The most recent experience I had was I showed my current buyers two homes on the first day and they put in an offer that very next day on the 1st house I showed them. Of course this doesn't always happen. My other current buyer has been looking for 3 months.
It has a lot to do with the reasons they are buying.
The answer to that question varies. I don't think you can say there's an average. I have some buyers who will go right out and find a home immediately and others who will take months. I have a few buyers out there who have been "looking" for more than 3 months. I think it depends on how motivated they are and the availability of homes that meet their search criteria.
