After the holidays are over, buyers tend to start getting more aggressive with their home search. Search activity usually peaks around March or April in most states, according to a new study of home searches from 2007 to 2012 conducted by Trulia. Usually in September, searches slow down. By December buyer searches ebb to their lowest point of the year.
