Summer is finally in full swing, and while everyone notices the lack of traffic, and the loads of sunshine, those marketing their homes may also notice a change. Historically, the summertime has been a season of decreased traffic for showings and Open Houses. This is absolutely normal, as this truly is the time when the majority of people are taking vacations, and are keeping busy entertaining the family.
While the decreased traffic can be disheartening, do keep in mind that those that are out shopping are real opportunties! If they are out on the weekends at this time of year, they are more likely to be a truly prospective buyer. Many of our most exciting sales have occured in the midst of the August heat!
Time to enjoy the summer!
