It depends on the price range of the home: $0-299,999 is 164 days, $300-499,999 is 174 days, $500-999,999 is 271 days, $1,000,000 to $1,999,999 is 248 days. These figures could be modest, since we now re-instituted a policy where the realtors can cancel a listing and then relist it immediately and it will erase the cumulative market time. It is not uncommon to see homes listed for 2 years, but they may have pulled off market for the holidays and then relisted, etc. I always check the "Property History" of any specific home to see how long it truly has been on the market. In my 23 years of experience, I have found that the only homes that are selling in this challenging market are the ones that are priced very competitively and/or the ones that are professionally "staged". I have an interior designer that will go into my listings and offer suggestions to the seller as to how to make their home show the very best, often re-arranging furniture, repainting in soft neutral colors, replacing light fixtures, sometimes replacing flooring, changing or eliminating window treatments, etc. Basically, your home needs to show like a "model home" or it needs to be priced right to sell.
