Appointments continue to rise with over 4500 appointments made throughout the week. Wednesday and Thursday were busier than they have been so far in 2023, and Friday saw nearly 900 appointments. Compared to April of 2022, there has been a 10.8% increase in overall appointments.
Over the last 3 weeks, the appointment/sold index dropped steadily to 13.7, and solds are continuing to outpace new listings. The drop in this index is showing that buyers are aware of the shortage of inventory, and are making quicker buying decisions as a result.
