I really don’t think that the cold weather slows down sales much. Neither does the holidays. I ran an ad last year during Thanksgiving week…got 43 phone calls. Sold one home the day after Christmas.
The biggest thing is the added cost of heat. In the summer you have to mow (I pay my son or some park kids to mow the yards). In the winter there is no mowing but you have to remove snow and keep the pipes from freezing. The added cost of heat adds about $50 a month to my carrying cost for a home. Overall, costs me almost as much to mow the yard in the summer.
