HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO SELL?
- To date in 2018 properties have taken an average of two months to sell, according to data produced by Rightmove.
- How long a property takes to sell is dependent on a whole range of factors – price, location, condition and time of year to name but a few, but despite challenging market conditions in many areas, nationally this figure is just one day longer than last year and is 10 days shorter than four years ago.
- There are of course regional differences, at present properties are selling quickest across the Midlands – 49 days in the West Midlands and 54 in the East Midlands, while properties across London and the North East are taking longer to sell.
