If the recent past can be expected to be a reliable indicator of the immediate future, sellers can expect they will have a 75% chance of settling their contracts with buyers on time. According to the latest statistics of 2018, in nearly the same percentage of cases (74%), sellers could have expected their contracts with buyers would have contingencies. The most common of these contingencies involved home inspections (54%), getting financing (45%) and obtaining an acceptable appraisal (42%). On average in 2018, sellers saw their properties remain on the market for 46 days, nationwide. In addition, nearly ¼ (22%) of sellers nationwide offered incentives such as paying for closing costs (10%), providing a warranty (9%) & remodeling (3%).
