Normally the most activity a seller will see is in the first 2 weeks on the market. It is new and there may be buyers out there who have been waiting on your home to come on the market. You could get an offer in those first 2 weeks…but it could easily take longer than that.
Many homeowners become aggravated about the length of time it takes their house to sell. It can lead to hard feelings and frustration with your agent who may be doing all they can to generate an offer.
It is interesting though that when a home does sell quickly like in the first 2 weeks, some homeowners become a little nervous that it happened too quickly and they are not quite ready or that they “gave their house away” because maybe it was not priced high enough. It is almost always just an indication that the home was priced appropriately when an offer comes quickly. When this happens, some sellers may chose to make a decision their realtor would not have advised them to do such as wait for a better offer or even increase their price…only to find out weeks later this was a mistake.
Also, homeowners can become frustrated that they have had their home on the market for a few months with no offers. A few months may not be long at all, depending on the current market and the particulars of the home. (location, price, etc)
An ideal time seems to be if a home sells within the first 2 months on the market.
In reality, there is no way to truly predict how long it will take to sell your home, or any other home. The market fluctuates and each home is unique in how long it will take to sell.
Statistics can be of some help to predict how long your home will be on the market, but again there is no absolute formula to tell a seller how long it will take to get an offer.
