Do you track the average number of days homes are listed (average) in specific markets?

I'd like to know what the average number of days for listing homes was last year.  Do you track this type of information.  What would have been typically of a home listed in LA County 30, 60, 90, 120 days?

thank you.

Yes and no; obviously it is important to know if you are buying; the market is "over saturated" if the average days on the market is over six months.

Zillow has some tools in this area, but you are better off contacting a local realtor as their electronic access to the multiple listings allow them to customise such reports very quickly.

For Zillow, for "recently sold", you can "filter" by sold in less than 1 month, less than 2 months, less than 3 months, less than 6 months, and up to one year.  And you can display in a list and sort by date sold.  It doesn't give specific days on the market or any averages.

For properties currently for sale, you can filter by days listed on zillow: 1 day, one week, 2 weeks, one month, and more than 3 months, and you can sort by days listed on zillow (only assending order).  The days listed on zillow displays in the list if you choose a list format rather than the map format, 30 properties per page.  It won't display the whole county at one time as that is two many records.  You can do it by neighborhood though.  And if you copy the data, you can average it, but as the properties have not sold yet, you need a higher number than what will be calcualated.

In general, the average days on the market in Los Angeles county is well over 6 months and probably closer to 9 months.  Of course there are some houses that sell in less than one day, and other that stay listed for well over a year.  In this economy, if you don't price to sell quickly, you will end up selling for less, or having to take it off the market.
