The chart of the day is: Scottsdale Average Days on the Market.
The number of days you can expect your home to sit on the market after listing has been steadily dropping since it peaked in the first quarter of 2010. Inventory is falling and days on the market is basically an indication of the inventory pool against the number of active buyers.

While the average days on the market is still up near 200 days there is no reason why a fairly priced, well marketed home should be on the market for more than 3 months without going under contract.
