Veterans and active-service members of the military turned to the web to search for homes for sale as the first step in the homebuying process, according to NAR’s Veterans and Active Military Home Buyers and Sellers Profile. In fact, 38% of veteran buyers and 40% of active-duty military looked online first, while 17% of veterans and 20% of active-service members contacted a real estate agent as the first step in their process.

Real estate agents are still an important part of home purchases for military homebuyers, though. According to the report, real estate agents were the most frequently used information source in the home search process.

Military homebuyers tend to search for homes for less time, too. Among all types of buyers, the length of a home search was 10 weeks, but military homebuyers searched for only eight weeks.
