Don't put too much weight in Days on Market. Different type properties have different average DOM. Different priced properties have different average DOM. Townhouses, detached, land, farms will all be different. DOM just means you should do some more research and try to figure out the reason it's staying on market longer than similar properties. I wouldn't assume you have any bargaining power unless you've seen the property, and confirmed the reasons it has above average DOM.

Praveen we have so many market segments that we follow every month and some DOM means something and others.......not so much.  It really depends on the market.

If the home is new construction, the DOM really don't mean anything except the house is being built and a buyer cannot close until the home is completed.

Probably one of the most meaning less stats if it is an overall. However, I try to build in an automatic price reduction within two weeks unless the price is below market value.

The impact of high DOM depends on the individual property, the market conditions, etc. No hard and fast rule that would apply to all.

Most excellent question thank you.....

At about the two week mark, unless there is a reason for not getting offers, interest etc. I believe the buyer may start to have more leverage.

Depends on the market. If the properties on average are sold in 30 days, the one that is 90 days would already have  a bad stigma, unless it is a unique house.

In this market i do not have homes stay around long enough to go down. In a normal or average market, adjusting the price for time on market can bring about a sale. Location and condition both affect that

A high DOM is generally a negative.  However, I've seen sellers hold out for that "one" buyer that loves the property and thinks it's worth the asking price.

You have gotten a lot of great answers here;  I'll add it also depends very much on market dynamics and what is typical for the specific market.  Right now, we have neighborhoods where the only reason houses stay on the market longer than 1 day is because it takes that long to go through the multiple offers and get one ratified.

I agree, it depends on the property, the market and motivation of seller.  Some properties take longer to sell depending on the uniqueness of the property or location and what type of clients will purchase the property

It would depend on the Market at that time but also the needs of the Seller. In general the longer a property is on the market the worse it is for the seller.. the assumptions always begin... What's wrong with it? Why didn't it sell, It must be overpriced etc etc. 

Market well, price appropriately make sure the home has Price, Showability, Terms and Great Marketing it needs ALL 4 Praveen Mudwani

You could have a seller who says, thinks he is the most negotiable owner out there. But if his price for the last four years has not moved a dollar lower, he is not. Waiting for one brave soul to make an offer keeps away lots of buyers who woould jump at the chance when the price is dropped, chopped and shows up in the upper end of a lower bracket. Over priced listings are the fault of agents who take them. Buyers who don't waste their time on them have the advantage in the real estate maret.

Depends on the seller. For some sellers, being on the market even a week is too long and they'll take any offers. For others, they're perfectly content to sit it out and wait for the holy grail of offers to come in.

Praveen - I hate to say it, but it really does depend on the market. If most homes are selling within 30 days, and you find one that has been on the market 60+, I would say that the buyer may have more leverage. However, it is also specific to the seller. Perhaps this seller is only listing their home and willing to sell if they get top dollar, and don't really care how long the home sits on the market.

Extended DOM doesn't mean the buyer will get a deal.  I found an older ranch home on land near my son's neighborhood. It's been listed forever and needs works. Not the typical home in demand for our market.  Well, as soon as we go check it out.. The agent got a contract! UGG!!
