Buyers market

I heard an apt descrition of the market today - ' Its a buyer's market without any buyers' .  How appropriate,

I suppose the weather has some effect but past open houses have been poorly attended and I'm at a loss to explain it. In speaking to other Realtors I hear the same story over and over. Where are the buyers?

August is as usual the doldrums in the industry so here's hoping the wind will soon change.
