As of today, the market absorption rate (at the time of this posting) is 5.23. Whatever does that mean?! It means that if no other properties were listed for sale in Palestine, it would take 5.23 months to deplete the housing inventory in Palestine, Texas. An absorption rate between 3-6 months is generally considered a balanced market. Anything less than 3 month’s of inventory is a seller’s market. If the trend stays on the same path it has for the last several months, we will officially enter a seller’s market soon.
The market is always changing and watching the statistical data is a great way to keep an eye on the trends. 2016 is already off to a promising start, so we will see which ways the market sways!
