The governor’s stay-at-home order was issued on March 19th (red line), but showings had already been dropping steadily. Realtors were changed to essential workers on March 28th, but it doesn’t look like agents rushed back to work. The weekly average improved from -68.9% on the 28th to -57.3% yesterday. At least it’s heading in the right direction – we’d like to avoid a complete meltdown if possible.
On average it probably takes at least 2-3 showings minimum to procure a sale. Some homes sell after the first showing, and other take many more visits so averaging 2-3 before finding a buyer is optimistic – but in this era only the highly-motivated buyers are looking in person.
