Stays the same - we're primarily a 2nd home market
Panama City, FL
Harry F. D'Elia - the vacation does show less traffic on highways.
This is also observed during school vacation week.
Stays the same.
About the same.
Stays about the same.
Busy time of year for our student rentals, other parts of the business are unchanged.
Here, it tends to pick up after Labor Day.
I live in a military town where the summer is the busiest time of the year. We do see some dropoff after school starts.
Hi Harry - We have a traditional lull in August - it's usually our slowest month - as people finish vacations and get ready for school, and then things pick up again about mid-September until Thanksgiving.
Less listings of families.
this month has been quiet compared to previous months of the summer....it's the last hoorah.... it will pick up again once school starts and I'll do a mass mailing that will go in the mail the last day of August....landing after school starts....
Business traffic slows down. Less buyers looking, fewer homes on the market.
Actual traffic (vehicles) increases!
There's definitely an increase in school buses.
Always. Our schools ( LASD) are about to start next week. It will definitely add more traffic in certain hours.
Around the schools it does, especially the first few weeks until the helicopter parents realize their kids are ok.
Maybe a slight short slowdown ... my market remains pretty hot.
The busy season is in April and May.
I live about 2 miles from the schools so traffic is challenging and busy during school opening and closing hours.
Traffic changes big time! We have 4 schools (middle, and elementary) within a 1.5 mile radius and only 1 main road to access them.
The buses are like clowns getting out of a car!
Slight increase morning and afternoon...then there are those crazy soccer mom's with fire in their eyes on a mission of destruction in their oversized SUVs. Ugh!
Silicon Valley has full employment w/o school buses. Now I see why few want to commute. Constipated.
A major layoff helps. Nothing is in the horizon yet.
It definitely increases. I try to stay away from the roads during school bus time!
Not really, we focus on commercial and investors
Does traffic increase? Is the Pope Catholic? I live within 1 mile or less of three schools!
What kind of traffic? road traffic? web traffic? customers visiting homes?
Road traffic, yes. Website traffic - not much of a diff.
It increases during rush hour.
Yes, I have noticed on my morning walks that there are more cars on the road in the early morning hours since I walk near one of the local high schools.
Are you talking about the market or the roads?
Its noticeable. Its like a herd of animals. They leave a trail wherever they go
After kids are back and school and the last hurrah of Labor Day week-end activity always picks up!
Street traffic or real estate traffic?
It increases throughout the city.
Where I now live, it stays the same. In the past, traffic always increased! New experience!
The type of buyers change. When the kids get out of school, we have a rush for those looking to be in a home before they go back. In a typical year summer slows and fall can be as busy as the spring market
It almost doubles in size.
