    WAGs,Timing of final property tax bills being released. No more guessing how "big" they were going to be. Tightening credit interest rates down again. End of fiscal year for state and the closing and deadlines for incentive programs.Storms and related damage events - including localized flooding following long drought period.

    Same thing, same time, year after year.
    School started.
    No time to look at houses for awhile.

    Ditto. It slows down this time every year for me. Just about the time people start shopping for back-to-school.

    All the brokers and lawyers are on vacation. same as every year.
    All your inspection reports from the past two or three weeks are sitting on some lawyers desk collecting dust.
    Be happy. the madness will return shortly.
    Go out and pretend you have a normal life for a few days

    Pretty normal for it to slow when school starts. Normal slow times are back to school, Thanksgiving, Christmas holidays, Jan to Feb and for some reason the month of July for me.

    Business is still good in my area. I'm happy with my 5 to 8 inspections a week.

    Some economists have stated that because the beginning of the year was so warm, many colder climate areas had increased home purchases. These are people that would have bought later in the year anyways. No new, just the same spread out over an additional couple of months.

    I know I saw an uptick in claims/suits much earlier in the year. I normally see the claims uptick at the end of August through the beginning of October. This is because we generally see claims occur 4-6 months after the move in of the clients. I saw them in July and August this year (and they have died down in the last couple of weeks (knock on wood))

    Enjoy the respite, You should have a good fall (at least all signs are pointing that way IMHO).
