“It was dead out there today…the only places that had a lot of traffic were those that offered free food.”
UPDATE: And from a reader:
Matches my experience last Sunday. First time I’ve been around open houses for six months and all bar one condo were simply dead. On prior open house tours this year I’ve almost always remarked at my surprise as to how much foot traffic there’s been.
Keep in mind that it was fleet week weekend, and the markets on Friday didn’t exactly leave people feeling flush with cash (cue “on topic” foreshadowing). But as any decent agent will tell you, it’s the people out touring the open houses on the “rainy days” that are more likely to act.
