It takes as little as a month to start receiving offers after putting a house on the market. It can take another two to three months before the deal closes, not to mention more time if there are loans that need to be approved.
The average time to sell a house depends on a number of factors, including the price and how long it takes for a deal to close. It is difficult to determine an accurate amount of time to sell a house since the area, housing market and competition are all factors that come into play. In a desirable neighborhood with a moderate price, houses may get offers within days or weeks, while other areas may not get an offer for several months.
