Figuring Absorption Rate--North Port, Florida

 

We often get asked, "which months are your busiest". So I decided to research it and it looks like the most sales take place March-June. I also included a formula for figuring the absorption rate. Looking at the data it doesn't look like the "sky is falling" in North Port. There were 30 more listings sold in 2005 than there were in 2006. Not exactly a gloom and doom market in my opinion. Hope this helps to bring more optimism to buyers and sellers.

# of listings in North Port= 1,630 active listings

# sold last month from Dec1 -Dec 31= 55 listings sold

#sold (55) X 12 (months) = 660

divide 660 by 52 weeks= 13 units per week

If 13 units sell each week divide that number into the number of active listings 13 divided by 1630 = 130 weeks is the absorption rate or 2.5 years!

The Definition of Absorption Rate:

Number of weeks it takes to sell the current inventory at the present rate of sales.

Hey Maureen,

Thanks for the welcome back :) Man, it's been a while since I've been to the site. Wow! It looks like a spaceship with all of the new dials and controls. These guy sure are doing a super job! Did I read that right?? Over 13,000 members. Holy Cow! I think I was somewhere in the first hundred.

I think I remember a contest to guess the day when AR it 1,000. Unreal! Look at all the wonderful blogs.

I'm going to see if I can be better about blogging and I've spent the whole day working on the Localism.com thing.

Thanks again for the warm welcome back!!

I just wanted to say thanks.  An agent in the office was trying to figure out an absorption rate, but wasn't really sure how.  I typed into Google "figuring absorption rate" and the first link on there was to your blog on localism.com.  Pretty cool, huh!

Great Brett, I'm glad it helped! I does get a little confusing when trying to put the numbers together correctly. I guess we rock :)
