The History of Veterans Day

Veterans Day is a U.S. legal holiday dedicated to American veterans of all wars.

That is why Veterans Day is formerly known as Armistice Day – a U.S. legal holiday previously celebrating the official end of World War I on November 11, 1918.

The momentum of the housing market has paved the way for cooler Autumn and Holiday Markets.


No End of Year Surge: There will not be a sudden surge in closed sales for the remainder of the year. It is that time of the year. The days are growing shorter, the leaves are changing, and Halloween decorations have emerged. Autumn has arrived. Just as the seasons change, so does the housing market. The Spring and Summer Markets are officially in the rearview mirror. There’s very little of 2018 that remains.


Orange County Housing Market Summary:

  • The active listing inventory decreased by 6 homes in the past two weeks, almost identical, and now totals 7,201. The inventory finally reached a peak for 2018. Normally it peaks between July and August.
