The absorption trend, which shows the number of months it would take to sell the entire inventory at the same pace, came in at 4.66 for the last three months, still in a SELLER'S MARKET. Time to stop holding off getting your house on the market! Buyers are waiting for new inventory!

 

Keep in mind that this rate is for ALL houses. If you are selling your home, your agent should calculate the absorption rate trend for your price point to get a more accurate analysis. Some price points favor sellers; others favor buyers.
