Not sure if you have sold your home yet and if you haven't, the marketing time is starting to take a bit longer especially if priced too high.  More homes coming on the market and average marketing time (to get an offer could be 30 days or less if priced right.  If over priced the house could sit on the market for 120 days as you reduce the price.  I handle the Fairfield/Rancho Solano/Green Valley areas should you be interested in listing your home.
Choose someone with the experience that feels confident about pricing your home and someone you feel will get the job done.

Wow, that can be answered in so many ways. In 2014 there are many, factors that come to mind when  selling a home. Let's just say if it's priced right, marketed properly, shows well, in a decent neighborhood, with only minor to no repairs and the seller is mentally ready to sell. The property can sell anywhere from 4-40 days. There is a vast majority of ALL CASH buyers in this market in Fairfield. If you don't have CASH it can be difficult but not impossible to buy quicker. Our inventory is low, and the buyers are plenty. Fairfield is a military town, Suisun, and Vacaville are growing areas as well. Right now a lot of agents are underpricing the homes. In Fairfield there are bidding wars, and basically the property ends up getting bid sometimes anywhere from 50-100K or more over the asking price. Who would have known. Either way, it's still a good deal because the prices are no where close to where they were back in 2005 or 2004. I put a home on the market at 4:30a.m. and I got 3 phone calls and two emails with offers by 7:00a.m. that same morning.

The length of time on the market depends on many factors such as price of the home, marketing, as well as the condition of the home with pricing being the main factor. Overpricing a home may let it sit on the market longer but underpricing it may cost you to lose some money. If you have not already, contact a realtor to get a comparative market analysis if you are looking to sell. A lot of agents would be more than willing to do one for you. This is usually a free service realtors do to earn your business or referrals.

The inventory is very low right now so offers are flying in. So it's really about getting the right offer. Getting a good feel for the market is very important.

THank you for your information. This home is owned out-right. I am just wondering how long it takes to, actually, sell the house. Are homes moving quickly, yet? I do not mean the closing process.

The answer to your question will be determined by the type of sale. If you are talking about a short sale it may be 4 to 5 months or longer. If you have enough equity in the home and its a regular sale you can count on closing escrow with 30 to 45 days from an accepted contract. If your sale is a probate sale it will depend on what phase of the probate process you are in.
