LANDTHINK Pulse: Desktop Most Commonly Used Device when Seaching Land for Sale

LANDTHINK Pulse: Desktop Most Commonly Used Device when Seaching Land for Sale

According to February’s LANDTHINK Pulse results, 45.42% of respondents indicated that their desktop computer was the device of choice when searching land for sale. Since the compact, lightweight laptops, smartphones and tablets hit the market- with their portability, increased power and performance- sales and use of the desktop computer has been on the decline.

Last month, the February Pulse asked: When searching land for sale, what device do you primarily use?

To our surprise, our informal online survey revealed that 45.42% of our audience used their desktop computer when searching land for sale. Coming in a close second, 41.83% of those responding said they used their laptop computer when searching for land. When buying a device, most people make a decision based on their specific needs and tasks that will need to be performed. Most of us couldn’t imagine life now without our smartphones, laptops and tablets, but there are obviously many tasks that are still best tackled using a desktop computer, as indicated by the Pulse results.

Here’s how the final results panned out:
