The absorption rate is an important indicator of the health of the market and whether it favors buyers or sellers. Less than a 6 months supply of homes means a seller’s market with sellers having the advantage. That is usually characterized by low inventory or listings for sale.
More than 6 months means it’s taking longer to sell homes and that sort of market typically tilts in favor of buyers.
Seven months is on the cusp and is for all practical purposes a balanced market with neither buyer or seller having an advantage. That could change quickly for a variety of reasons.
One big factor in home sales is current interest rates. Although interst rates for home mortgages fluctuate daily; right now the average rates are 4% fixed.
