The initial response to my new Chicago 2-flat listing at 3623 N Ashland has been fantastic!
How do I measure the Initial Response?
Showing Appointments in the First Weekend
All real estate agents know that the first 3 weeks are critical to selling a property. Most of the showings occur during this time. Why is this? Anyone who’s been looking for a new home is watching new properties come on the market. That pool of buyers will inevitably find the new listing and, if interested, schedule a showing right away. After 3 weeks, showings are with NEW buyers. Often these new buyers are just educating themselves to the market, and aren’t necessarily READY TO BUY.
We had 6 showing appointments today at 3623 N Ashland!
Real Estate Agent Responses
Listing agents can track which buyers’ agents email listing information to their clients — IF the agents email directly from the MLS service. When the agent emails a link to a web address (url),then their correspondence obviously won’t be included in the Reverse Prospecting.
In the first 24 hours, 464 real estate agents have emailed information to their clients. Of these, 7 have responded to their agents as “INTERESTED.”
Viewings on Real Estate Feeds
Agents can see the “hits”, “views” and “click-throughs” on Feeds such as Trulia, Homefinder, VHT, and others. “Hits” are when the information comes up in a search, while “views” or click-throughs” are instances where the viewer clicks on your property to get more information, see photos, etc.
In the first 24 hours, Trulia alone reported that 3623 Ashland had 162 hits and 16 property views.
It’s just the first day —
I don’t think however, that this property will last long – it’s a solid investment for some lucky home buyer!
