Shoppers get frustrated and might even move on when they visit your website and pick a time for a tour, only to find out later that a showing wasn't available at that time. The result? A missed opportunity.

But if they saw truly available appointment times, they could successfully book a tour on their first try.

Real-time availability removes scheduling obstacles for buyers. In the current low-inventory market, calendars fill up quickly. Make it easy for home buyers to schedule a time that really works!

Why It Matters

What Is Real-Time Availability?

Now you can display directly on your website or application the truly available times your listings can be toured!


Real-time availability is a way to show home shoppers the actual times your listings are available for tours, both on your site and on other public-facing sites.

Displaying the real-time calendar enables buyers to successfully book tours on their first try, giving them and their agents a positive experience with your listing.

Helping Buyer’s Agents Quickly - and Successfully - Book Tours on Your Listings

What if buyer’s agents only requested truly available appointment times on your listings, times that also worked for their buyers?

Real-time availability help you tap into the steady stream of buyer's agents browsing your listings at any given time, removing scheduling obstacles so they can successfully book tours with their buyers. 

Tours successfully booked on the first try will greatly increase the likelihood that a buyer actually views the home. In the current low inventory market, calendars quickly fill up; any request met with a “sorry, please try another time” will result in fewer opportunities for sellers to get multiple offers.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does ShowingTime choose which websites can display real-time availability?
Brokerages, teams and agents that request access to our APIs must be current ShowingTime users and agree to ShowingTime's Terms of Use. Once deployed, the API will display real-time availability for tours.

If consumers are booking tours on our listings on these websites, who will get the lead?
ShowingTime does not determine how leads are distributed. Lead assignment rules are determined by each website. ShowingTime's goal is to help make your listing more desirable by providing the real-time availability of the home, which increases the probability of a buyer scheduling a tour.

Consumers simply tap or click on your listing to schedule a tour. With the API, your calendar only shows the times the home can be toured, so your listing agents won't waste time on the back-and-forth that results when requested times aren't available.

Appointments successfully booked on the first try makes it more likely that the buyer and their agent will actually tour the home.
