About how long were most houses on the market before selling?

Asked by Lisa Carlson, Canoga Park, CA Mon May 21, 2012

If one son still has one more year of high school, how soon should we put the house on the market to try to schedule sale and graduation as close as possible?

Length of time on the market will vary by exact location, pricing, condition, size, etc.; therefore if looking to sell, invite a few local agents from different realty companies, ask for a market analysis, review the data, ask opinions and gor from there; market analyses are provided free of charge by most agents.

You'd need a crystal ball for that one. But as the others have stated it depends on lots of variables. Price, location, condition of the property, agents professional skills i.e. marketing, advertising, MLS presence, etc.

Hi Lisa,
When homes are priced right they sell. Sometimes, it can take up 60 to 90 days. However, the market is constantly changing and we don't know in a year from now where prices and interest rates will be. The condition of the house can also influence the time it will take to sell. No doubt, it's a great time to buy and inventory is really low.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. I can also provide you with a free market analysis of your home.
Best regards,
