How Fast Will My House Sell?

A couple of days ago, I shared on my Facebook page some local and national statistics about how many days it takes for a house to sell in this current market.

I would like to take this opportunity to clarify one thing: one of the driving factor behind this data is the amount of inventory available to the buyers.  This is determined by the supply of homes expressed in month(s), i.e. the length of time it would take to sell all the homes currently offered for sale IF no new listing is added to the mix.

Note that a 1 to 2 month supply is considered a “shortage”, a 3 to 4 month supply is considered “low” and a 5 to 6 month supply is “healthy”.

Here is the state of the market per price point:

Up to $249,999: 1.1 month supply

$250,000-$ 349,999: 0.8 month supply

$350,000-$499,999: 1.0 month supply

$500,000-$749,999: 2.8 month supply

$750,000-$999,999: 9.5 month supply

$1,000,000+: 9.8 month supply

Final note: With 98% of the sales occurring under the $750,000 price point, 56% of the homes sell on average in the first 30 days.
