Homeowners looking to sell and move to a new place are in a great position; according to the National Association of REALTORS®’2015 Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers, sellers are seeing the sales price of their home creep up closer to list price—the median sales price as a percent of the listing price is 98 percent. Just a few years ago, in 2011, owners were selling their home for 95 percent of the list price. The amount of time a property sits on the market also matters in the sales price compared to the listing price. For homes that lasted less than a week on the market, half were sold for full listing price, while another 19 percent were sold for more than that price. The  sale-to-list price ratio falls as time goes on (for example, homes that are on the market for 5-8 weeks are only sold for 100 percent of the listing price 17 percent of the time and more than listing price only 3 percent of the time).
