Average selling time for a home can vary and depends on certain variables. Such things to keep in mind when selling your home are: pricing your home properly (the most important factor), effective advertising (using online marketing tools can help track the activity on your home), having a proactive and experienced real estate agent who will devote his/her time and energy to selling your home (constant communication with the client and who knows how to effectively market the property), and market activity in the area.
If you hire an experienced real estate agent, who has the marketing resources to effectively market and sell your property then you should have potential buyers within 30 days. It is important to make sure that any buyer that wants to make an offer on your home that they are pre-approved (rather than pre-qualified). This way the seller has the peace of mind that the buyer can get a mortgage (if necessary) and that the deal will not fall apart at the end due to lack of funds. Hopefully, if you have a pre approved buyer within 30 days then it becomes a matter of having the attorneys draft the sales contract and the bank approving the mortgage. The time for this process can vary depending on the attorney and the lender. Once the contracts are drafted and the mortgage approved then the closing date is set. Usually, as long as everything runs smoothly as possible, the whole process should not take extremely long.
