‘Time on market’ (TOM) is simply the average number of days between when a property is first listed for sale and the contract date. The rate of vendor discounting is the average percentage difference between the original listing price and the final selling price. The statistics are calculated across results received by RP Data over the past week and include properties transacted over the past four weeks. The data is based on private treaty sales only and records without a valid sale price have been excluded from the vendor discount analysis. The analysis also excludes results where there are less than 10 observations.
