Only if all the other houses are selling really fast, while yours is not, would you get concerned. When I sold my place probably half the views were me wondering if I should re-word the description or put in new pictures.

But a really good picture of the front of the house is quite valuable to getting a lot of views.
If you log into Zillow you can select ‘owner view’ which will let you see how many people have viewed the listing within the last two days. There are also rankings, my house I have listed now was at #2 or 3 for the first week, and then started falling after that. New listings and price reductions are always at the top.

My house had around 500 views and 60 saves in first 24 hours. Open house was 72 hours after listing. We had about 65 visitors for open and did 6 Private showings 24 hours after listing. Was 3% over ask on private’s and still had open house and sold to all cash offer for 53k over ask.

If you see tons of activity like me it’s defiantly a good sign. My home was in a very deserible town in a nyc suburb.

I don't have any faith in these sites for being accurate. For example. my house sits on a 60 X 100 lot. Almost every lot in our subdivision is 60 x 100. The only difference being the inside corner lots being much larger.

The two homes to the right of us are in a commercial zone. 12 feet of our lot is in a commercial zone as well. So that is 1,200 square feet of our lot is in a commercial zone. The house behind me and the one across the street have the same configuration. Our lots are kind of a buffer zone of sorts. Not that anyone is planning on knocking the houses down.

Anyway when ever I look at my house on one of these sites is shows that I have a 4,800 square foot lot. It does not show anything about the 1,200 square feet in the buffer zone area. I get two property tax bills. One for the larger lot and the improvements to the land. The other is for the buffer zone area, which so happens has part of my home sitting on it.

I even asked to have the mistake fixed or at least to include the other "lot". Nothing.

Also, not sure if these places ever take new pictures of the outside. The pictures they show are for when we bought the home back in 2010. We are not planning on selling any time soon. Just wondering about all this.

Realtor.com is better than Redfin and Zillow. They both receive the info from Realtor.com. Best thing to do to sell you house is open houses and a good realtor. Cheeks in the seats, baby. Or in your case, thru the door.
