By the Numbers—Days on Market

Some interesting facts…

In Jackson county, there are currently

  • 281 homes for sale that have been on the market for over 1 year.
  • 139 homes for sale that have been on the market for over 1 1/2 years
  • 50 homes for sale that have been on the market for over 2 years
  • 25 homes for sale that have been on the market for over 2 1/2 years
  • 10 homes for sale that have been on the market for over 3 years

And the current record is one house in sale in Ashland that has been on the market for over 4 1/2 years.

What are these people thinking? At one point in time, you could be optomistic, and figure that the market would catch up to the price you were asking for your house.

But now? Maybe it is a ploy to make the kids keep their rooms clean. If the house is always for sale, then I suppose you always need to keep it in show condition.

I promise you that I will not list a house, and have it sit on the market for a year…and not strongly recommend we try something different.

I am not interested in having houses listed….I want houses sold.
