What are we, squirrels?   The only time I'm slow'sh is July when people are in vacation mode; too hot, too buggy, too humid, too lazy to look at property.  In the winter - let's rock!!!

Why is it a slow season.  Plenty of people will be selling and buying from now until mid-February.

I don't anticipate a slow season.  I've got a busy December lined up, with business in the pipeline for January as well.  Many agents I know are experiencing the same.

No such thing as a slow season here in San Diego, the 4th quarter is my second busiest working in my business and the first quarter is the absolute busiest working on my my business. Then 2nd & 3rd quarters are naturally busy for doing both. You control your economy, not some mystical "season".

Tony - Statistics will show that home sales do slow down here in Arizona during the winter months. However, I had a pretty good winter last year, and am hoping for a repeat this year.

I usually prospect well enough that this time of year still provides a few closings.  Nice to be a little slower with the Holiday events.

Tony,
For whatever reason I have always found December through February to be a very good time of year. Often luxury homes sell during this period.

No! I'm {this close} to having my start-up costs covered so I can become official. Guess if there is a slow season here in the Metro Denver area I'll be diving into it and learning how to stir up business despite the speed of the "season".

Hmmm, I suppose that can only be good for me in the long run, so I change my mind: Bring it on! :0)

It's a busy time of year.  Things such as the 2013 Ice Storm cause short term slowdowns because hydro needs to be restored over several days and fallen trees need to be removed.  Otherwise, it depends on how the weather is.

When I first got into real estate, there were two old agents in the office who told me that nobody buys and sells in the winter, and they had never closed a deal in the winter. Thankfully I didn't listen to them. I'm always busy in the winter. Its mindset, if you say you won't get any business in the winter, YOU WON"T!
