According to the National Association of Realtors “Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers 2009”, 90 percent of buyers used the Internet as an information source in their home search, up 30 percentage points during the past six years. First-time buyers were even more likely to use the internet.

Also reported was that 47% of recent buyers were first-time buyers, 21% of recent home buyers were single females, and 10% were single males.

The housing market in Hutchinson, MN would be in line with these findings.
