Today’s 55-plus home buyers are armed with mobile phones, iPads, and social media tools, and they know how to use them. They look for how companies are rated and how people commented about their products and services. They are knowledgeable and informed when they enter the sales center, and the agent needs to be ready to demonstrate and deliver on what technology and social media has promised.
