It’s a Sellers’ Market in Woburn, MA
You may have heard the terms “Sellers’ Market” or “Buyers’ Market”. We look at how long it will take to sell the current inventory of homes if no new listings come on the market and market conditions do not change. This is also called “Absorption Rate“.
How Absorption rate calculated.
Determine the number of homes sold in a defined area over a specific period of time, say 12 months.
Divide the number of homes sold by the number of months of the period (you will get the number of homes sold per month)
Divide the rate into the number of current listings
265 homes sold in 2012
265/12 = 22.08
48/22.08 = 2.17
Conclusion- it will take 2.17 months to sell the 48 listings currently on the market inWoburn, MA. An Absorption Rate of approximately 6 months is considered to be a balanced market. Anything below 5 month is considered to be a seller’s market..
