The bad news? This is the slowest part of the year for the housing market.
The good news? The three slowest weeks of the year are now behind us.
In order of showing activity (most to least), they are:
3. The week straddling New Year’s
2. The week straddling Thanksgiving
1. The week straddling Christmas (slowest of the year . . . by a lot)
At least in my office, Edina Realty City Lakes, the patterns the last few years are quite consistent, and seem to trump weather, the economy, and tax incentives (or not).
