For Week Ending October 7, 2017

Many potential buyers are simply not on the market during this time of year, as school-aged children settle into routines and the gainfully employed focus more on end-of-year goals and holiday planning over taking on a big move. But not all buyers are equal. Consider instead the first-time buyers with no children, relocated employees, investment buyers, bargain hunters and those with generally fewer ties to established routines.
