A couple of months ago I had a listing that sold in less than a week but after it was on the market for 3 days the seller called me in a panic. She was afraid that her home wasn’t going to sell because we only had two showings the first day, one showing the second day and no showings the third day that is was on the market.
I think it is important to understand how long it takes to sell a home. Sometimes it takes more than three days. On average St. Paul homes are on the market for an average of 72 days before they are sold and for condos the number is closer to 80 days.
No one likes to be average. Home buyers just love a bargain. The homes that sell the fastest are the homes that are priced toward the bottom of their price range rather than the top. If it seems like your home has been on the market too long ask your agent what the average days on market are in your neighborhood. We can also figure out what the average is for a home like yours.
