Forgot to add, Just because the average days on market may be about 4 months doesn't mean your home or other's homes can't sell in 30 days or less. Paula Bean wrote out some of the most important things that help determine how long it will take for YOUR particular home to sell.

According to the latest market pulse statistics, in Orange and Seminole County the average time on the market (time until a contract is signed) is now at 112 days, and this number has been steadily increasing over the past 24 months.

If you wanted this information to determine how long it should take to sell your home, I wouldn't pay too much attention to it, as real estate is a highly local market. The average days on market can and will be very different depending on what neighborhood you live in, and what type of property you own (SFH, Condo, Townhome).

As other's have stated below, only a local realtor can do this research effectively for you after you give them the specific home/area you would like to research.

Orlando's real estate market went from seller market, to buyers market and back to sellers marker.
What market do you think is next?

Orlando is certainly not a sellers market.

The selling time on any property will depend on the market, is it a sellers market with low inventory or is it a buyers market with a high inventory. Other things to consider it the price range, a home that is in the upper price range lets say, $800,000 to $900,000 will take longer than a home in the $200,000 to $300,000 price range for obvious reasons. Other things to consider are the location, condition and the biggest factor of all is the asking price. If your home is worth $200,000 but you think you can squeeze $250,000 out of it, your chances of selling in any time frame is very low.

The Wemert Group of Keller Williams Advantage 2 Realty in Orlando, FL averages 26 days on the market. The overall board average is closer to 70 days on the market. If you have a home that is priced in the appropriate price bracket (not necessarily underpriced), a favorable lot/location, and the home shows well, buyers are still quick to make offers. The homes that are sitting on the market for longer than 30 days are most likely overpriced, show poorly, marketed poorly, or have some sort of stigma.

Hi Vanessa,

That depends on several factors. Location, condition and price (most importantly). If the house is priced accordingly, the house should sell within 45-60 days or less. Quite often I have seen homes selling within few days recently though. There are many tricks to get the offers coming in. From open houses to wide online marketing - my tool bag is full of ways to get your home sold.

If you have any further questions - please call me at 321-388-6856

It depends on the area of town your house is located but across the board the inventory in Orlando is low so if a home is priced correctly and it shows well, it will move pretty quickly right now. Interest rates went back down and should stay that way until the end of the year so it is a good time to sell.

It depends, on which neighborhood, how much the home is worth, what the condition of the home is in. Send me an email for further assistance.

Your zip code shows up at 32824 which is the Meadow Woods area. My family lives there, it's a hot area right now due to its proximity to Lake Nona and Hunters Creek (where I live). I would love the opportunity to meet with you to discuss what is the best plan and price to sell your home!

Wow, a six year old question. This was about the time Trulia got started. Looks like one planted by Trulia's staff. Days to sale is currently averaging about 85 days. (That's from listing to close.) Quite a bit different than Greg's answer from almost six years ago.

If you price appropriately, you can sell in days. In order to price correctly, it's critical you work with a knowledgable Realtor, and your goals are realistic. It's a sellers market, but you still need to keep your pricing in line with comparable properties or you may have issues with it falling short for appraisal.

If you'd like an honest market analysis, please get in touch with me. I give my clients nothing but the ugly truth.

The average seems to be around 115 to 125 days. It also depends on the area of Orlando you live in, your PRICE, your curb appeal, and how well your home shows compared to others in your area. It doesn't do any good to start out high and slowly lower the price. By the time you get to a fair market value, people have it set in their minds that your property is over priced.

Time is a variable because the home needs to show well,be in a desirable area ( location,Location,Location) and be marketed effectively,
The average is now about 120 days.

There is no answer to this question without knowing more information, but I can tell you this:
It depends on several things:


I was born here and have worked in this market almost 30 years. I mostly spend my time training agents all over the U.S, rather than selling, but I do take on a few deals to keep my finger on the pulse. If you want to email me, I'll be happy to chat with you about your particular situation, and if I can't help you, I'd be happy to refer you to someone who can. After almost 30 years - I can tell you who can best help you accomplish your goals.

Feel free to email me at PaulaBean@HomeOrlando.com. Because I am a real estate consultant, I am going to ask you some questions about your situation, motivation, condition, etc.....then I'll give you some options.

Best wishes, and happy holidays to all!

Find yourself a Realtor in Orlando to better answer your question...
Ask for reports that show the following relative to the house you are selling:
Size of houses
Age of houses
And get comps of yours that shows solds, how long they were on the market
