Average Days on Market in the Triangle

Like last month, the average days on the market for homes in the entire Triangle area last month was 93 days (just over 3 months).  Something to keep in mind with the average days on market is that currently there is an under supply of homes in the lower price ranges and an over supply of homes in the higher price ranges.  93 days is a good indication for Triangle home sellers who are selling their homes for less than around $200,000.  For those home sellers with homes in the upwards of $800,000 and higher those average days on market is closer to 10 months.  What to expect in terms of length of time on the market before selling depends greatly on specific location, desirability, and price bracket.

The low and high per area for days on market before closing in November were Holly Springs averaging (an incredibly impressive) 42 days, and Garner with an average of 110 days (note: the “Triangle area” includes other areas outside of the specific areas we cover above); the other Triangle areas noted above fall between the two (see chart outlining the average days on market for the breakdown).
