I am finding that now that the spring weather has arrived, the buyers are out looking again. The activity level depends on the price point- every year there is a "chain of dominoes" that sets up, with the first homes selling to first time buyers. The sellers of those homes then buy a larger home, and the seller of those larger homes then buy, etc., etc.
Right now homes in the $600,000-$700,000 range are moving. I just sold a home near downtown that was priced at $719,000 before it went on open market- I knew of an agent working with a motivated transferree buyer, and they bought. This is happening now because the transferree buyers are starting to buy, looking to close and move in this summer before the new school year starts .
