Northeast Region Sees Third Consecutive Month of Increased Year-Over-Year Buyer Traffic in July as U.S. Showing Activity Continues to Stabilize

June's Northeast Region Buyer Traffic Shows Modest Improvement as Demand in Other Areas Remains Sluggish, Consistent with Seasonal Patterns
Modest Year-Over-Year Dips in Buyer Traffic Seen in Three of Four U.S. Regions July 24, 2019 – For the second consecutive month, the Northeast Region reported a more modest year-over-year increase in buyer traffic while the rest of the U.S. saw signs of showing activity stabilizing, according to the latest ShowingTime Showing Index® report. The 0.9 percent year-over-year increase in the Northeast is a positive sign for the region that had, until May, seen a full year of slower activity. Though the West, South and Midwest regions each saw drops in year-over-year activity, the declines were more modest compared to prior months. The West Region's 5.8 percent decline is the smallest percentage decline in the region for more than a year, while the South's 1.5 percent dip is the lowest since September 2018 – the last time the region saw a year-over-year increase in buyer activity. "Year-over-year showing traffic continues to stabilize, as June's overall activity was in line with June 2018 while the Northeast Region recorded a modest increase," said ShowingTime Chief Analytics Officer Daniil Cherkasskiy. "Activity in the South and Midwest remains slightly slower than in 2018, though there is more buyer activity in the lower price quartiles of the market. Pricier homes continue to see less traffic compared to the same time last year."

The diminished showing activity was felt in every region throughout the country, most notably in the West, where for the 13th consecutive month showings declined on a year over year basis. "Showing activity stabilized and is holding steady, but it is still slightly off from the higher levels registered in 2018," said ShowingTime Chief Analytics Officer Daniil Cherkasskiy.

Sellers Hope for a Spring Thaw as Sluggish February Real Estate Showing Activity Continues Seven-Month Decline Foretelling a Buyer's Market

January's 9% Drop in Real Estate Showing Activity Marks 6th Consecutive Month of Year-Over-Year Declines
Sluggishness portends slower spring showing and sales activity in key markets across U.S. Feb. 21, 2019 – If January is any indication, home sellers are bracing themselves for a tenuous start to 2019, as the first month of the year saw a nine percent drop across the U.S. in year-over-year residential showing activity, according to data from the ShowingTime Showing Index®. In a notable contrast to January 2018, when the 12-month average year-over-year increase in showing traffic nationwide was 7.7 percent, January 2019 saw the 12-month average decline to almost one percent. The decrease in showing activity has been felt throughout the country but most noticeably in the West Region, which experienced an 18.8 percent year-over-year drop last month. The Midwest Region recorded a year-over-year decline of 12.4 percent in January, with the South Region not far behind with a year-over-year drop of 11.5 percent. The Northeast Region saw a more modest drop of 2.4 percent in January. "Showing traffic continues to subside from last year's impressive heights," said ShowingTime Chief Analytics Officer Daniil Cherkasskiy. "In January, we did not see an influx of home shoppers to reverse year-over-year declines in showings, which suggests that we may see slower traffic this spring compared to last year."

Potential Home Buyers Lose Interest as Showing Activity Drops Broadly with Consecutive Monthly Declines; Trend Likely to Continue into 2019
South Region records second month of decreasing activity vs. 2017, while the West, Midwest and Northeast continue to report reduced showing activity compared to 2017's record numbers Dec. 21, 2018, Chicago, IL – Buyer traffic across the U.S. declined 5.4 percent year over year in November, continuing its decline over the prior year and marking the second month in a row showing activity was down in each region and in the U.S. as a whole, according to the ShowingTime Showing Index®. The West Region had the biggest year-over-year decline, with November showing traffic off 12.4 percent vs. November 2017. The Midwest was next with an 8.4 percent year-over-year decline, its fourth consecutive month of decreasing demand. The South Region dropped 5.0 percent, while the Northeast declined 2.0 percent. "We are ending the year with demand going down year over year across the U.S., particularly in the West and the Midwest," said ShowingTime Chief Analytics Officer Daniil Cherkasskiy. "It's important to be careful when looking at showing traffic in the slow season, but the trends we observed in 2018 point to a further slowdown in demand in 2019's busy season. That should relieve upward pressure on home prices and possibly lead to a buildup of inventory."

Low Inventory and High Prices Cause Showing Traffic to Level Off in Parts of the U.S.
Homebuyer showings decline in the West and Northeast, cool in the Midwest; South increases again Aug. 22, 2018, Chicago, IL – As high home prices and a continued inventory shortage in many markets have contributed to the residential real estate industry forecasting a slowdown, the July 2018 ShowingTime Showing Index® revealed waning showing traffic in some regions of the U.S. Showing activity throughout the country increased by 0.3 percent year over year in July, the third consecutive month that the U.S. ShowingTime Showing Index recorded buyer interest decelerating compared to the previous year. The June 2018 figures revealed a 0.0 percent change in showing traffic from 2017, while May showed a 1.2 percent year-over-year increase. The 12-month average year-over-year increase was 4.6 percent. The slowdown has been particularly apparent in western markets where inventory remains tight, ShowingTime Chief Analytics Officer Daniil Cherkasskiy said, as showing activity in the West Region has declined for six consecutive months and was down 6.5 percent compared to last year at this time. The Northeast Region has also experienced a run of consecutive monthly year-over-year decreases, with showing activity declining by 2.0 percent compared to last year. "The ShowingTime Showing Index has been forecasting a slowdown for the past few months due to showing activity remaining relatively steady or lower compared to last year, which has been in large part affected by lower inventory in several major markets in the West Region," Cherkasskiy said. "That trend now appears to be impacting some areas of the Northeast, as well." Buyer interest remains high in the South Region, however, which has experienced year-over-year increases for 10 straight months and saw showing traffic increase 4.6 percent compared to last July. The Midwest Region showed a slight 0.6 percent year-over-year increase.

Through Single Sign On, GEPAR members will be able to log on to Showing Suite and schedule showings directly in the MLS. A "Schedule a Showing" button will be on each listing providing access the showing calendar linked to each agent's account.

Listing agents can enable the Showing Calendar on their listings, block unavailable showing times, and confirm appointments with all parties involved via phone, text, or email. Buyer's agents can schedule showings in the MLS, manage buyers in their Showing Suite account, and view all confirmed showings, unconfirmed showings and showing questions on the Showing Clipboard.

Instructions from the listing agent, personal reminders, and notes for the client are displayed next to each "road map". This can all be printed, emailed to each party involved, or shared through the Showing Note app. The Showing Note app lets buyer's agents share all the information from showings with their clients. Like EVERNOTE for showings, this paperless tool shows listing information as well as creates a space for those involved in the showing to take pictures, notes, and videos and share it all with each other.

Ocala/Marion County Association of REALTORS® (OMCAR) will provide its members with Showing Suite's MLS showing scheduling system. Agents that subscribe to OMCAR's MLS will soon have access to the state of the art tools Showing Suite has developed for real estate agents. "Ocala/Marion County Association of REALTORS®/Ocala MLS has a long history of providing quality real estate services to its clients. We pride ourselves in making our clients' success our top priority. Our REALTORS® are some of the best and we are always looking for opportunities to provide the best tools for them. Showing Suite's MLS solution allows us the flexibility to cater to each member while giving the functionality of a proven real estate showing system." - Gayle Lowry, 2015 MLS President OMCAR members will be able to log on to their Showing Suite account within their MLS platform through Single Sign On and schedule showings directly in the MLS. A "Schedule a Showing" button will be on each listing. Showing Suite provides both buyers' agents and listing agents a free account. Buyers' agents can schedule a showing right on the listing where they will have the option to create a showing tour, ask the listing agent questions, schedule more showings, re-arrange showings, and map the showing tour. In the Showing Note app agents can share all this information with their clients without printing anything. Showing Note is a free mobile app that allows buyers to access all the information their agent shares with them, and take photos, videos, and notes at each listing. Since everything is saved in one place, they don't have to worry about keeping track of each listing or try to remember everything when it comes time to make a decision. If a client likes a particular listing they can share their saved Showing Note content with fellow collaborators. Listing agents also have free features which allow them to decide who can schedule showings on their listings and how each party will get notified. When an agent or buyer schedules a showing on their listing it can trigger an automatic showing request email that is sent to confirm the appointment or suggest a different time. Whether its the seller, buyer, listing agent or buyers' agent, these emails can be sent to any combination of parties that need confirmation for the showing. Agents that upgrade to the full paid version of Showing Suite have access to the wide breadth of award winning systems developed specifically for real estate. In Showing Suite Ultimate, agents can gather feedback from listings with Showing Suite's Home Feedback system, coordinate their schedule with the Showing Calendar, take advantage of the built in Followup CRM system, evaluate performance with satisfaction surveys, and access everything on the go with the Showing Suite mobile app to manage showings and appointments on the go. An enhanced showing schedule system called Showing Robot is also an option for listing agents to enable on their listings and provides a more direct means of appointment scheduling through texts and phone calls in addition to emails. Showing Robot provides the listing agent with a local phone number and serves as a built in sign rider text message marketing system for their listings. This Text2Show service ensures that buyers will be able to schedule showings right when they see the house and sign rider. Buyers can choose a time for their showing, view the mobile property flyer, and request an immediate showing by clicking the InstaShow button if they want to see the listing right away. Agents save time and money by not having to subscribe to an outside sign rider marketing system and using the one already available in their Showing Suite account.

Homesnap Pro is now also available to members of The MLS™/CLAW and Palm Springs Regional Association of REALTORS®, and will soon be available to agents in the Greater El Paso Association of REALTORS®. New MLSs are being added to Homesnap Pro's footprint each month. "We are very excited about this integration and look forward to launching this collaborative service for MRIS customers," said ShowingTime President Michael Lane. "ShowingTime for the MLS, available in more than 75 MLSs across the country, helps agents remove some of the obstacles to showing a home; adding the 'Schedule a Showing' button to Homesnap Pro makes perfect sense to streamline the scheduling process further," he added. "Homesnap Pro gives agents unprecedented access to their MLS while in the field and makes them more productive and efficient. Adding ShowingTime to Homesnap Pro puts the next logical step in place: scheduling a showing with just a tap," said Homesnap CEO Guy Wolcott. "We expect this collaboration between ShowingTime and Homesnap to provide our customers with a glimpse into next generation tools. The innovative functionality of Homesnap Pro, combined with the ability to schedule showings through ShowingTime, furthers our goal to meet and exceed the needs of today's busy real estate professionals," said MRIS President and CEO David Charron. "It is aligned with our mission to encourage innovation in the broker and agent community," he added. ShowingTime for the MLS was launched in MRIS in 2013 to provide agents with time-saving tools to schedule showings and get showings on their own listings, enabling them to provide great service to buyers and sellers. Listing agents can post showing instructions and enter available hours on an interactive appointment calendar to indicate when a listing can be shown; showing agents can request showings by clicking the 'Schedule a Showing' button next to listings. Showing notifications are routed instantly to keep everyone informed. ShowingTime also provides the only 24/7 appointment center service in real estate, along with software for brokerages that manage showings and feedback at the front desk.

Hundreds of thousands of listings are currently being handled by the Appointment Center, which answers calls in 12 seconds or less, then works quickly and efficiently to confirm showings. "The Appointment Center adds measurable efficiencies to the appointment scheduling process, and allows agents to focus their efforts on winning and selling listings," Lane said. "With our mobile app, the confirmation process is extremely fast, equipping agents to request, confirm, decline or reschedule appointments from wherever they are. Customizable feedback leads to better response rates, and allows sellers to view their own listing activity website," he added.

Its technology – for agents, offices, associations and MLSs – streamlines the appointment scheduling process, resulting in quicker showing confirmations and less phone tag.
