Michael! Real cold in Charlotte is 48 degrees! I couldn't believe it when we moved here that people thought real cold was in the high 40's. Seriously, we do have days that hover around 40 degrees but I don't see business slow down because of it.

The real estate business slows in our area when there is snow and ice that restricts driving, parking and walking.

Michael - Our business does have its seasons, but I don't think it has as much to do with the weather as other reasons. It has been colder this year than usual, but business is up.

Good morning Michael. Not necessarily the cold, unless it is bitter cold, but when there is a lot of snow, it has a major effect.

Usually it does.  Especially when it's really cool, like windchill advisory cold.  Sellers don't like to leave their houses either.

"real cold" is relative.  Our real cold out here is 50.  That's shorts and T-Shirt weather for Indiana!  I don't think anything will stop serious shopppers and our "cold" weather just means you bundle up first.

Not when the weather turns really cold, but if its mixed with sleet or snow it does slow down by 75%. However, you always have a few people since they didnt go to work, decide inclement winter weather is the optimum time to look for homes.

If we had an average winter, business would slow in wnter however this is not average. With it being warm i had teh busiest December ever and January has stayed just as busy so far. Last year with nearly 10 feet of snow in 2 months, we sat on our hands until spring when it exploded.
