Do you have your home on the market? Your profile says that you are a home seller.

You should know that regardless of the averages, homes that are properly prepared for sale, marketed correctly, and priced right, should sell within thirty days. Statistics show that homes that sell within the first month sell closest to asking price. As a home sits on the market, it loses value. In my MLS sales within 30 days are 98.7% of asking. At 120 days, that drops to 92.3%.

Many times people ask "Why isn't my home selling?". Ask your REaltor to show you what homes ARE selling. Chances are Realtors are not on vacation, they are out showing the homes that offer their buyers the most value. The easiest way to add value is to lower the price.

Good luck.
