The number of homes for sale in and around Dothan fell back last month from the all-time high in May. As of July 1, there were 954 single family homes on the market. However, if you read yesterday’s real estate market update, you know that we are back up over 970 this week. Inventory We seem to be stuck, at least for the time being, at between 950 and 975 homes on the market, which again means we are in a strong buyers market. It is hard to imagine much fluctuation in these numbers in the near future. Absorption rate The absorption rate for July is down again to 8.59 months of inventory. What this means is that it would take about eight and a half months to sell every home currently for sale in Dothan at the current rate of sales, if no new listings came on the market. The downward trend is continuing, and that is a good sign that the Dothan real estate market is healthy. Inventory and absorption rates can vary between different areas around Dothan.
