Some may think short sales that take forever for lender approval inflates the DOM but it doesn't as the number reflects listing date until contract.
But if you are selling your Brevard County, Florida house or condo, you don't have to be "average."
I do believe there is a "golden period" where a property will generate the most interest. You must be ready to dazzle them early. Homes are selling that priced within the realm of reality.
Sellers can't let their listing become stagnant, an orphan property, a comparison property used by others!
Sellers have to dazzle them early! To state it as concisely as possible let's just say "It is all about the packaging."
And if you have done it correctly you may just get an offer quickly which requires another word of caution..
In a buyer's market the first offer may be the best you are going to receive. Consider the offer seriously before a refusal without even offering a counteroffer.
