Does weather affect home sales?
Yes, buyers don’t mind the distraction when the market is uncertain!
But now that the holidays are over, the Chargers are done, more houses are coming to market, and mortgage rates are a half-point lower than they were three months ago, we are (over)due for a surge of activity.
There are two big NFL games on Sunday afternoon, which leaves Saturday wide open – and it has the best weather of the week.
No big games the following weekend, so if the weather holds out, buyers should be fully engaged – and if they aren’t, then that says something too.
It’s hard enough just trying to sell – if you have to schedule around the weather and other conflicts (graduations, for example), it narrows down the chances even more. But if we can anticipate opportunities, let’s take advantage.
