georgia: Happy Holidays from Help-U-Sell North Metro, Alpharetta GA - 12/24/06 12:37 PM
It's Christmas Eve...soon to be the year 2007. My first year in Real Estate has been interesting to say the least.

georgia: It's a simple question(s)....right? - 12/12/06 06:01 AM
Where does search start and end? 
In multiple inquiries, is a consumer more likely to go to (who states that 75% +/- of all consumers start searching online before they buy property) or to a search engine?
When we say consumers are more tech savvy, does this mean they search keywords AND/OR blogs?
I would love to know the percentages of those who, after they started thier first search, go about it the same way a second or third time...or if when they go back online a second or third time, they go straight to a branded source. (Like or
