Absorption Rate

Understanding the balance between Sun Mosaic in Cabezonthe number of home buyers and the number of homes on the market is crucial to understanding the pulse of the real estate market in a neighborhood. A surplus of home buyers looking to purchase with a a shortage of homes increases demand and makes for a very competitive market. That’s called a seller’s market. Too few buyers and too many homes available makes for a buyer’s market.

So what’s the current balance between buyers and home inventory right now? Over the last month, there have been 21 closed sales, and currently there are 83 homes for sale. At that rate, it would take less than four months to sell the existing inventory (assuming no new homes were placed on the market). Less than four months of inventory makes it a seller’s market in Cabezon (6 months is a balanced market).

Market conditions can change from month to month. If interest rates increase dramatically and buyers drop out of the market, home inventory can build fast. The same thing is true if home owners decide it’s a good time to sell and they flood the market with home listings.
