Whats the longest you've ever seen it take to sell a house?

We moved and now I regret it. Our marriage is struggling now. I still have my old house. I could move back.

  • My mother is getting remarried and she and her intended put both their houses on the market figuring that they would sell whichever sold first, and then live in the house that didn't sell (taking it off the market obviously). It can take a long time, particularly if you are not flexible with the price or terms, which they are not flexible. It has been 2 years I think and neither house has sold.

  • I am a Realtor here in So Cal. If the property is not priced right or it is a pile of s... It can stay on the market forever.

  • Donna Paul had a great answer.

    "The timing of a home on the market all depends on the price that has been placed on the property. It would take 2 days to 12 months to sell a home. It all depends on 1. Location 2. Price 3. Marketing 4. Agent."
