Foot Traffic: Illinois

  • Foot traffic can give a strong indication of future home sales.  SentriLock, LLC. provides NAR Research with monthly data on the number of showings.
  • Foot traffic in the area covered by the REALTOR® Association of Fox Valley (Geneva, IL) rose 20% in June of this year compared to June of 2011.
  • Year-over-year growth in showings has been stronger in all of the last 12 months and the spread has expanded this spring no doubt driven by record low mortgage rates.
