You’ve made the decision that it’s time to sell your home. Maybe you’re moving out of the area altogether, expanding your family, or perhaps downsizing to something smaller. You’re ready to have the For Sale sign placed prominently on your front lawn, but you’re also feeling anxious and scared about how long this whole process is going to take. Although there are many factors that contribute to how long it can take to sell your home, don’t get spooked into thinking you can’t sell your home quickly. 


Selling Your Home the Traditional Way

According to Zillow, the average length of time in 2018 that a home sat on the market (since April 2018), was 68 days. Going the traditional route of signing with a Realtor, there are many factors that determine just how long it will take to sell your home.  


•Location

A home located in or near a major city will most likely sell sooner than a more rurally located home.

•Price is Right? 

If your home is priced too high, it may sit without offers. If your agent has held numerous open houses and showings but no offers are coming in, it’s time to rethink your strategy.

•Home Conditions Matter

If you want your home to sell, make it look presentable. Making major renovations may depend on how much you want to spend, but even minor repairs like fresh paint and new carpeting make a difference. That goes for the curb appeal of your home, too. Yard clean-up and flower/shrub plantings can make a difference to an interested buyer.

•Tis the Season

The time of year can play a role. Selling your home in the middle of winter will take more time than listing it in the spring. Who goes house hunting during a snowstorm?

•Post Offer To-Do's
If an offer is made and you’ve accepted it, the waiting process isn’t finished so don’t pack your bags just yet. Home inspection, possible re-negotiation after inspection, and closing are all part of the process. The home sale isn’t a done deal until the closing goes through.
