These charts provide data on how many homes go under contract within 5 days and 14 days after they were listed for sale. This is a very sensitive measure of buyer pressure on the market, indicating whether there’s likely to be competition for the better properties and how current conditions compare to prior markets in this respect. In slower markets, with more listings available and fewer buyers, we may see 5% to 30% of homes going under contract this quickly. In an extreme seller’s market, with lots of buyers and few listings, these numbers might jump to 40% or 80%.
