“Home showing activity was up again nationwide with a 4.6 percent rise in traffic, as the traditionally slow fall season began with a marked boost in buyer interest.”
Buyers clearly have the right idea, as mortgage rates have dropped over a full percentage point since the fall of 2018. They’ve hovered in a historically low range since this summer, making the overall cost of homeownership significantly more attractive and affordable.
Here’s the breakdown of how ShowingTime reports current buyer traffic patterns across the country:
“TheWest Region, which until August had experienced 18 consecutive months of flagging home buyer traffic, lead the four regions in year-over-year improvement with an 8.9 percent increase in buyer activity.
The Southfollowed with a 6.4 percent increase, the largest such improvement in the region since April 2018, with theNortheast Region’s5.6 percent increase the next largest among the four regions.
With ShowingTime reporting “nationwide growth for the second consecutive month, a first since December 2017 – January 2018”, it’s one more reason why selling your house this winter is the way to go. List while buyers are on the market, before competition with other sellers pops up in your neighborhood.
If you’re thinking of waiting until spring to sell, think again! Let’s get together to discuss listing your house now while buyer traffic is actively surging throughout the country.

"Jacob is extremely professional, reliable, and honestly a no-brainer to use as your agent. I couldn't have asked for a better experience and will 100% use him next time we are buying or selling a home.
Meeting Jacob for the first time as first-time home buyers was nerve-wracking, not knowing what to expect from the process, but Jacob answered our questions so well and made us feel so comfortable that going with him as our agent was a no-brainer."
