More Buyers Looking

Yes, it’s Spring, which is a seasonally busy time of year. And yes, there are a lot of steps in between someone looking at a home, and deciding to buy it. And — one more “yes” — a good chunk of the inventory that prospective Buyers are checking out consists of foreclosures and short sales.

Still, it’s good news when my office’s weekly showing log registers its highest number — almost 250 — since September, 2006.

That’s especially significant given that the office’s number of active listings, around 100, has remained relatively constant during that interval. (My office, Edina Realty City Lakes, is near Minneapolis’ Lake Calhoun, and has about 60 full-time Realtors.)

Will those showings turn into closed sales?

Stay tuned . .
