ABSORPTION RATE STATISTICS FOR LANSDOWNE HOMES FOR SALE
So what is absorption rate? Absorption Rate is how many homes are sold in a given period of time. So if 120 homes sold in the last 12 months, then the absorption rate is 10 homes per month. So why is this important? It is only through absorption rate that one can define a market in terms of a Sellers Market, Buyers Market or a Balanced or Normal Market.
WHY IS ABSORPTION RATE IMPORTANT?
Because it determines how quickly homes move on and off the market....and you want to know that right? So you know how long it will take you to sell your home if priced properly, so you can make that move for your job, or buy that move-up home, or be able to predict with some level of certainty how long you have to keep your house clean and have people going through it when you have it for sale.
