The average home's time on market is based on the competativeness of it's price and current market conditions. Overpriced homes always take longer and normally sell for less.

The market is always changeing and all areas are different. It also depends largely on the condition of the home and how well it's priced. If it is priced well it should sell pretty quick

Days on the market does vary by exact location, pricing, property size, condition, etc.; if looking to sell, consider contacting and inviting a few local agents from different realty companies, ask for a cma--comparative market analysis, review the data, ask opinions, and go from there....

Housing markets and prices are very "local". So is the average days on market in your area. Any local Realtor can provide you the "Average Days on Market" you seek as that information is in your local MLS (Multiple Listing Service).

It all depends on if the home is priced right to sell in the current market. If it is is usually sells fast. If not it will accumulate market time.

...and it depends on who you're asking.
In some cases if you're asking a seller, the answer is "too long".

It depends on the price. If it is priced right it will sell quickly. If the price is too high, it could take months.
