days on market iowa city: What Exactly is the Absorption Rate and How Does it Impact the Sale of My Home? - 04/30/11 08:02 AM
Denise, What exactly is the Absorption Rate and how does it impact the sale of my home? I was at a listing appointment last week and was asked this question. The term "days on market" is a term that we're all familiar with. This is the average time it takes for a home to sell. The Absorption Rate provides a mathematical formula to calculate how long it will take the current inventory of homes to be absorbed into the market. When we calculate the Absorption Rate the resulting number is the average number of days on market we're all so familiar … (2 comments)

days on market iowa city: Homes Sold & Average Price - Iowa City January 2011 Compared to January 2010 - 02/04/11 02:04 AM
13 homes sold in Iowa City in January 2011 compared to 17 in January 2010. 6 single family homes, 5 attached condos, 1 detached condo and 1 zero lot. The interesting thing about the numbers is that it seems condo sales are on the rise. That was the case for the number of condos sold in December and now in January. At least when it comes to condos it looks like the market may be turning around. That's great news as we head towards the spring market. (Typically the strongest selling time of the year for condos).Generally speaking the prices reflect … (0 comments)

Iowa City Real Estate Market Report July 2010 compared to June 2009
 

 
68 homes sold in Iowa City in July 2010 compared to 174 homes sold in July 2009. Quite the dip as you can see. It won't come as a surprise to you to learn that the expiration of the first time homebuyer tax credit had a significant impact on our market. The surprise would have been if that had not happened! Hopefully it levels out a bit now though and the numbers improve in August.
As far as the days on market are concerned. I … (0 comments)

Homes sold in Iowa City week ending July 24, 201013 homes sold in Iowa City last week. This number is lower than last year when 25 homes sold in the same time frame. According to MLS Data days on market also increased from 85 to 126.
It looks like July will be a soft month for sales. Not really surprising considering the expiration of the tax credit on June 30. It was clear that the housing market would need time to correct after that. A couple more days until the end of the month and we will know more about that … (0 comments)
