Because we are in recession I would say up to six months. But beware we are in the middle of one of the worst economic recessions of our time. If a realitor is unable to see your property that is not because they are not trying it could be that buyers are harder to come by because of the credit crunch. I got lumbered with property I needed to sell. Eventually reducing the property just slightly in price shifted it. It's a very tough market at the moment made hard by the credit crunch. Many people are choosing to rent houses off instead of losing out in equity. With sale of the property put off until we are out of the credit crunch.
