Inevitably, most housing markets tend to wind down at the end of each year.

There are gifts to purchase, holiday travels to plan and kids to care for during
winter break. This isn’t the case for all buyers and sellers, of course, but there are
enough who follow this traditional path to create a trend view that shows creatures
not stirring. Be prepared for at least two weeks of lessened activity before things
pick up again in January.
