Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers.  Realty Professionals  805-474-7040.  For the majority of home buyers, the purchase of real estate, typically their home is one of if not the largest financial transactions they will make in their entire life. Buyers purchase a home not only for the desire to own a home of their own, but also because of changes in jobs, family situations, and the need for a smaller or larger living area. The NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS®  conducts and annual survey of recent home buyers and sellers to provide an insight into detailed information about the buyers and sellers experiences about their transaction. Here you can find highlights from the 2012 report:
