*Sales to Listing Ratio is calculated by dividing the number of sales by the number of listings and it lets us see what percentage of listings on the market are selling. Generally a sales-to-listing ratio of over 55% suggests that it is a Seller’s Market and below 45% is thought of as a Buyer’s Market. A balanced real estate market is between 45% and 55%. The Home Hunt: 1263 Mosley Street, Wasaga Beach, ON L9Z 1A5 | 705-429-4500 x226 “A Moving Experience”

Absorption Rate = (Last month =

The Absorption Rate is the rate at which available homes are sold in a specific real estate market during a given time period. It is calculated by dividing the total number of available homes by the average number of sales per month. The figure shows how many months it will take to exhaust the supply of homes on the market. Generally, any amount over 26 weeks is a buyer’s market and under 26 weeks is a seller’s market. Sellers should pay close attention to the absorption rate because it demonstrates how long it might take to sell their property. If the rate is low, it could indicate a seller’s market, allowing them to price their home at the higher end of their suggested range. Conversely, if the rate is high, the seller will need to price at the lower end of the range (or even below the range) to realize a sale in a shorter period. Buyers should monitor the absorption rate because if the market is heading into a time of low inventory (low rate), underbidding could be futile as they may find themselves in multiple offer situations. Conversely, if the absorption rate is high, chances are the buyer will have time to successfully offer a lower price without fear of competing offers.
