Months of Inventory: Spotlight 78703

July 21, 2011 by · Leave a Comment 


The key statistic you need to use to show the current relationship between inventory and demand is a term called “Month's of Inventory.” It is the number of homes for sale divided by the number of homes sold the month before. It is like an absorption rate and has always been a good way of analyzing changing demand and the number homes that can meet that demand. In “Average” markets it is normal to have about 6 months of inventory; home values are usually stable and prices rise slowly. Above 6 months of inventory, prices decline. Below 6 months of inventory, there is increased pressure to raise home prices.
