Showing Traffic Falls: Sellers Hope for a Spring Thaw

The traditionally busy spring home buying season can’t come soon enough for home sellers across the country as February continued the trend of year-over-year declines in showing activity, according to data from the ShowingTime Showing Index®.

Marking the seventh consecutive month of year-over-year decreases, February saw national showing activity drop 9.3 percent, with the West Region reporting the biggest decline at 16.8 percent. The West’s 12-month average percentage change was -11.7 percent. The South Region saw an 11.3 percent year-over-year decline, followed by the Midwest Region (-10.5 percent) and Northeast Region (-5.5 percent).

“Showing activity remained slow in February, furthering the notion that the historically busy spring selling season may see less traffic than is typical,” said ShowingTime Chief Analytics Officer Daniil Cherkasskiy. “These conditions may prove to be beneficial for home buyers, however, as the greater available inventory signals a strong buyer’s market.”

The ShowingTime Showing Index, the first of its kind in the residential real estate industry, is compiled using data from property showings scheduled across the country on listings using ShowingTime products and services, providing a benchmark to track buyer demand. ShowingTime facilitates more than four million showings each month.

Released monthly, the Showing Index tracks the average number of appointments received on active listings during the month. Local MLS indices are also available for select markets and are distributed to MLS and association leadership.
