23 News housing expert Steve Bois says as demand for homes in our area picks up realtors will have to cater to the needs of buyers and sellers through the internet. Bois adds one of the biggest changes he is seeing is house hunters are skipping opening houses and instead heading to the net to search. Many are using the web to screen their options and then decide on a few homes they want to go see. This means just simply putting a sign in front of your home might not do the trick.
Studies show nearly three out of four homebuyers now use the web as a tool when searching for a home.
