How Long Does it Take to Sell a Home in Gainesville, VA?

As with most real estate questions, the answer depends. As of right now, the last ninety days of real estate activity in Gainesville, VA shows that single family homes that sold during that 8936 Yellowleg Court in Gainesville, VA (oriced at $415K) went under contract in 4 days.time went under contract in an average of fifty-five days.  Those that went under contract during  the same time period were under contract in an average of fifty-seven days.  That would suggest that it takes an average of nearly two months to sell a Gainesville, VA home.

On February 21st (2014,) I listed a Gainesville single family home for $415K in Meadows at Morris Farm.  Four days later it was under contract.

So part of what the answer to the question of how long it takes to sell a Gainesville, VA home would be, it depends on who you hire to list it.  When I counsel Gainesville home owners, I speak realistically about price and market conditions.  I also believe that how a Gainesville home owner's property shows online is of critical importance.  Taking the time to get together a collection of the property's best photos and what the community has to offer is key to getting a buyer's attention these days.  

Other factors will include what your home and community has to offer and what buyer is for your particular style of home.

If you want to sell your Gainesville, VA home quickly, and for the most money, give me call and let's talk about the market.

Bob:  I think it's good news anytime a home goes under contract quickly, especially when they are priced at the higher end of the market trend, as this one was.

How a home shows online is so hugely important it can make the difference between a buyer saying, Hey, let's go see Chris Ann's listing or you know what, let's skip that other agent's listing because it looks so terrible.

Jon:  Wish the Short Sales were moving faster.  Banks are demanding prices at the top of current market value.
