This is where homes are selling the fastest in America right now

Homes have spent fewer and fewer days on the market over the last five years. In summer 2021—peak season for residential real estate activity—the typical home in the U.S. sold in just 36 days, according to data from the St. Louis Federal Reserve Bank. For comparison, the typical home took twice as long to sell in the summer of 2017.

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.

To see where that may be the case, Stacker compiled a list of metros where homes are selling the fastest using data from Redfin from June 2022. Stacker looked at metros with over 300 home sales in June and ranked them by the least days listed for sale for the month. Metros with the most home sales were ranked higher in the case of ties. 

Read on to see the 50 metros in the U.S. where homes are selling the fastest.
