Probably a dozen, but I haven't done residential in a decade-and-a-half so give or take.

Back in the day, FOMO buyers were terrified if they didn't see everything possible. But if your criteria is clear, you should be good to go after viewing your top three to five homes. Any more than half a dozen, and it becomes a blur. We have too much technology to not be able to rule out undesirables.

Plus, buyers should be able to drive neighborhoods without an agent before a tour and eliminate what looks good in listing photos but is actually not good up close and personal.

There are many factors involved: the buyer, timing, desired location, availability and many others. It is a question/ issue that is discussed upfront.  There has been an occasion where I have shown ten properties but that was long ago.

I believe 12 or 14 but, they were condos located in our Uptown area - very close to one another.

It's too confusing for buyers to see more than 5 or 6 though. And, now, it's rare that more than that even fit their criteria that are available!

The distance away from the property... not just homes but acreage, mom and pop business, multi unit apartment property whatever is greater in rural areas. That's why videos save time and increase the showing while keeping the jeep parked in the yard. Can upload a video render tonight and by morning there are 300 "showings". No one has to take off their shoes with these kind of on demand open house tours round the clock.

Eight. During the bust, more houses were vacant and more could be shown.

The first outing comes with a 30 minute "look" limit. After all, the house isn't being inspected, but evaluated and there are others waiting expecting us to be on time. We will be there Tuesday between 8 and 12 or 1 and 5. Image that, real estate agents being on time.

15, but it was a Downtown San Diego luxury condo tour with 2-3 units per high-rise. So we were commuting more on elevators than in the car. The buyer was from out of town too, so time together was limited.
