About 11,000 Houses Will Sell Today

Some homeowners have been waiting to put their houses on the market because they don’t think people are buying homes right now. If that’s you, know that even though the housing market has slowed compared to the frenzy of a couple of years ago, it isn’t at a standstill. Contrary to your belief, buyers are still active, and plenty of homes are selling right now.

The National Association of Realtors (NAR) predicts that over 4 million homes will be sold this year based on the current pace of sales. To understand how this affects you, let’s do some basic calculations.

  • 4.16 million homes divided by 365 days in a year = 11,397 houses sell each day
  • 11,397 divided by 24 hours in a day = 475 houses sell per hour
  • 475 divided by 60 minutes in an hour = about eight houses sell each minute

So, on average, about 11,000 homes sell each day in this country.
