December 2015 continued much the same path as was started in January. Overall MLS® Sales volume was down in comparison with previous years. December is often a difficult month to compare as historically December in real estate is always the quietest month out of the year. Not a lot of moving going on around Christmas nor is there an abundance of people wanting to buy and plan a move. December is always a month for other activities, most significantly celebrating Christmas.
Comparing December Sales volume to previous Decembers, 2015 was the lowest we've seen since the last major economic downturn of fall 2008.
