The amount of time it's taking to sell a home in Gilbert, Arizona had an expected decrease in March after leaping upwards the previous month. On average in the month of March 2016 a home in Gilbert took 76.9 days on the market before finding a buyer. This was almost a 3 day decrease from February of 2016 when it was taking an average of 79.3 days to sell a home in Gilbert. However, going back a year to March 2015 the average home in Gilbert sold after 90.1 days on the market so we have certainly seen an improvement year over year. There are still some homes in price ranges around $200,000 which are selling almost as fast as they are being placed up for sale, and yet some other homes in higher price ranges are taking longer than the average to sell.
The most competitive price range in Gilbert, Arizona currently is that of the first time home buyer between $200,000 and $250,000. Homes in that price range are being bought up the quickest and some are receiving multiple offers within the first few weeks of being listed for sale.
We are now in the beginning stages of the busy Spring and Summer selling season. Historically it will begin taking less time to sell a property as there are more buyers during this time of year. If you're a buyer, you want to see the Days on Market increase because for you that means you have more time to think about a home before needing to make an offer. If you're a seller you want to list your house sooner rather than later. The Spring and Summer time real estate market will bring more listings and more homes competing against yours for the eyes and dollars of buyers. Armed with a little knowledge and a hard-working real estate agent from Zion Realty buying or selling a home will be a little less stressful!
