Like this.

The graphic is essential and allows the owner to 'see' the market their house must participate as well as an opportunity to explore what each market type means to the owner.

Green means more money.

Read means NOT more money.

It is basic economics. If there is more supply than demand, prices go down. If there is more demand than supply, prices go up. Our market is a seller's market with less than 3 months supply - and prices have been escalating roughly 10% per year for the last 5 years. During the recession, we had a buyer's market with much more inventory than demand and prices fell drastically.

Usually, there are fewer months of inventory in a seller's market, and prices tend to be on the increase.  More months on the market, and it's the reverse. But this is only a sort of rule of thumb.

Supply and demand is fairly simple to explain.  The more buyers have to choose from, the more aggressive sellers are going to be with their price to get those buyers.  A lot of inventory means a lack of buyers, so prices go down.  

Conversely, a lack of inventory means prices go up because there isn't as much for buyers to choose from.

I believe you are referring to absorption rate.  It may or may not mean more appreciation or depreciation.

This is commonly referred to as absorption rate if I understand your question, however supply and demand dictates price even over time

In short when you have a shortage of homes for sale, and lots of buyers prices rise. When you have more homes than buyers, prices decline

Depreciation is an accounting and tax concept and is not applied to current assets such as inventory.
