Slow down? I guess it is normal. But this year a slow down from 120% of normal is still a good market. Personally I endorse other agents taking a slow down for winter. Summer or Winter, Spring or Fall, we still have buyers and sellers and with a large percentage of agents planning for a self fulfilling slow down just leaves all the more for those of us that are still hitting the ball.Friday I wrote an offer for closing first part of January. Today I am presenting a full price offer for closing 12/30 and I am writing an offer for closing 12/20. So I guess slow down is in the eye of the beholder. If you want the time, it is there, take it. But, if you want to make it hot, work it. We only have 60 seconds in a minute, 60 minutes in an hour and 24 hours in a day. No more no less... Never speeds up or slows down. Use it wisely. The market doesn't care about us and it could turn tomorrow. So use the market, and your time today then tomorrow will take care of itself.

Good morning Debbie. So far no slow down, doing business in eight states keeps new mortgage clients coming my way. Blogging is the main reason.

I am had buyers tell me they think they will wait until after Christmas and sellers say they don't want to be bothered through the holidays. So it is slowing up for me.

I hope so!  I'm tired.  

Business has been great, but a slow down would be welcome.  

I wish I could pound my chest and flash my smile and pretend that I closed eleventy billion last week, but I didn't.  

I fell just short of that.  LOL!

No! Just closed 2 escrows on Friday, one more (my first TRID) closing around Thanksgiving and I have 4 new buyers starting over the span of this month and a new listing 12/01 coming out. My 4th quarter is always #2 busiest since 1999.

Good morning Debbie,

It was slow during the weekend, it gave me time to do personal things.

Catching up with things to do is not bad.
