How Many Houses do Most Buyers Look At?

According to the National Association of Realtors Home Buyer and Seller Generational Trends report, the median number of houses that buyers looked at before purchasing was 9 houses.


However, this number varied significantly by age group, with younger buyers typically looking at more homes before making a purchase. For example, buyers under the age of 29 looked at a median of 13 homes, while buyers aged 65 and older looked at a median of 6 homes.

It's important to note that these numbers are only a rough estimate and can vary widely depending on factors such as the time of year, the location of the properties, the type of property, and the buyer's specific needs and preferences.

Some home buyers may find their selling point in a dream home after only looking at a few properties, while others may need to see dozens of homes before finding the right one.

The number of homes that a buyer looks at will depend on their unique situation and the availability of properties that meet their needs.
