It’s definitely a seller's market, which usually means big profits for homeowners when the sale is complete. At the end of 2022, the average seller earned real profit on the sale of their property to the tune of $112,000, up 21% from 2021 and 78% from two years ago. 

And while that may sound like a large chunk of change, imagine averaging $2 million in profit from the sale of your residence. That’s what the average profit is on celebrity homes, with many celebrities fairing much better, according to real estate firm Agent Advice.
