That question can be helpful but you do not want to be the average house. The average house is typically overpriced which causes it to sit on the market for longer than a house that is priced right to start.. The market determines the price and if you price it correctly and your home is turnkey and in the best possible condition you will attract an offer much faster than the average listing.
When speaking with possible Realtors to list your home don't necessarily go with the one with the highest listing price. Go with the one who supports the listing price with market data specific to your home.
You only have one chance when listing your home. There are people searching right now that are waiting for it to hit the market. Price it right from the beginning and you will get maximum showings and exposure which will translate into more potential offers. It's a numbers game. Pricing your home too high takes potential buyers that will never see your house to begin with.
After writing this I see that you are a home buyer. As you look you will see that homes you are interested in may have multiple offers or others that are interested. These homes are the ones that will sell before the average home. My buyers tend to buy homes that are on the market for 30 days or less. We look at other homes on the market longer but there is usually a reason for that as I have discussed and often times there is no interest.
So to answer your question. Each home stands on its own. When you find a home that meets most of your criteria go for it because there is a good chance that somebody else will.
Good luck with your search.

There is a lot of homes on the market which makes home stay on longer because the buyer is not in a hurry anymore because there is so much to look at and it is hard for them to make that decision on which to buy because more keep coming. If you want it to sell fast, make sure the home is ready for the market , fix , update and clean, and price it right at Market Value or below. If you have time, then price according to your Realtors advice and make sure you home is market ready, can be shown at all times and the photos on line are the best they can be.
Average is 6-8 months for priced well, ready to sell homes. Some longer, some shorter. but that would be a good average.
Anyother questions, I will be happy to answer.
Best of luck .. Bruce
