No not really except if it's over 6" or so. The 1st storm is always the worst as people have to get used to driving in it.

Yes. The first snow in town usually delays school which can impact agents getting to work and home showings. But it also triggers winter tourism which creates opportunities to meet potential buyers.

The local municipalities here in the Greater Danbury, Connecticut area are well prepared for the snow. They take to the roads through the night, well equipped with plows, sand or salt & the roads are usually passable by early morning... for most storms. Sometimes it will snow all day & then everything shuts down & I will get showing cancellations.
