Well, Hi David, when I see this type of question on Trulia, and believe me you are not the first one and you will not be the last asking this question, here is my answer to you, which is not a number..... as you will soon realize:
Why would that number in a certain zip code help you, I am assuming you are or may be a seller?
and you are trying to figure out how long it may take before your home will go under contract and close and sell.....
Well no number will give you that guarantee....
Selling quickly is achieved if and when you prepare your home BEST with the help of an experienced
Realtor and eventually professional home stager, get everything fixed, great curb appeal, nicely painted in en vogue current colors etc. etc. and then price right, more on the mid or bottom of the
market, it will bring in more potential buyers
this informaiton you can receive only from an experienced local Realtor in your area in TX
as your trusted Realtor will not compare your home to all that has sold in your zip code, but
compare your home to similar homes by size, construction, lot size, age etc. that have recently sold in your area or the expanded area,and then also compare your price range you are considering
to what is on the market and has sold, in order to see if those homes are newer, bigger, etc.
So you see there is a bit more involved than just during the last 6 months so many homes have been on the market and so many have sold...
And so what if that simple math give you an average number of 150 days, does this mean your
home will sell on day 1, or day 60, on day 150 or even later....
Remember prepare your home well, let the buyers who are looking at it from the outside and inside fall in love, and make sure it is price very very competitively, buyers have a lot to look at.
Your trusted Realtor will be able to guide you through this complicated process and decision making process and potential changes throughout.....
Good Luck to you, how is the weather in TX, Chicago recently had some wonderful hot days in the 80's and 90's and we love it.
