Arm­chair browsers need to get real

Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

LAT­EST web­site statis­tics from Carter Jonas sug­gest that Mon­day is the busiest day for house hunt­ing on­line, while Satur­day is the qui­etest.

Fig­ures con­formed to the tra­di­tional sea­sonal pat­tern with ac­tiv­ity lev­els high in the spring and late sum­mer and searches tail­ing off to­wards the end of the au­tumn. Spikes of in­ter­est were scat­tered across spe­cific days in the lat­ter part of Novem­ber and early De­cem­ber 2010. The data also showed that Christ­mas was a pop­u­lar time for vir­tu­ial view­ings.

But Tony Wright, part­ner at Carter Jonas in York­shire, says: “Arm­chair view­ing is still no re­place­ment for good, per­sonal, lo­cal knowl­edge and ac­tu­ally set­ting foot in­side a prop­erty for sale.”
