Absorption rate summary 

What is absorption rate? It's an estimate of how long (in months) the current inventory of homes will turn over. A balanced market typically holds inventory for 5-7 months. So less than 5-7 would indicate a seller’s market (more demand leading to higher prices and quicker sales) and more than 5-7 would indicate a buyers market (less demand leading to lower prices and slower sales). 

The price range of $350,000- $400,000 resulted in 8 months absorption. There are currently 19 listed homes in this range with YTD sales only at 24 total. Homes in the $500,000+ range returned a 21.7 month absorption. All other price ranges returned a number less than 5 months, indicating an overall seller’s market in Cedar Falls.
