Simply put, "Days-on-Market" tells you how long the active properties currently for sale, in aggregate, have been on the market (a.k.a. "time on market"). Said otherwise- "of the active listings currently available for sale - how long have they been for sale?"
Compare this to "Time to sale" which is used to describe only those selected properties that sold and is a statistically different measurement. "Time to sale" only looks at those properties that sold vs "time on market" which looks at all active listings as defined above.
Most importantly, while the values of the Altos Research "days on market" and the "time to sale" may not match, you'll find that these numbers are closely correlated. Both values will rise in weaker markets and fall in stronger markets.

If living in a small town appeals to you, let's talk about how to make that dream a reality in the Village of Metamora.
