It does slow down. The 'experts' have attributed this to the presence of 'bear blood' in those who live in the land of the frozen chosen. When winter hits they go into hibernation not be be seen again until spring training.

Fortunately, there are plenty from south of the border and across the pond to fill the void. There is another population from the land of fruit and nuts that also try to sneak into Florida. The pull up the bridges order has been issued.

Historically we have a slower market this time of year.  Last year and this year that doesn't seem to be going to hold true.  I already have several scheduled appointments between now and new year's day.  It's been kind of crazy.

Here in NH it was 63 in the first day of winter, all the snow has melted and i feel like I should be wearing shorts and sitting on the pool deck with an umbrella drink instead of getting ready for Christmas. In business, winter does slow here in NH. The weather does affect business. But people have to sell and people want to buy. It has been the busiest December in many years for me.

Happy First day of winter! My daughter always reminds us of the change of seasons. As for real estate, Dec. and Jan. are slow for us, but it is by choice due to John's heavy hunting season. Moose, Elk, and Deer in our freezer, and still two closings in December and four in November.

Here in Illinois/Chicagoland, much depends on the temperatures, the condition of the roads, snow/sleet, and more during the weather Fred Griffin.  People hunker down when it gets inclement.  Plus people just don't want to face the weather conditions if moving.  It results in a slower housing market, no doubt many years ...
