You've likely heard that the real estate market slows down in the fall and winter. There is some truth to this. During fall and winter, there tends to be less activity in the real estate marketplace as a whole. Fewer homes are listed, fewer homes are bought, fewer homes are sold. Activity starts to pick up again in spring and peaks in the summer. Whether you're considering buying or selling, you're likely asking yourself whether now is the time to do it. For sellers in particular, the prospect of fewer buyers in fall and winter can make selling a home during the colder months seem like a bad idea. But this is not necessarily the case.
