With home prices hitting record highs across the country, plenty of homeowners may decide the time is ripe to sell. So how long does it take to sell a house now?
In today’s red-hot seller’s market, homes are getting snapped up by buyers faster than ever. Yet even in this best-case scenario, it will take at least a month, more typically three months, for sellers to prepare their home and close the deal. If extensive repairs are needed or your property is not priced or presented properly, it could take longer still.
“In our Spring 2022 Home Sellers survey, 2 in 5 recent sellers reported that it took more time than expected,” says Danielle Hale, chief economist for Realtor.com®.
