Two numbers that deserve some explanation are the Ratio of Homes Entering the Market vs. Leaving the Market and the Absorption Rate. The Ratio is an indication of where the market is headed in general. A ratio below 1 indicates that the inventory is being pulled down whereas a ratio above 1 would indicate that we are adding to the inventory. The Absorption rate indicates how quickly the inventory is being absorbed or sold. For a given month the absorption rate shows how long in terms of months it would take to sell off the entire inventory if nothing else came on the market and if sales stayed stagnant at this month's level. The ratio will tell you if you're headed toward a buyer or seller's market while the absorption rate tells you where you are now. For instance, For June in Webb City the ratio is .96 which tells me that we are adding inventory at a rate just less than that of equilibrium. On the other hand, with an absorption rate of 9.8 in June I know that Webb City, at least in June entered a buyer's market during the month. Since the previous 2 months show a trend towards a buyers market I can look to the ratio for guidance as to where the market may be headed more long term. In this case since we are not adding inventory at a rate that far exceeds our ability to consume it I would expect that even though we are currently experiencing a buyers market in Webb City it should not be something that last a long time as inventory is pulling down and will reach a point of shortage if this trend continues. These are both more long term numbers and will become more meaningful as we build the history for Webb city's market.

When watching the absorption rate a between 5 and 6 months indicates a normal market. A number at or below 4 months indicates a sellers market and a number at or above 7 months would indicate a buyers market.
