I take a % of the commission for the lease and collect the rest at the time the purchase takes place. This is all decided at the time we write it up. Call with any questions 402 676-1457 ... more

I recommend you hire a licensed appraiser to provide you with a full report to determine the sale price.

There is no exact answer available. The statistics you may see for Days on the Market are not accurate because we can only tell the days on the market for a house that is currently listed.

In other words, if a house was listed previously for 120 days, for instance, and then re-listed by another company and sells in 14 days, the time goes back to zero, andthe Days on Market would show 14 days which is not a true picture. The only way to get a true average would be to do a hand search.

Different home price ranges have different average market times. A home in the $100,000 range generally would not take as long to sell as a $500,000 home.

A full-time, experienced Realtor should be able to give you an "educated guess" based on your area, price range, condition, etc. Hope this helps.

Ruth...

I can give you average DOM for homes SOLD in the Omaha Metro last month (65) and average DOM for homes that went under contract last month (68). But that doesn't give the whole picture. For instance, the decent (or easily fixed-up) foreclosures and HUD repos are snapped up quickly by investors which make up a good percentage of the buyers right now. Improperly priced homes and BAD proeprties linger on the market and then may be relisted a number of times. The Omaha Area Board of Realtors shopped showing Cumulative Days on Market (CDOM) so it's impossible to tell (except by indivisual property research) how long those have been on the market.

The best way to get an idea of of how fast your home might sell (when priced correctly) is to get in touch with a REALTOR for a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA).

Hope this helps.

Market is very strong for homes in good condition, well-staged, below the $250,000 price range.
I'm sensing a slow return of the new custom home building.
The extension and expansion of the tax credit should help.

Billie Atkinson answered:
Mary,
If you google Omaha rentals or Omaha homes for rent, there are several web sites with rentals.
If you want to purchase a home, you will need to consider how long you will be here to decide if that
is the best way to go. If you will only be here for 2-3 years, I recommend renting. I can send you a selection of homes if you wish to purchase.
