Hi Jeanne,
If you're still getting ready to list your house, here's the basic answer to how long it will be on the market:
According to a new report just release by the National Assoc. of Realtors, the average Days On Market is now 69 days. Like with everything else in life...there's more to the story.
My experience with selling a lot of homes in and around Concord Township is it's got more to do with marketing and pricing than any other factor. I can tell you that as a marketing specialist with a real estate license, even my superior marketing of your home won't cause it to sell if it's overpriced. I always attract an above average amount of showings to my listings, yet anytime it's overpriced, that home simply will not get an offer. No matter HOW nice it is or what school district it's in.
Obviously, your home will sit on the market for more than 69 days if we don't price it correctly from the start. The last 3 properties I sold all had offers in a 40 days or less, so it IS possible to be one of the few that sell quickly.
There are other factors too that we can discuss, and they're important too and will get you more money when you sell.
I hope this helps!!
I'm easily reached at 610-496-4100 for a free consultation.

Using realtors, 90%-92% sale price. Without any realtors, 96%-99%. Subtract loan payoff, what's left is in your pocket

Any local agent should be able to provide the information, however keep in mind that the figure has no bearing in today's market....

Under the circumstances, I can't imagine that your agent won't work out something fair with you. I know I would. I had a similar thing happen. I only had the home listed for a coupe of weeks. I agreed to release the seller - and he agreed to reimburse me for my out-of-pocket expenses up to that point. It was fair all around. He has since referred 2 clients to me.

Your other option, as Jefferson that you can withdraw the house from the market, wait it out till the listing period is over, and then sell it to your brother.

Look - these things happen...................I could never, in good faith, try to force a seller to pay me a full commission under these circumstances.

Good luck!
Hope your brother is paying you a great price! haha

(Not just those properties actually listed on the Historical Registry, but those in the historical time frame with features that absolutely add value?)

In today's market, it is imperative to price your house aggressively, reduce the price.

Clarence, I agree with Keith that a real estate pro should not be asking the questions that you are asking.

That being said, the answers that you have received are only as good as the qualifications of the 'real estate pro' that is writing them. Since info on Trulia is input by individuals, like yourself, you might want to check out their profiles before putting too much weight on individual answers.
Just a thought.
