If the house, or any property for that matter, is priced right it will not "sit" on the market longer than a few weeks :)

Good Morning Mr. Marlon,
So many factors decide on how many days on the market. If the home is priced right, and in certain price groups,in good shape ect. they are getting offers in days. If I can help with any of your buying or selling needs please let me know.

Hi Mr Marlon Morris. If the house is priced right and accessible to buyers, it will have an offer within 7 days. If the house is over-priced it will stay longer on the market. I pull comparables on properties before I submit an offer to make sure my buyer is getting a fair price. If I represent the seller then I try to get a little more depending on the property's condition. I hope this helps. Are you a seller or a buyer? Thanks, Maxine 954-816-5024

Hi Marlon,

As you can see from some of the replies you have gotten already, this is kind of a tough question to answer. I can tell you that we are now in a sellers market again. If you have a 3/2 that is in fairly good condition, with no serious issues, access to showings and you are priced in line with the market, you can expect to be under contract within 30 days. Most of our inventory is under contract within the first 2 weeks and has multiple offers.

Keep in mind that if you are talking about an area that has a higher price point $400,000 and up, the DOM will always be higher. Also, if it is a short sale transaction, you can easily add on 60 to 90 days for the lender to approve the sale.

I hope I was able to help. Please contact me if you need additional information

There are many factors that effect the days on market.

* Location - Every area is different.
* Type of sale ( short sale, regular sale, foreclosure )
* How is the home priced? Is it priced at market value, above market value or below market value?
* Condition of Home
* Available inventory

There is no across the board average..... the above items influence the days on market.

There is no correct answer to your question. Every property is different. The price, condition and the location have a lot of do with the amount of time a property is on the market. If it is price right and in the right location a house can go under contract in just a few days. While an overpriced home can sit on the market until the listing expires. A Realtor has all of the tools to help you make the right decision when it comes to pricing your home.

Mr. Morris, the average matters little unless you've identified your reason for sale:

Do you have a regular sale, with a house in good condition?
Do you owe the bank more than the house is currently worth (short sale)?
Are you trying to maximize price or minimize your days on market?

A low price will get it sold quickly.... but is that your goal. Give me a call, and I can give you better advice.
