This year has been one of the coldest winters I can remember for a long time. The Ohio River and the Little Kanawha was iced over and barges were getting stuck in the ice. The kids missed alot of school due to bad weather. Although it has slowed the housing market down, it hasn't totally stopped. People are still listing their homes and buyers are still looking. Winter is not a bad time to put your house on the market. Most people wait until spring to put their homes for sale but there are still buyers in the winter. You have less competition if you list your home for sale in the winter months.
