After Chicago’s loss yesterday the LeapRE Chicago staff decided to look for a silver lining to the end of the season.
Although for a Bears’ fan it may be little solace, it looks like our real estate agents may experience a noticeable uptick in showings next Sunday with buyers ready to venture out in the cold to a listing instead of to a pub for the game.
Using the January 9th bi-week as a base, the Sunday showing traffic on January 16th, the division game, was down 24%. The Sunday showing traffic on January 23rd was down a full 40%.
Meanwhile the showings on Saturday’s went stayed flat from the 8th to the 15th and even went up about 13% on the 22nd.
Next week while the Bears are mulling over what they could have done differently, hopefully our agents will be out showing homes and making deals happen.
