This graph shows the average days on market for each property type each month. Condos consistently lead the pack in terms of taking the longest to sell followed by patio homes. Single family homes have been pretty good most of the year, keeping under 80 days, but June say a good sized jump up to 96.4 days, but June was also the same month that single family homes saw the biggest year to date number of sales, and was also he second highest month so far this year for average price-per-square-foot, so maybe the extra half month on average it took to sell the home was worth the wait.

  • Townhouse: 71.30 days
