Finding NY Real Estate: For more and more buyers, it means looking for apartments online...

Looking for new york luxury apartments online... in other words, you've come to the right place. According to the 2008 NAR Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers, the percentage of people who find new homes by looking online grows every year. Only ten scant years ago, just 4% of buyers found buys via the web. Twice as many found places by using a search tool called "newspapers," whatever those are. In the near future, searching online will become the most common way to find real estate. How could anything ever beat word-of-mouth? Well, if you think about it, word-of-mouth is going online itself anyway... blogs, Twitter, Facebook, and on and on. Sure, FINDING new places online is easier than ever, but what about the REST of the process? There's a lot more to it than just pointing and clicking, that's for sure. That's where your broker comes in. We're just saying... if you're thinking about looking for a new place in NYC, make the web work for you. Combine the best of both worlds by dealing with a broker who knows Manhattan AND can help you use the web to maximum advantage. Source: CleanSlate
