In the midst of today’s red-hot housing market, Americans are sitting in their home offices, “working” remotely and browsing Redfin for bigger, fancier home offices … right?

Wrong. The most popular time of the week to search for homes on Redfin.com is Tuesday at 8 p.m., according to Redfin search data from January and February 2022. That’s after regular work hours, post-dinner, pre-bedtime, smack dab in the middle of the workweek. Redfin.com users are spicing up otherwise run-of-the-mill Tuesday evenings by daydreaming about a new home–or seriously searching for a new home. 

Before the pandemic, Thursday at 8 p.m. was the most popular time of week to look at Redfin.com home listings–also a weeknight after regular work hours.
