Good answers below that show that averages may not mean much. Houses in very good shape that don't need any work and are priced at today's market are moving much faster. Homes newer than 10 years (or can compare favorably to these) are moving in 60 days. We target our listings to be on market no longer than 60 days. We help with appropriate staging or updating as needed. Whoever buys your home will want to be settled in before school starts.
Our Realtors will analyze your home compared to the market, tour comps with you, and prepare a Price Trend Analysis so we can really understand how the micro market in your area is behaving.
We've included the link to last month's Minnetonka Market Update below. Average Days on Market? About 200.
Would a certain home go faster? If we're talking averages (mean, medians and modes), by definition the numbers for some homes may be outliers...some below average, some above average.
All good news for buyers, though.
Recently updated homes always sell faster than average, provided that the price asked is not higher than average. Best answer will come from a Realtor who tours your home. I would be willing to do that along with others. Should be no problem getting three or four good opinions of value.
