The Absorption rate this week is 9.07 weeks. See the attached picture of the absorption rate over time.  The absorption rate is a number that describes how many weeks it will take to see off the current inventory at the current rate of sales.  We had 14 closings this week and we have 127 active listings.  So at the current rate of 14 closings per week, it would take 9.07weeks (127/14) to sell off the current inventory.  See the chart attached as a photo to see how absorption rate has fluctuated over time.

The absorption rate is often thought of as the factor that indicates if we are in a sellers' or buyers' market.

Generally if there is more than 4 months of inventory it's a buyers' market.  Less than 4 months it's a sellers' market.  Prices are down but so is the inventory.  

Another key factor is listing date to contract.  See the quarterly review and consult an agent.  Outlyers can skew these numbers.
