the Realtors’ listings,” says Cummings.
The Home Buyer Survey indicated that 52% of home buyers prefer to work with a Realtor that understands how to use the Internet and mobile marketing technology to help them buy or sell a home.
