Buyer Traffic Remains High This Fall ☘ Hoey Team ☘ eXp Realty
Dated: December 11 2019
The weather may be getting chillier in many parts of the country, but that hasn’t deterred potential home buyers from touring homes for sale. Buyer traffic in October saw an uptick in all four major regions of the U.S. and also marked the first annual increase fir the month since 2017, according to the latest ShowingTime Showing Index report.
Overall, buyer traffic increased 5.5% year over year in October, the largest increase since March 2018. The South region saw the biggest uptick with a 10.8% year-over-year increase, ShowingTime’s data showed.
“We are seeing expected seasonal slowdowns in October, although this fall continues to be more active than last year in terms of showing traffic,” says Daniil Cherkasskiy, ShowingTime chief analytics officer. “The increase in showing activity in both the South and West regions is noteworthy given that both had previously reported nearly year-long drops in traffic prior to August.”
Lower mortgage rates may be drawing buyers out. Freddie Mac reported that the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage averaged 3.68% this week, down from 4.75% a year ago.
On average, home buyers tour a median of nine homes and look for a house over 10 weeks before they buy, according to the 2019 Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers report, produced by the National Association of REALTORS®.
The ShowingTime Showing Index is compiled using data from property showings scheduled using ShowingTime products and services. The service facilitates more than 4 million showings each month.
