What’s Behind It?
The Edina Realty – City Lakes front desk is reporting a bump in walk-in traffic the last few weeks.
A “walk-in” is exactly that: someone who walks in off the street and needs a Realtor to help them buy or sell a house — preferably both.
If it were a bit later into the Spring housing market, I’d ascribe it to quickening activity.
There’s some of that, but I suspect it has at least as much to do with Realtor attrition.
A couple years ago, when everyone and their brother was selling homes . . . you didn’t have to go very far to find a Realtor.
Today, with something like 30% fewer Realtors, you might actually have to venture into a real estate office to find a good one.
