Many U.S. cities becoming sellers’ real estate markets, according to ZipRealty

Posted on 15 February 2013

The gap between the listing price and closing price of an average home in the United States continues to narrow, with a growing number of sellers able to achieve more than 98% of their home’s listing price. In addition, the median days a home spent on the market dropped to 44 nationwide in 2012, a 23% decline from 2011′s 57 days, says a study of ZipRealty.
“A limited inventory of homes on the market, combined with the extremely low cost of mortgage financing, has resulted in homes selling above asking price in many western markets, boosting the average listing to closing price ratio,” explains Lanny Baker, Chief Executive Officer and President of ZipRealty. “The median amount of time that homes are listed on the market before they sell has shortened by more than two weeks since last year, and in some areas we are seeing one-in-five newly listed homes sell in less than seven days. Multiple-bid situations are also increasingly common in the markets we reviewed.” (Press Release)
