Not really less or more but certainly different.

As Debbie Women of Westchester Working Together answered:  fewer showing appointments at night during the Winter months.

I tend to work later in the day/evening in the summer but get up much earlier in the winter so that by evening I can (hopefully) shut it off and spend time in front of the fireplace with a good book.  At least some of the time.

Soon as daylight savings time ends, it is so dark, buyers do not want to view homes.  Still have a few night listing appointments, but it is also slower this time of year.   I spend those free hours marketing.

Absolutely!  Nine months out of the year we're putting in 50 - 60 + hours a week.  When it slows down over the holidays, we enjoy that we've created a successful business and can slow down a bit.  

We normally get a lot of snow up here so the market really slows down.  We take advantage of it!

Yes, come to think of it, I do.

Fewer daylight hours means evening activity will not include showing real estate.

Without sunshine is just seems I am working longer hours therefore rarely benefiting from a walk in the sunshine.
