How to Calculate the Absorption Rate:

  • 13 homes have listed in the last 30 days. 3 have gone under contract
    13/3 = 4.3
    It should take 4.3 months to clear the existing inventory


What it all Means to You:

  • Prices are up by a median of 10% because so many older properties have been replaced with homes over $1M.  There have been 24 sales of homes over $1.4M this year, including six over $2M
  • Overall demand is down by 18% which means fewer homes have sold this year and the total sales volume is down
  • There are many excellent opportunities to buy but this zip code is increasingly expensive to live in
  • Properties that are priced under $1M that are well priced and in very good condition still sell quickly for close to their asking price
  • On average sellers are getting 97% of their list price so offers that are much lower than that are not as likely to get accepted on property that is in good condition
