Even though the length of time it takes to sell a home drags on interminably for many homeowners, there are some areas where the endeavor isn't quite as much of a challenge.

Realtor.com recently shed light on these markets by compiling a list of 11 metro areas with the lowest median age inventory at the site, a measurement of how long a property from a given metro typically spends on the site. Denver (pictured above), at 32 days, finished well ahead of its competitors, while cities hit especially hard by foreclosures, like Naples, Fla., brought up the rear.
