Whether the time on market is due to a smaller pool of buyers or an oversupply of property, you will have to work a bit harder in these areas to make a sale. Marketing your agency aggressively, making sure you list your property online and making sure your property photos and descriptions show the property in the best possible light, will help you stand out from the competition and get a quicker sale.
