What is considered a good number of days on market?

One thing I can tell you is that listed homes aren’t like fine wines—they don’t get better with age. There’s an old adage among us real estate agents I’d like to share with you: the first offer you get is almost always the highest.

In our market right now, your home should be sold in under 30 days. If it stays listed any longer than that, people will start to wonder what’s wrong with it. The key to avoiding this is to set it up right. Most of the listings our team takes on sell within the first two weeks because we take all the necessary steps to get the best price in the least amount of time.

"Unlike fine wines, listed homes don’t age well."

If you’re trying to sell a home and it’s been listed for longer than 30 days, we’d love the opportunity to show you some strategies to breathe some life back into it. If you’re thinking about selling a home in the near future, we’d also love to show you what we do to list a home correctly the first time around.

If you have any questions about what’s going on in the market, give us a call or email us and let us know how we can serve you. We look forward to hearing from you!
