Transcript of Cari’s answer

I would keep that to single digits…nine at the absolute most. But the best is right around four or five on any given day. Because the human brain can only remember seven, plus or minus two. So nine houses is really the maximum that you could keep straight, and even then, you’re amazing as a human being if you can keep that many straight in your head.

And even with technology today of taking pictures, and making notes, and shooting videos, it’s still really tough for our brains to catch up with that. And you can’t see too many houses cuz then they just all blur together.

That can be very difficult when you have an out-of-town buyer coming in for just a day or two, and they feel like they need to see 20 houses or 30 houses so that they’re not, you know, missing something.

It is still best to see just a couple handfuls of houses. Because otherwise, you’re just gonna be so frustrated and so upset and not remember anything, and it will be a wasted trip essentially. So just see the top nine.
