Are you looking to relocate to Pheonix? Great time of year to be thinking of 80 and sunshine!
Length of time on market is mainly a function of being priced right, condition of the home, and how well it shows. Price will drive a sale, but the function of a good realtor is to get the home sold, but also to make sure we don't leave the seller's money on the table! Knowledge of market and a good marketing plan are key to a realtor's effectiveness also!
Recently, I just sold a home in New Hope in about 88 days at almost 98% of asking price. The market for well priced and presented homes is good!
