Yo Joe! What kind of an impact does Mardi Gras have on the New Orleans real estate industry?

During the lead up and actual prime time of Mardi Gras, the market slows pretty substantially. People are busy setting up for parades, making preparation for house guests, knocking items off their professional to-do lists, and just generally avoiding the responsibility that comes with buying or selling a home.
