Social Comparison Among Housing Markets

Measuring foot traffic in real estate is increasingly a matter of web stats usage, or page hits. That's because just about everyone previews housing on the web before house shopping commences. But sometimes the comparison between housing markets is best described the old-fashioned way: literal foot traffic.

So, our Texas foot traffic over 2 months has totaled close to two dozen groups.

And our friends in San Francisco surpassed that number on their first day of listing (a Saturday). And saw more than double that on their second day (Mother's Day Sunday).

In Texas, we didn't even consider having an open house on Mother's Day.
