How Long Does It Take to Sell a St. Charles Home?
CDOM stands for Cumulative Days on Market. This statistic tracks how long it takes for a home to get a contract that ultimately closes. The cumulative part means that this number does not reset just because a seller changes agents unless the home comes off the market for at least 60 days.
While median sale price slightly dropped from 2011 to 2012, the time it took to sell a home in 2012 dropped dramatically…indicating that a shift was starting in the St. Charles market. Homes started selling faster but there was a lag in prices doing up until the following year. Since 2012, the time it took to sell a home in St. Charles has decreased each year.So far this year, 80% of the homes that sold in St. Charles got an accepted contract in just 60 days.
Successful Sales vs Failed Attempts to Sell:
In 2011, there were more successful homes sales in St. Charles than there were failed attempts to sell, but the gap wasn’t that big.
Since 2012, the trend widened the gap with substantially more homes selling each year than failing to sell. In the least few years, only a small percentage of agent listed homes in St. Charles fail to sell. Last year, 21% of the homes that were listed in St. Charles came off the market without selling. As of today, the number of failed attempts to sell has has dropped to 13% of listed homes.
