Praful I try not to show more than six or seven because the attention span confuses buyers... and that is strictly for Relocation Buyers to Los Angeles... local buyers  just one or two at most and that is due to inventory issues...Endre

This was definitely the exception but the buyer had 2 days max and had to find something, was from out of town and didn't know the area at all...and wanted to look at a variety of styles (townhouse and detached), so 30 houses in 2 days, BUT in neighborhoods that were pretty close to each other.  I brought a cooler full of drinks, water, snacks, lunch and we just rolled.  It was actually a lot of fun, the client was hilarious and it worked out okay because we had a good system.  Would not want to keep that pace with everyone, that is for sure!

This weekend they want her to show them 10, hopefully they can narrow that down before heading out.

I limit it to 7 but, have done twice that many condos in Uptown Charlotte before. Walkability & proximity to one another made it relatively easy but, we had to take great notes to avoid having them all run together!

15 and never again.

I limit buyers to 6 per day if separate properties.

8 per day if more than one condo per building.

More than that is harmful to them and hard on me.

Oh God. Back in the boom days when I was a young pup and there was inventory, it wasn't that uncommon to show 20 + homes in an afternoon, maybe half of those drive by and rule out.. But that's the dumb way to do it.
I learned very quickly how to zero in. Once you research properly, there should be no need to show more than maybe half a dozen homes max, come up with a top 3, make an offer on one they like the best. Rare exception.
