In general, August tends to a be a market cool down in housing compared to other peak months. The reason is simple. There are enough buyers and sellers who are parents of school-age children who prefer to not uproot children during this time of the year. No fear, there are thousands of transactions happening in the cooler months and numerous deals to be made.
