The pace at which homes sell in the U.S. tends to ebb and flow over the calendar year, with homes selling the fastest in the summer months and slowest in the winter. But this spring selling season, things are more muted as high home prices and mortgage interest rates spook potential buyers. In March, the median number of days a home spent on the market was 43, more than three weeks longer compared to the year before.

Home Sale Speed Matters Locally

At a local level, a property that sits on the market for longer than the median length of time could signal to would-be-buyers that there is something undesirable about the listing. When homes sell faster it can also be a sign that any given market is less buyer-friendly.
