Grand Junction Homes are Selling Quickly, Here is Why!


If you are looking to buy a home in the Grand Junction area, you have noticed that new listings disappear quickly and there are many buyers looking at the same homes you are.  Grand Junction is currently a Seller's market and we have a shortage of available homes.  Here is the quick explanation about  Grand Junction Homes Market "Absorption Rate" and how it affects home buyers and sellers.


What is the 'Absorption Rate'

The absorption rate is the rate at which available homes are sold in a specific real estate market during a given time period. It is calculated by dividing the total number of available homes by the average number of sales per month. The figure shows how many months it will take to exhaust the supply of homes on the market.  Currently the Grand Junction Homes  Market Absorption rate is averaging 2-4 months.

Absorption Rate Key

  • 1-4 months – Sellers Market. More buyers than sellers, with properties often selling quickly for more than asking price.


  • 5-6 months – Normal Market. Similar number of both buyers and sellers. Properties sell for, or close to asking price.


  • 7+ months –  Buyers Market. More sellers than buyers, with homes taking longer to sell, and often selling for much less than asking price, if at all.
