It can take an average of 55 to 70 days to sell a home. This includes 25 days on the market and 30 to 45 days to close.

These are all things we consider when listing your home.
The first step we would do as your real estate agent is to perform a comparative market analysis (CMA) on your home. To do this, we find homes in your neighborhood that have similar features.

We will provide you with an estimated net sheet that can give you an idea of what to expect.
