It's mid-October, and there's a few open houses in the neighborhood this weekend.
But more houses have for sale signs out in front.
If your house doesn't sell now, you're going to have it a few more months.
The holidays are coming, then the winter. House sales don't crank up again until March or April.
One of the houses has a heart-shaped sign out front - "You'll love our new price."
The sellers probably didn't love putting it at that price.
And won't love keeping in on the market through the winter.
Such is life in the Obama economy of 2011.
