Time on the Market Drops to New Low in 2017 | MyKCM


According to recently released data from the National Association of Realtors (NAR), the median amount of time a home
spent on the market hit an all-time low of only three weeks in 2017.

Strong buyer demand, a good economy, and a low inventory of new and existing homes for sale created the perfect storm
to accelerate the time between listing and signing a contract. The time needed to sell a home has dropped substantially since
its highest mark of 11 weeks in 2012.

The chart below shows the median weeks on the market from 1987 to today.
