Ask Gabe

 
Q: What is the Absorption Rate for my property?

 

 

-Christina Ross Youngstown

A: Knowing your area’s Absorption Rate, helps track trends. It is the number of months it takes to sell the current real estate inventory at the present rate of sales.

 

Understanding the market and where it is headed is part of our job as real estate professionals. Absorption rates are NOT an exact science; it is based on the premise one will be looking for a TREND. To track effectively the numbers must be tracked every month.

For example, if 100 homes are sold every month and there are 1200 homes for sale, it will take 12 months to sell all the homes currently for sale. If there are 2400 homes for sale, the absorption rate will be 24 months or 2 years for all the homes to sell. This does not take into count the number of houses which will eventually come on the market along with those already for sale. If you would like to sell in 12 months you need to take the absorption rate into account. In the above scenario with 2400 homes for sale, we know only 1/2 of them will sell in the next 12 months. If you need to sell within the next 12 months you need to price the property in the lower 50% of the price range for similar properties in order for it to sell in the next 12 months. To sell in the next 6 months it would have to be priced in the lower 25% of the competition. If you would like to know what the absorption rate is for your neighborhood call Happy Herald Realty at 954-562-0110 for properties located in Broward or Palm Beach County.
