How Long Will It Take To Sell My Home?

Posted by Patrick Galesloot on Monday, February 26th, 2018 at 1:58pm.

 Listing your home for sale involves a lot of preparation, and planning.  Many of our clients are seeking to move up (get a bigger home for their growing family) which involves finding the right home or building.

One of the key factors for any sale is, "how long does it take?".

Perhaps you will be surprised, but the average time a property takes to sell varies by location, and property type.  Currently, in Red Deer AB a single family detached home (a house) is the quickest when it comes to putting a "Sold" sign up.  The average for a house in Red Deer is 53 days.  By contrast, the average for an apartment style condo was 80 days.

These benchmarks change throughout the year, and will also vary by age, location and community.  We recommend that you consult with your REALTOR® about what is the best time to place your home on the market to achieve your real estate goal.
