It took longer to sell a home in December 2018 than in September 2018, but it’s still a seller’s market.1 The average time to sell jumped to 108 days in December from 89 days in September. This increase may be due to seasonality.

The strongest seller’s markets were Washington, D.C, (average of 78 days to sell), Nevada (80 days) and Indiana (84 days). A strong seller’s market is one where a home sells in four to five months. A home in a seller’s market sells in six to eight months.

The weakest markets were located in the Northeast and the South. Vermont (163 days), Tennessee (137 days) and South Carolina (130 days) were at the bottom. If interest rates increase, some states could possibly turn into buyer’s markets.
