ABSORPTION RATE STATISTICS FOR LOUDOUN COUNTY LUXURY HOMES FOR SALE SEPTEMBER 2013
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.
LOUDOUN COUNTY LUXURY HOME REAL ESTATE STATISTICS - ABSORPTION RATES
Okay so the absorption for Townhomes is: 5 sold in the last 12 months or .4 per month, this can be due to constrained supply in that, there are not many $1 mil. plus townhomes. The absorption rate for Single family detached homes is: 45 sold in last 12 months or 3.8 per month.
PUTTING IT ALL TOGETHER!
So to make sense of all this you need to know the current inventory of homes so, as of September 16th here is the scoop!

A Sellers market is defined by 1-4 months of inventory
A Normal Market is defined by 5-6 months of inventory
