Home sales in North Texas may be down, but a new comparison of major U.S. housing markets shows that the area still has one of the lowest average sales times in the country.

The report from California-based Altos Research Co. and Real IQ estimates that it takes about 80 days to sell a house in Dallas, compared with an average of 110 days for the cities surveyed.

Only Denver, at 77 days, has a quicker average sales time than Dallas.

Of the markets included in the survey, Miami had the longest average sales time at 143 days.
