You may have heard the terms "Sellers' Market" or "Buyers' Market". We look at how long it will take to sell the current inventory of homes if no new listings come on the market and market conditions do not change. This is also called "Absorption Rate".

Here's how we calculate Absorption rate.

First, we determine the rate at which homes are selling in a specific time period. For example, between November 1, 2012 and January 31, 2013 (92 days) there were 51 single family homes sold in Sharon that were listed in the Multiple Listing Service. Divide 92 51 to get the rate at which homes sold in this period. 92 51=1.8 That means that it takes less than 2 days on average to sell a home in Sharon MA.

Second, we take the number of "Active" homes for sale, which at the end of January 2013 was 41 homes listed for sale, and multiply that by the rate at which homes are selling. 41 x 1.8 = 73.8 days. Now, convert this number to months: 73.8 30 days per month = 2.46 months. We can round up to 2.5 and say that the absorption rate in Sharon MA is 2.5 months.

A balanced market is when the absorption rate is typically between 5-7 months. Anything below that is considered a "Sellers' Market" and above that, a "Buyers' Market". It's a Sellers' Market in Sharon MA right now because we only have 2.5 months of inventory.

This is a great explanation, Nina, and I'm so glad to hear that the market has shifted.  It will be interesting to see how things unfold this spring.

Thank you, Debbie! Jeff Dowler is the one who helped me understand the importance of explaining absorption rate to sellers and buyers.

Good morning, Ginny...One of the attractions of Sharon MA is that we're in such a great commuting location for so many industries...either to Boston by commuter rail or car, I-95, I-495, and Route 128...all within easy reach of Sharon. Add to that the feel of a "sleepy" beach town with Lake Massapoag at the center, good schools and a diverse community and voila! you have a town that is much in demand.

Thank you, David. We didn't experience the same kind of massive drop in housing that other markets had. Our recovery is an increase over the past 2 years, but not as sharp an increase as in some parts of the country. Fortunately, we have a lot of constant demand from buyers in Sharon MA.

Unfortunately, Christine, there's also a caution for sellers, too. There's still a market value and listing a home for sale at a higher price than market value isn't going to work regardless of the market. The market value will reflect the demand!
