How Long Will It Take To Sell My House?

You want your house to sell fast. And you may be wondering
how long the whole process is going to take. One way to get your answer? Work
with a local real estate agent.

They have the expertise to tell you how quickly homes are
selling in your area and what’s impacting timelines for other sellers. That way
you have realistic expectations and can work together to come up with a plan
that’s based on today’s market.

Here’s a high-level overview of just one of the factors a
great agent will walk you through – the supply of homes for sale and how that
impacts your process.

stale, and fewer people want to buy it.

The same goes for homes. New listings are the freshest and
most sought-after. But if a home isn’t priced correctly, doesn’t show well, or
it doesn’t have an effective sales or marketing strategy behind it, it can sit
on the market and become less appealing to buyers over time.

Help Your House Stand Out and Sell Quickly

By leaning on a pro, they’ll make sure your listing is fresh and doesn’t stick

Your agent will factor the recent inventory growth into
their plan and create a customized selling strategy for your house. The supply
of homes for sale can vary a lot by area. So they’ll do things like share their
valuable insights into what’s happening with supply in your market, help you
price your home correctly, and create a marketing plan that gets your home

trends and how to build a strategy around those factors, so your house is set
