With our market as fast paced as it is right now, don't let the "Days on the Market" fool you, by definition, Days on the Market (DOM) begin when the home is LISTED for sale, and ends when the Home Closes (IE, ownership has legally transferred from Seller to Buyer), that being said, the average Days on the Market for Gilbert Homes for Sale is 99 days. That is rending down, which means houses in Gilbert are not only selling quicker, they are closing quicker! A Typical Financed Escrow takes up to 45 days, but with Short Sale Listings on the Rise (If you're upside down, you should really call me, like right now, seriously, time is running out!) those additional 45-50 DOM, to successfully negotiate the terms and conditions to allow the Short Sale to close.

This is the truly shocking figure, the total inventory of listed properties, is 717, of those 717 Homes for Sale in Gilbert, 330 are without contracts, so in a city with a population of roughly 225,000 people (based on 2012 Census Results), with a city growth of 86% since 2000, which means more and more people are moving too, and purchasing homes in Gilbert AZ, the time is NOW to get moving into your first home, 2nd home, investment property or even to Short Sale your home and avoid the "Foreclosure" line on your Credit!
