Virtual Tours Add Social Networking Utility

According to the 2007 NAR Profile of Buyers and Sellers, 84% of all buyers and 87% of first time buyers use the internet as an information resource during their search for a home. In the 25-44 age group this number jumped to 91% of all home buyers. Also, according to the same survey, 33% of all buyers are now using social networking sites with 19% using them at least a few times a week.
