Just like any other product that is bought and sold, real estate is affected by supply and demand. By determining the absorption rate we can tell what you should realistically expect to sell your home for. Let’s look at the below example, it is a sample of homes priced between $150,000 to $175,000.
For Dallas Georgia Homes, here is the April 2011 Market Absorption for homes ranging from $150K-175K.
Current number of homes on the market _____105 _________
Number of homes that failed to sell in the past 12 months _____358_________
Number of homes that Sold in past 12 months _____141_________
Total number of homes sold per month _____11.75_______
Total Months worth of Inventory _____8.6_ _______
Current number of homes on the market ______105 ________
Number of new inventory for this period ______26.75_______
Total Inventory ______131.25______
Number of Homes that will sell ______35.25 ______ ___26.9%____
Number of Homes that will not sell ______96_________ ___73.1%____
Average Sold Price during the last 12 months _$155,087_
Statistically homes that sell in 90days or less sell at or slightly below list price. Homes in the $150K-175K price range that are on the market longer than 90 days have a 73.1% chance of not selling at all! This is what you want to avoid. If you want to sell your home quickly with as little hassle as possible, we believe your list price should begin at a minimum of 10% below the market. In this example that would be roughly $139,500.
