How long are homes staying on the market?

How long a home stays on the market depends on many factors. But, if we assume the house is well prepared for showings and is priced right, then the price range and the location of the home will be strong determinants. Homes in Buncombe County priced under $800,000 are going under contract in two to three weeks. Properties found in counties like Madison, Haywood, and Polk remain on the market for six to eight months. And it’s not uncommon for luxury homes to be on the market for nine months or more. Check out our Quarterly Market Report for more detail on nine counties throughout Western North Carolina.

We loved working with Rich. He helped us narrow our search based on our needs. He was very knowledgeable of the area and could give good feedback on resources. Rich dedicated his time to us when we came to town for our house search and was very patient as we searched for our new home. We found the perfect place and Rich worked with all of the moving parts of the transaction to make it happen. We love Rich!!

Rich was very helpful guiding us through the home buying experience. He anticipated our questions and was ready with explanations for things we were not familiar with. He was available when needed, returning phone calls in a timely manner. Nothing was too much trouble for Rich. Again, we were very fortunate to have him helping us every step of the way.

A true recommendation of an agent is would you do business with that agent again. We bought our home through Rich, and now called Rich when we decided to sell it. He's knowledgeable about the area and market conditions. He's also a very nice person.

Rich Cooke was very patient and professional in getting our sale done. He did an excellent job! Rich lives in the same neighborhood and has a great working knowledge of all the properties in Laurel Park. He was very helpful when a potential buyer was looking. He knew the property very well. I would certainly use Rich again.

Rich is organized and always does what he says he will do. You do not have to keep after him. Rich keeps his word which is most important to me. I know Rich from another purchase and after dealing with him again can say in all honesty that there are realtors and then there is Rich Cooke. I would highly recommend that anyone looking to buy or sell a home contact Rich Cooke. We were not sorry and I know they will not be either. Sincerely, Wayne M. Arcuri

Rich Cook was excellent in assisting me with many offers and troublesome prospective buyers with 3 closings falling through within 7-10 days of closing. Numerous issues needed to be resolved and Rich helped with everything and provided me w/excellent advice and put me in touch with the right people to get things resolved in a timely matter when I could do so. He put up with more than his fair share of troubles and issues from buyers as well as the final buyer's attorney who kept asking for more and more to be done. Rich went out of his way to meet me at different locations in the middle of my work day when papers needed to be signed. I couldn't have asked for a better realtor than Rich and I would highly recommend him.

Rich, is genuine, he truly cares about his clients and is willing to go the extra mile for them. He helped us buy and sell our first home, which made the process a lot less stressful! We would and have recommended Rich to others seeking an experienced and extremely patient realtor. My husband and I consider him a friend. -Shannon & Stuart Twiddy

We made several trips to Hendersonville to look at condos. Rich was accommodating and never made us feel rushed even though our price point was rather low. We had to do everything long distance and Rich was easily accessible and always quickly responsive to texts and emails. He went well beyond what is expected of an agent. We highly recommend Rich Cooke to anyone looking for real estate in the Hendersonville market.

Rich Cooke did an excellent job marketing and selling our mother's condo. He was very realistic about setting the asking price and his suggestions proved to help us sell this property. This sale was somewhat difficult for us emotionally and Rich was always very kind in his communications with us. Rich was always aware of the market and always passed his information and knowledge to us. As out-of-town owners we were always sure that Rich was doing everything he could to sell our property. His attitude and reassurance assisted us greatly. Rich Cooke is a superb agent and we would recommend him to anyone interested in buying or selling in the area. He always goes the extra mile for his clients. Even though we had some obstacles to overcome with our condo e.g. significant repairs, Rich remained realistic and optimistic throughout the process. We are very appreciative of all the work Rich Cooke put into marketing and selling our condo and would definitely use his services again!

We met Rich two years ago when he was an agent with Keller Williams. In the past two plus years he has answered hundreds of inquiries as well as patiently shown us house after house until "the one" popped up. He is very knowledgeable, very thorough, infinitely patient and unfailingly pleasant and very polite. On the occasions when my grandchildren were with me as we looked at houses Rich won them over and is now referred to as "Uncle Rich". I feel that Rich has become a friend and we look forward to continuing our association with him now that we are going to be "neighbors". In my opinion, Rich performed above and beyond the call of duty in every area of interaction with him. I feel that not only did he make the real estate transaction as easy as it could possibly be, he will make the actual process of our relocation equally smooth. I give him the highest rating possible - both as an agent and a human. He is a gem.

Rich was wonderful to work with and we knew he always had our best interests in mind. He helped us deal with any problems that arose and had good suggestions as to how to solve them. Even though he was dealing with the folks who were buying the house as well as us, he was always fair and managed to come up with a plan after the inspection that satisfied us and the buyers. But of course the most important thing is that he sold the house in three weeks, and we are grateful for that! Rich was top-notch in everything he did and we will recommend him to others. We had not sold a house for 45 years and he walked us through the process in a caring, patient, knowledgeable way. We knew we could count on him to be truthful and helpful, so we were comfortable following his advice.

When my husband and I first met with Rich, we left our meeting with the feeling that he was genuinely concerned with our needs and requirements. My husband is disabled, so we were looking for handicap accessible homes and other criteria for his disability.

Rich Cooke has both sold a property for us and helped my husband and I buy two additional properties in the last year. Rich is truly 'one-stop' shopping...he has professional resources for inspections and any other work that needs to be completed and he's always available! I can send him an email and within a few minutes (if not sooner), he's gotten back to me with the answer to my question. He's on stop of the timeline and reminds you when you need to take the next step (and what the next step is). You and Rich are not stumbling over each other duplicating tasks as you decide with him, up front, who's responsible for what action. Rich is extremely knowledgeable about the area and really listens to your requirements. I began my search for our latest property on April 15 and we closed on the new property May 30. I would, without hesitation, recommend Rich to anyone buying or selling property in Henderson County. You won't be disappointed!

Rich - You made selling my mothers home effortless. I didn't know how I was going to be able to be in two places at one time, living and working in Portland Maine while moms house was located in Hendersonville. Rich kept me posted at every turn. From having the house cleaned and readied for showings to the final signature on the sale all under one month period of time. I didn't have to leave Maine, Rich took care of everything. He is a very special agent, one who gets the job done.
