Raleigh’s “Weak and Declining” Real Estate Market
Although there are probably different definitions, for the purpose of this post, the absorption rate is the ratio of closed sales compared to the monthly new listings added to the market each month.
This is an important trend to observe because it gives a good indicator of where the market is trending. In this example you can see that with exception for December of 2013 which is an outlier, in all of 2014 there has only been one month where the absorption rate has declined.
Since March Wake county real estate when compared to new listings sales has seen a strong increase in demand.
