The graduation season is upon us, and while not a holiday of any sort, for those who have a graduate it is a busy time, with loads of distractions!

Parents of eighth-graders, high-school seniors, and those graduating from college tend to be out of the real estate game for a week or two.  It won’t stop a hot buy from selling, but generally there are fewer participants on the prowl.

You can see the effect in the 2014 stats.  Here are the number of listings marked pending each month that eventually closed escrow:

March: 252

April: 287

May: 294

June: 239

July: 265

August: 231

Sept: 212

Our graduation season wrapped up yesterday, and Natalie is looking forward to a restful summer before heading to Westwood next fall!
