Andrew,

We still hold the firm belief that there is always someone buying and someone selling, dates have nothing to do with it!  You just have to be where the fish are biting.  A

I do not have small kids. I am not off. I am working. 

School out in my area is not impacting real estate sales.

People are always buying and selling. And they always work around the kids in my experience. Sometimes I did not want too!

Most families with school children tend to leave town, either to go south to the sun or skiing. Relo's might find it a convenient time to look for a home.

School Vacation Week? My kids have President's Day off, but that's it. I have small kids, one in first grade with just Monday off (school tomorrow and the rest of the week) and another in Preschool who doesn't go to school on Monday anyway, so today was work as usual actually. Our kids know mom and dad work from home and are real estate brokers. -Kasey

School is still in session here as far as I know.  Maybe only 1 day off for President's Day.  No impact here.  There is a slowness when school gets out for the summer, but after two weeks it's back to normal.

Our spring break is at the end of MArch and it never ceases to amaze me at how many of the local population leave town. Realtors leave too so there is more business for us that stay behind.

Your question puzzles me.

My answer is that the only vacation period that affects our real estate market is end of the year…Thanksgiving through New Year’s Day. That is a slow period in which many home sellers and buyers are distracted by the season.

My vacation? I mostly vacation where cell phone and wireless internet access are available and I work as needed.

   Tallahassee is in Florida, but we are not a tourist destination.  The locals here leave town on 3 day weekends, Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving, 4th of July.  It gets real peaceful.

   Our small kids became big kids, aka adults.   Grown and on their own.

Locals might leave town when school is out; relocating families come to town to look when school is out. My youngest kid is a 19 year-old granddaughter in college in Denver... no, I am not off. And schools are open here.
