Luxury Homes Priced to Sell at $30 million

chart of how long a house stays on the marketA recent story in the Wall Street Journal has some very interesting news about sales of luxury homes. Data from says luxury homes are selling at a faster rate than they were selling last year at this time. But that’s not the entire story.
Homes listed at more than $30 million are actually spending less time on the market. Right now, across all home prices nationwide, it takes about 82 days for a listing to be sold. Here’s the really interesting part: homes priced just under $30 million are taking about 180 days to sell while homes listed at $30 million and above stay on the market for only 139 days. In some areas like Colorado and Connecticut, luxury homes are selling in less than a month.
Why is this happening? Experts say the answer could be based on the fact that homes priced at $30 million and above are usually marketed quietly before hitting the MLS to a group of highly engaged homebuyers. Not only are these luxury homes selling quickly today, but also the sale prices per square foot are off the charts.
