You ask, What is the average time homes are sitting on the market prior to being sold? Does it make the home "stale"?
Questions of this type remind me that all sales are made locally. So the data you seek is in Shelburne, and you might want to ask your local Realtor. In answer to the 2nd part, would a home become stale? Yes, absolutely.
And a stale home doesn't get the showings it deserves. Buyers have seen the photos, Realtors have brought people past, and they have rejected the house probably for price considerations. Now when you lower the price, they recall that house and can't remember why they didn't like it.
If a house gets stale, do two things. Lower the price and CHANGE ALL THE PHOTOS.

"Average days on the Market" varies from one location to another. REALTOR magazine justposted an article with the national statistics for inventory of homes presently at a 9.9 month supply.
This information is not the same as "average days on market" but it does provide an awareness for the national invetory of homes.
