Here’s how our year of activity generally works in the real estate market.

What are the hottest real estate months in the south-central Pennsylvania market? 

According to all the statistics, in a usual fiscal year, April, May, and June are when the highest percentage of properties go under contract. We commonly see a midsummer lull around July because kids are out of school and people are in “vacation mode.” Then we see activity ramp up between September and November; it’s our second-hottest market time of the year. Between the winter holidays and March, we have the winter lull when activity slows quite a bit.
