In September, Baltimore and its five neighboring counties saw 2,055 residences sold, down from 2,405 in August, according to sales figures from Rockville-based RealEstate Business Intelligence LLC. "All property segments posted lower than average sales for the month, which could be an early sign that demand has weakened," the firm said in a statement.

"I had a difficult time, pulling people back in, away from their TV," Pakulla said. "They were all glued to their TVs, and that had a major impact on our business at that point because not only were my agents glued, but so were people who were looking to buy houses."
