One of the ways we track home sales is with something called the absorption rate. If you turned off the flow of homes coming onto the market, The absorption rate measures how long it would take buyers to purchase all the existing homes that are already on the market. The chart says a six-month supply or more equals a buyers market. 5 to 6 months supply of homes equals a neutral market and anything under a five month supply of homes equals sellers market. The latest numbers for the Louisville area absorption rate shows we have a 4.54 month supply of homes indicating where deep into a sellers market.
Buyers need to be aware that good homes are selling exceptionally fast. As a buyer you need to be prequalified by a bank that you trust and be working with a Realtor who’s plugged in to the marketplace.
