Often people think Fall is the marker for the real estate listing and selling market to slow down. That is not always true. Many factors drive activity, low interest rates, corporate moves, right-sizing, school changes, job changes, family changes. In light of the variables, it is also important to expect differences in market activities based on price ranges. A scarcity in housing in the $200,000 to $350,000 range will keep the searches and negotiations active and at a high pitch. However, a high inventory of housing in the $350,000 to $600,000 range can really slow the activity to a low level. In looking at scarcity of property or scarcity of buyers, neither will necessarily respond to time of year, temperatures or holidays.
