It varies. Showing time is just one thing, researching, selecting and setting appointments for these showings make this a very time consuming activity.

If I look at time spent annually the actual showing time is a small portion. In any week it can be substantial if I have several buyers in town.

Too hard to answer . Some clients walk in and say "oh no" forget it.

Depends. There was a time I had one client all morn, another all afternoon, and barely stopped for dinner before an evening deal was sealed. That's not the same answer at all today. No longer my goal to work myself to death.

The better you become at identifying your buyers wants and needs, the less time you need to spend actually "showing" property.

It depends on the client and the type of financing. FHA buyers looking for a condo in my market can take endless hours.

Only if you work primarily with buyers!  For me, showing takes very little time because the buyers I work with are myself and investors.  They are a whole different breed.

Listings are the name of the game..... if you have listings, you will always have business..... you can handle more listings than you can buyers.... buyers are time consuming....
