The absorption trend, which shows the number of months it would take to sell the entire inventory at the same pace, came in at 8.75 for the last three months, which statistically is a buyer's market. A few slow sales months pushed this number up.  Higher sales will drive it down, as can be seen by the 5.00 rate above for April.

  

  

Note 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.

 

 WOW!  Nice rebound in sales from the previous months, going up 133% from March.
