Man, that little 2x5 square computer that fits in your pocket can do anything these days. It can call a car for you, it can track mileage, it can find the best deals, it can order food, and yes! It can help you find your next new home. People love to search for houses and check out home values on their phones. According to new Google research, guess how much time we invest doing it? The time we spend on our phones looking at houses is a bit amazing: An average of 55 minutes per visit to real estate apps, according to Google. Additionally, according to a Google survey:

  • About 69 percent of the people Google surveyed said “shopping for real estate was fun” on their phone and online.

  • So fun, that 64 percent kept checking out houses and home values after they purchased a home.

  • People start searching real estate sites an average of three years before they buy, says Google.

  • Only one in five folks checking out real estate apps and websites are actually in the market to buy a home.


Amazing, this time we live in! If you're in the market for a new home, we of course hope you will utilize this site of The Shields Team to shop local homes, but if you're looking at one of the other various sites on the web, call us if you find your dream home!
