Real Estate, Generation Y, and the Tablet Technology Tidal Wave

Posted: November 7, 2012 in REAL ESTATE MARKETING, Real Estate News, Real Estate Tips

If you have not figured it out yet I love BizBrag and I subscribe to their blog.

Their most recent post I found so interesting.  It is about the the tablet shopper revolution.  Did you know by the end of this year over 60 million Americans will own a tablet. Right now 19% of U.S consumers own a tablet. That is up 10% since this time last year!!  That is crazy fast growth!!  Tablet use has increased over 300% since last year and tablets are growing 10 times faster than SMART PHONES!! Holy Cow!!

The age group with the highest tablet ownership is 18-34 years. Gen Y anyone!  For those of you in Real Estate that is your next big demographic moving into home ownership.  Four out of ten buyers are first time home buyers and they are gen y’ers (see graph below). Yes, I know that rhymes!.

So, point is if you are in Real Estate and plan on hanging around, I suggest you get a tablet.  Call me and I will show you how to apply it to your real estate business.

    I’ve had my tablet for almost a year, and I can’t imagine effectively servicing my clients without it! Great post.

    • Thanks John. Great testimonial! It truly is great technology, even an unorganized person looks organized when all you are carrying around is a tablet. In the “OLD Days”(two years ago, lol) I had papers coming out of my ears!
