With new technologies being released everyday people find themselves using more and more ways to be connected to internet. This has encouraged people to keep online almost 24/7 using different devices. In addition, around 74% of US population is expected to have at least one smartphone by the end of year 2018 while the number for the UAE is 85% which translates into a lot of devices that are constantly connected to the World Wide Web. Different studies say that the average adult uses at least 4 devices a day in order to be connected to internet.
This also has caused people to go directly to internet when they are looking to please any need. And this is especially true when we talk about housing. Most people, regardless of the generation, take their first step into looking for buying a house by getting into the internet. This was expressed by the National Association Realtors (NAR) through the NAR Research Resource Guide.
