It all depends on the pricing of your home, most sellers are still stuck in the market from five yrs ago. Most realtors are part time and are looking for just a listing so they sometimes let the seller's dictate to them what price they should list therehouse at instead of being honest with them and telling them the real price of their home in fear of losing a listing. The fact of the matter is it's all about the condition, the location, and the pricing. But all you can really control is the price if you are un-realistic with the price of your home and so is your realtor you home will sit on the market for a long time, if you are priced correctly then you home will sell accoridly in a timely fashion. Most homes priced correctly you are looking at a turn around of a month or two. If your hom is over priced and you are chasing the market well, not only will you be chasing the market but you will be chasing away people from putting offers in on your home.
