Cincinnati Home Sales – Days On Market

Part of being a good real estate agent is understanding how to price a home to sell. The facts are that if your home is initially priced correctly it will sell and not languish on the market. Looking at the inventory within our office we saw a significant disparity between Days on Market between the sold / pending and what is active. SALABLE properties spent an average of just 88 days on the market while properties waiting to sell average 143 days on the
market – and they’re NOT SOLD YET! Look over the chart at our sample data from our office:

As home sellers it is important to always remember that you home is worth what the buyer is willing to pay for it. In a slower market sellers must balance their desires for maximum price with an understanding that an overpriced listing could sit idle for well over a year, and will most likely sell only after numerous price reductions. If you are looking to move up in this market read our November post on the price and inventory of the Cincinnati housing market. You will learn how moving into a larger home makes financial sense in the long run if you do it is a slower market.
