When compared to the week of Christmas, last week saw a huge 72.81% increase in the number of appointments. With the holiday office closures, these numbers aren’t unexpected. In fact, last year saw a 100.9% increase in appointments booked in the first week of January. What is exceptional though, is that this week we saw a 36% increase in total appointments from Jan 1-9 year over year. This shows a strong start the year and a promising month ahead.
Our sold/appointment index dropped considerably to 18.6 appointments, definitely fewer appointments needed over the past week before Buyers put pen to paper.
