One of the first things a buyer will ask me about a Spring Texas house is “How many days has it been on the market?”
Days on Market (DOM) is a measurement of time. It represents the number of days a house has been listed as Active on the Spring Texas real estate market.
If the house has been on the market for a short time, buyers believe the sellers will not be willing to take much less than the list price.
But if the house has been on the market for a long time, buyers believe the sellers must be ready to sell and will take significantly less than the list price. Buyers also believe that if the house has been on the market for a long time then there surely must be something wrong with the house. Both of these assumptions can be WRONG!
There are many reasons that a house can linger on the market for a long time including:
Just because a house has languished on the Spring Texas real estate market for a long time doesn’t mean it’s a bad house. It just means it had a problem that it had to overcome before it would sell.
BTW: Current days on market for Spring Texas houses (MLS area 13) is 76 days.

It was my first time going through the new home building process so it helped make the meeting way less stressful. Jill has been there for me every step of the process even after the closing! I truly have never met a more passionate, hard working individual! I would HIGHLY recommend! read less
