How Long will it Take to Sell my Summerville Home?

Real Estate for Sale in Summerville, SC

“How Long will it take to sell my home?”

I get asked this question almost every time I go out on a listing appointment. It is a fair question and one that most people want to know.  While I can not guarantee a certain amount of days, after 20 years in the real estate business, I have a pretty good idea.

Each price range has its own answer to this question and I’ve seen the answer vary a lot in the past twenty years.  Currently, these are the statistics for Summerville houses on the market:

  • Houses under 150K -54 days
  • Houses between 150-250K – 46 days
  • Houses between 250-350K-71 days
  • Houses between 350-500K – 71 days
  • Houses over $500K – 93 days

Meeting with me and discussing your home will help us figure out the right price for your home and help me get it sold in the least amount of time with the least amount of hassle for you.  (Read more about “What to do before you List Your Home”)
