I don't know "typical" in your area. Showings and offers matter more. How many showings and offers have you had?

Then if that same person comes back and searches another time that is another view--whether or not they looked at the details. How else could there be so many views in such a short time.
I would have to think views means they actually clicked on it (although maybe they didn't get through all the pictures). Lots of people look at RE listings that aren't actively looking to buy.

I wouldn't look to much into how many Zillow views you have. Many people look at Zillow that are not even in the market to buy.

Exactly right.
Particularly if the listing has a common name in the street, community, or city that is a keyword in many unrelated searches by consumers.
The OP would do well to review the details of the listing and the remarks by the listing agent in the MLS listing.

When my buyers "find" the house on Zillow, usually it is a home that came up already in the MLS search I have set up for them.
Or, they are seeking with parameters they did not provide to me, i.e., different location, higher price, etc.

Zillow is up in the "75 million unique visitors each month" range ... but we're only selling maybe 7MM resale homes this year in the US. Do the math.

Are those actively looking using Zillow at some point? In very high %'s - yes. However, I do know people that are actively looking that either haven't heard of Zillow (I know!?!?!?!?) or don't use it because it's so error-prone.

I will check to see what comes - i look at them and delete them. I know it has number of views, and number of people who go thru all of the photos. I think he sends me one from each of those sites - but i will keep watch and let you know. I believe they come weekly. It also has something like a chart with it.

We've had about 33 showings since May 19. One offer that was much too low. Dropped the price once, and will probably drop it again after the new year.

All I know is that I utilized Zillow (as well as the MLS website I had access to) heavily when I was looking to buy my first place. I definitely used Zillow and similar sites to scratch certain places off of my list and to add to my list of places to check out.
