It all depends on our activity Winston Heverly .
If we slow down in lead generation during September and October, the results show up in holiday season - and we blame it on Holidays!
It's Fall not the holiday season yet. I worked with new buyers yesterday and did a CMA for another seller.

If I let it.
Sales are always up at the end of the year. At the beginning of the year they actually skyrocket, in the south.
Not really I have sold a home on Thanksgiving day 3 years ago. Only time sales slow down is the week of Christmas.
no, not at all.... we're focused on builders/deveopers and land owners at this moment....they work every day of the year....
Living in the desert, our winter is not the same as those in other parts of the US. We get a lot of vistors over the holidays (some call them Snowbirds) who buy second, or investment properties. AARP named Tucson this year a top 10 place to live, and they love to visit and buy RE. In the 9 years I have been a Realtor here in Tucson, AZ I only really notice a real slow down the 2 weeks around Dec 25th but even then, I am usually still showing houses.
I have always found the business to be random. Sometimes winter or Fall is my best season.
I don't consider it the holiday season yet. We are seeing a big rush to get things done before Thanksgiving. Then, yes, it's typical season slow down. But, this year, appts seem to be dropping off a tad sooner (but thankfully actual closed sales are still strong).
Dramaticly effect, suggests 'drama' which would mean the change was unexpected.
Seasonal change actually means, for a season. Someone moved the cheese for a few months and it CAN be found.
Typically new sales will slow between Thanksgiving and Christmas however I am still busy closing the sales made in October, helping sellers who who have listed and want theor house to go pubkic in January and the many buyers who will look through out the Holidays as they are ready to buy a home and still looking to fond their dream home
My investment business is year round so it is a little different than most, so the answer is no. It actually picks up as people want to invest before the end of the year.
