The ShowingTime Showing Index measures demand another way: by comparing the number of booked appointments for virtual or in-person showings to the number of properties available. It’s a forward-looking index, explained Michael Lane, president of ShowingTime. “There aren’t that many that are giving you a feel for what’s happening for upcoming sales.” The index uses January 2014 showings as a baseline set at a score of 100, so a score of 150 would indicate a 50 percent increase over 2014’s rate of showings.
