Average days on market by zip code.

Where do I go to look up the average number of days houses have been on the market in any particular zip code?  I don't want the MEDIAN, I want the AVERAGE.

Thanks in advance

Yeah sure thing. Then why post this on a year and half old question. Think McFly...think

We do, however, need to take into consideration where the OP is from. While Torrance CA's seasonal market might be Spring/Summer, that is absolutely not the case in all areas of the US. In fact, here in the Northeast our seasonal market is Spring & Fall. Due to the fact that we don't live in a mild year round climate like California the majority of the Northeast vacations in the Summer months & home sales are put on hold until the Fall. Also, with respect to the zip code, where is the OP from? I agree that there are certain zip codes that have a diversity of high income/low income as well as demand among buyers. There are also zip codes that are neither low income or high income but rather somewhere in between and pretty even as far as demand goes. One big thing that should be considered is the time frame. For example, DOM (days on the market) will be extremely different in the last quarter of 2012 than the first quarter of 2013. With that said, the answer to the OP is this: Call a local real estate agent and ask them to send you comps within 1/2 mile of your home that have sold in the last 6 months. On that MLS listing you will find the Days on the Market. Add up the DOM and divide by the number of homes and there you have the most accurate, up-to-date answer to your question.

There are three statistical types of average: mean, median and mode.   Therefore, perhaps you are requesting the mean days on the market?    

Which region are you interested in?

As a realtor, we are educated in determining property values much like appraisers.  One of the first lessons in the textbook teaches us that a zip code can hold many different neighborhoods - from low income to high end and everything in between. Different neighborhood have different "demand" among buyers.  The "supply" of homes that satisfies the potential buyers in a neighborhood is critical to its price and the number of days it takes to sell the home on the open market.  To review home values or market activity by average across an entire zipcode doesn't do enough to represent the homes in all the different neighborhoods.

This is why Zillow's Zestimate is often critisized. 

It would be more accurate to contact a real estate agent in the local area.  S/he can give you more specific information regarding the price range and neighborhoods you are most interested in.  Realtors provide this information for free. 

Also remember, real estate is also a seasonal market.  Most homes sell in the Spring and Summer months, and slow during the fall and winter.  This is pattern is annual
