It really depends on the price range. What is the price range you are looking at?

You should find a Realtor to help you sell your home that can get it listed, have 7-10 showings in the first week that the home is on the market, and have a contract within 2-3 weeks of the home being on the market. Statistically speaking, the longer a house sits on the market, the lower the price. If you don't have this minimum number of showings and a contract quickly, you will be facing accepting an offer at less than what you have initially listed the house for.

The hottest price range is in the $250k range. It slows a bit as you increase home size. The average across Maricopa County at this time is under 2.5 months.

Luxury homes, however are still over 100+ days.

You really need to look at the specific price range to get your answer.

To give you perspective: 1-4 months is considered a sellers market. 4-6 months is considered neutral and 6+ is considered a buyers market.

With that in mind, we are mostly in a sellers market. Our inventory is down across all price ranges. Some homes that are priced right and present well are selling at the first open house or sooner.

If a home is not selling it is over priced. The market will let you know.

Contact us and we can be more specific.

That would depend upon the price range. Lower priced homes sell quicker because there are more buyers in that pool than in the higher priced luxury home ranges.

The average is very misleading; neighborhood, condition, and of course price based on comparables drive timing. Fir accurate estimates a Realtor must assess the property, the neighborhood, the location relative to noise, views, etc...........Glad to offer expert opinion - just call

Hi Rose
It is so simple to figure that out. Will the property be listed at a 30 day price, a 60 day price, a 90 day price or even a two year price.
A good agent can tell you what the market is doing and where you need to be priced. Don't be surprised if it less than what you think. A few sellers are very shock by the sticker price these days.
Good luck, well it really doesn't have anything to do with luck, just price.

It will depend on pricing in this market and move in ready!
If the home is clean staged and priced well you will do well!

Feel free to contact me for a consultation!

Hi Rose,

It depends on a number of factors including your price point and what kind of property you own. Right now the more expensive homes are taking longer than the least expensive homes, the town homes and condos are taking longer than the single family homes. That is the rule of thumb. What it really comes down to is how appropriately your home is priced. An inappropriately priced home will not sell. We see people chasing the market down rather than being priced right to sell right away. It is wiser to move your property right away than wait 200+ days because your home wasn't priced properly, and in the meantime the home prices have slid another 10-15%. Your pricing has to be in the active market, vs just on the market.

Proper marketing of your home helps obviously as price is just one of the 4 P's of marketing but they all have to work together to move your home. 85255 where our office is located, has seen the inventory drop from over 27 months to under 15 months since the beginning of 2009, so it is improving quickly! But that is an average and that can be deceiving as the less expensive homes are moving very quickly, and the very expensive homes are moving very slowly.

Prices drop until inventory reaches between 4-7 months supply. Homes priced between 300-400k in 85255 are moving very, very well. It slows a bit between 400-500k, and over 500- 1 million it slows considerably. It picks up again between 1-3 million and then slows again over 3 million.

If you have any questions feel free to call myself or my wife Carmen @ 480 889 7304 or 602 791 0536. We are located at Pinnacle Peak and Pima.

The average days on market for active properties in the 85255 zip code is 230. For the sales in the last 30 days the last month the average days on market is 208. There is currently 14 months supply of inventory meaning that if nothing else came on the market it would take 14 months at the current rate of sales to deplete the market. That's actually down from 17.4% last month. The active listings are down and the pending listings are up which is a good trend to start seeing. Other things you might be interested in...the sales price to list price is 91.8% and the listing success ratio is 37%.

Please feel free to call or email if there is anything else I can do to be of assistance!
