I probably should just keep my mouth shut, but sometimes I just can't. Brian, how do you know this person lacks experience? New to Trulia does not necessarily mean new to RE. Whether new or not, your statement about it getting busier for them is interesting considering they have 17 listings to your 1.
November and December are traditionally the slowest months in my market. Holidays, dark days, lousy weather all contribute to fewer showings and closings. As the calendar turns, we traditionally see things start to pick up culminating in the late spring when properties look their best and the sunshine puts everyone in a better mood. Best of luck.
Under normal circumstances this is the case, but not this year. I am getting multiple offers on my listings in Park Hill within days, not weeks. I have buyers who are highly motivated and it is all I can do to find strategies to get ahead of the other motivated buyers who are often out there on day one and ready to move forward. I can't imagine what the spring buying season will be like.

When things were really rocking in California, there would be a lull from November to December, but the market would suddenly light on fire in January.
Not to worry. The momentum usually starts in April in Colorado. But, with all the dry weather, I think more homes will move.
