months of supply: Westport, CT Market Report - A buyer's market....or not! - 01/16/12 06:41 PM
One method for assessing the activity of the housing market is by calculating the absorption rate. The rate is determined by dividing the current number of active listings by the average number of homes selling each month. The resulting figure shows the number of months it would take to sell the existing inventory of active listings. A normal or balanced market would have a five to six month supply of homes. A seller's market, reflecting a limited number of homes for sale, would have a one to four month supply. A supply time of seven months or more would indicate a buyer's market.
