What’s Selling – and What’s Not – in West Bridgewater MA in January 2012
On average, homes for sale in West Bridgewater MA in January 2012 are on the market for 89 days before they are sold. However, homes in some price ranges are taking a longer time to sell as compared to homes in other price ranges.
The absorption rate is the ability of the real estate market to absorb or sell all of the houses for sale in a given amount of time. That means it’s the rate at which available homes are sold in a specific real estate market during a given time period. In other words, the figure shows how many months it will take to exhaust the supply of homes on the market if no other homes were listed for sale.
The higher the absorption rate (or the less the number of days homes are on market), the higher the probability that the supply of available homes will shrink rapidly. When the absorption rate is high, a homeowner can sell his or her home for more money in a shorter period of time. When the absorption rate is low, a home buyer will have a larger inventory of homes to choose from, and may be able to buy a home for less money.
·1 to 4 months supply of homes – has a high absorption rate. This is a Sellers’ Market.
·5 to 6 months supply of homes – has a normal absorption rate. This is a Normal Market.
·7 or more months supply of homes – has a low absorption rate. This is a Buyers’ Market.
Below is a chart of the number of days single family homes are on the market in West Bridgewater MA until sold:
As the graph shows, the following are the number of days the average home for sale in a given price range is on the market before sold:
$100k - $150k:97 days on market (Seller’s Market)
$150k - $200k:151 days on market (Normal Market)
$200k - $250k:68 days on market (Seller’s Market)
$250k - $300k:40 days on market (Seller’s Market)
$300k - $400k:104 days on market (Normal Market)
$400k - $500k:75 days on market (Seller’s Market)
So what does all this mean?
A snapshot of the number of days homes are on the market in a given price range before sold (or the absorption rate) gives both home buyers and home sellers a better idea on how to negotiate thepurchase or sale of a home in West Bridgewater MA.
If you’re looking to buy a home in the $100k - $150k price range, the $200k - $300k price range, or above $400k, you may find that sellers aren’t negotiating as it’s taking less than 3 months on average to sell a home in these price ranges.
However, if you’re looking in the $150k - $200k price range or the $300k - $400k price range, you’ll find that it’s a normal market for homes in these price ranges. Lowball offers won't cut it in a market like this, but sellers aren't in control of the market either. Both buyers and sellers should be reasonable when negotiating the purchase and sale of a home in these price ranges.
