The pace at which homes sell in the U.S. tends to ebb and flow over the calendar year, with homes selling fastest in the summer and slowest in the winter. However, these swings were more muted in 2023 as high home prices and mortgage interest rates spooked potential buyers.

The median number of days a home spent on the market in November was 36, one day less than in November 2022. When homes sell faster, it may signal that a given market is less buyer-friendly and that buyers must make decisions quickly.

Stacker compiled a list of American metro areas where homes are selling the fastest, using data from Redfin. Metro areas include the main city as well as the surrounding towns and suburbs. Only those areas with more than 300 home sales were included and were ranked by the median number of days homes spent on the market in November. In the case of ties, metros with the most home sales were ranked higher.
