How do you calculate the rate of absorption and at what point would you say there is an over supply of inventory?

You can Google Absorption Rate Analysis and get some good explanations, but basically, you determine how many homes are on the market within the subject's parameters (neighborhood, size, amenities, etc.), then determine how many sales you had during the last year (or six months or whatever the client wants you to use as a guideline) and if you have, say 48 on the market and 24 that sold over the last year, then the market is absorbing only 1/2 home per month. Therefore, you have a 24 month supply......as I tell my trainees, divide the big number into the little number and that tells you how many (or part of) homes are selling each month.

BTW it was one of my trainees who was smart enough to "Google."

This is what I provide. It may look long, but I use it for each Quincy assignment and just edit to reflect the subject and the effective date of value.

Like most communities in the Boston area the highest prices occurred in 2005. Both the average and the median prices have decline. The average sales price between 2006 and 2007 was a negative 3.4%. The median sales price between 2006 and 2007 was 4.3%. This data does not appear to reflect the subject and the sales presented in this report. The subject's subdivision market of the $325,000 - $425,000 price level appears to be stable.

I do not believe there is an over-supply of listing throughout Quincy for the single-family market as of June 06, 2008.

When the unsold inventory reaches a level which would require more time to sell off than current reasonable exposure time. (example: Average or typical exposure time of about 180 days. Current sales volume about 12 sales per month with 150 actives and half a dozen pendings. If no change in the market it would take 450 days or so to sell the standing inventory instead of 150.)
