Seller Facts


Here are some fun facts about recent home sellers. This research comes from the National Association of Realtors survey of home buyers and sellers:

  • 10 years = the average time recent home sellers have lived in their home. This number has remained essentially unchanged for the last ten years. From 1987 to 2007 the average was 6 years.
  • 89% = the percentage of home sellers who use a Realtor to help sell their home. This has been trending higher over the last 20 years. In 2001, 79% of home sellers used a Realtor. As the transaction gets more and more complex, more sellers seek the help of a Realtor.
  • 75% = the percentage of home sellers who found their Realtor through a personal relationship as opposed to seeking out an agent they didn’t know.
  • 77% = the percentage of home sellers who only interviewed one Realtor for the job of selling their home.
