If you are looking to sell your house, one of the first questions that you may have is how many days will your home be on the market.
Ryan Haley, owner and broker at Atlantic Shores Sotheby’s International Realty, gives us an overview of what the market looks like for home sellers.
Currently, the national average days on market for houses for sale is pegged at 18 DAYS. This is considered to be the lowest ever. So, for the time you list your property up to the time that it goes Under Contract, it will take about 18 days.
How does this benefit you as a seller?
Knowing that it takes lesser days on market for homes to sell should reduce the time you need to prepare the property for showings. You can expect to garner a lot of showings on the very first week of listing the house. In this market scenario, there would be fewer instances of having to prepare for showings, so you can have time to go away for the weekend.
As a seller, you also benefit as there is less uncertainty about the home selling and when it is going to sell. With the days on market at a national average of just 18 days, it certainly takes away much of the uncertainty, leaving you with some peace of mind.
Just remember that as long as the property shows well and is priced well within the marketplace, it is going to sell.
The average days on market is one reason that now is the right time to put your property on the market. See other reasons you should sell now.
