According to the 2008 National Association of Realtors Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers, 32% of buyers in 2008 said they first learned of the home they purchased by seeing it on the Internet, up from 29% in 2007, and from just 2% in 1997. In 2008, 34% of buyers said that they first learned of the home they purchased through a real estate agent, compared with 34% in 2007 and 50% in 1997.

Will 2009 be for the first time — more buyers will find the home they purchase by seeing it first on the Internet rather than learning of it from a real estate agent?
