Good morning everyone! Another gloomy day here in Southern Indiana with the temperature dropping rapidly. I don't really like all the weather changes, but I guess it isn't up to me!
Hope everyone is having fun getting ready for Christmas. Only 15 more days! It is really hard to believe I know.

***This number does not reflect the times a home that is sold has been on the market before by (1) it's owner, (2) another Realtor whose listing expired, or (3) a listing cancelled and then relisted to generate new interest. This number in most instances does not refleect the number of days from contract to close which averages 30-45 days for most closings. In order to have a true picture of the date property is listed to the date of closing a seller would need to add prior "days for sale" activity to the above average days on market plus 30-45 days from contract to close. The above is not reflective of a specific area but takes into account all homes on the MLS that sold in the last 30 days and the last 12 months. Your agent can give you a specific report tailored to your area.
