Has July and August been quiet for buyers and sellers in the Barrington real estate market? Yes, there’s always a slow down during summer and 2014 has been no different. That’s not saying we came to a screeching halt, far from it. But buyer activity has been slower, sellers have not had as many showings as in spring, and even my website traffic has been less than usual during these two summer months.
Barrington Schools Are Back in Session August 20th 2014
Fear not. August 20th 2014 sees the return of kids to school. With most summer vacations wrapping up, parents are now scrambling to get supplies, clothes, back packs, shoes and everything else the children need for the new school year. New schools for some, mean orientation meetings. It’s a busy time of year for parents with kids and real estate is not on their minds much. However we always see a resurgence of activity once schools are back. Who knew real estate was so driven by a school calendar?
Predicting More Activity in the Barrington Real Estate Market During Fall
Spring is always a busy real estate market in Barrington and fall is very similar. Our prediction is that the market will do what it does every year, get more active during fall. We are already seeing an increase in activity on our site, a little early but not everyone is involved in the school calendar. Buyers like to move before the Holidays, they’ve got 3 months to achieve it, so research commences now.
If you are a buyer we know you’ll be ready to look at homes again soon, we’re ready too. If you’re a seller, we hope you’ll see an increase in showing activity soon as well. There’s a good couple of months before we start to get cold weather approaching, time enough to buy a house or sell a house. Let us know how we can help, just fill in our quick form below. We look forward to helping you.
