How Long Does it Take to Sell a House?

Real Estate Agent with Venture | Sotheby’s International Realty BRE# 00843458

In a buyer’s market, meaning the supply of homes exceeds the demand of homes, it could take months before you get a decent offer. On the other hand, in a seller’s market, you could get an offer in a matter of days!


Still, there’s so much we can do to improve our chances of selling regardless of the type of market we’re in!

What makes a house sell quickly?


Some things you have control over, like the condition of the house and the price. While some, you don’t, like the age of the house and nearby amenities.


A house in good condition will sell a lot faster than a house that is in serious need of repairs. You see, a buyer wants a house that is move-in ready. It’s really worth so much knowing that you can live in a home immediately after you buy it.


Next thing to consider is the price. An overpriced home will get scoffed at and ignored completely by any serious buyer. Pricing your Ruby Hill home in Pleasanton right will attract the proper buyers who are interested in what you have to offer.


Buyers tend to prefer homes with great locations. Do you live near the waterfront? Does your home have fantastic views? Is it close to golfing centers or tennis courts? What about schools and workplaces?


Some buyers want new homes, while others want homes that have been lived in. Others even prefer historic homes, or those with a story.


Marketing to Sell


Henry Ford once said, “A man who stops advertising to save money is like a man who stops a clock to save time.”


Invest in the best photos you can get. Photos are the first impression, and good ones get buyers to call for an appointment.


Prepare your home in every possible way. When you have people come over to see the house, they can be very critical, even if they look like they are having a good time.


Make sure everything is super clean. That, I cannot stress enough. Get rid of any form of clutter, and keep the things you don’t use on a daily basis away in storage.


Your real estate agent will use every means possible to market your home. A good agent will use social media, the Internet, word-of-mouth, and existing contacts with previous clients and other agents to get your home as many offers in the least amount of time.

This is so true, "Some things you have control over, like the condition of the house and the price. While some, you don’t, like the age of the house and nearby amenities."

A home really does need to be super clean, neat, etc. That with the right price can get the home sold quickly.

I can give an educated guess, but I've often been surprised by reality.
