Does the number of days on market REALLY matter??

You just finished a listing presentation with your agent, and they give you what they suggest your price be listed at. This is $15,000 less than what you were thinking it should be listed at and you are very adamant about it being listed at your price. The listing agent keeps talking about days on market and how important that is. Does that really matter??

Yes, days on market is a huge factor when your home is for sale. When your home first hits the market, it hits every agents Hot Sheet as a new listing. Any potential buyer that has a search going in which your home fits their criteria, it emails them to let them know your home just came on the market. This is now a HOT listing that everyone wants to see. If your home is overpriced, they will look at it and pass it right over.

Once your home has been on the market for a few weeks, it becomes a stale listing. Once you start reducing, buyers now see this as a listing where the seller needs to sell and they feel they can get a bargain. The longer the home sits on the market, the more desperate the seller seems, and the lower the offers come in from buyers.

You can really sabotage your listing and the price you will get for it if you want to play the waiting game. Don’t agree to list your property high for a period of time just to see what kind of activity it gets. If you want to get your home sold for top dollar, the number of days on the market will make a huge difference in this.
