North Coral Gables Condos Absorption Rate – June 2012
There is no way to price your Coral Gables condo for sale correctly without knowing the absorption rate for your neighborhood or area.
The absorption rate is the ability of the real estate market to absorb or sell all of the condo units for sale in a given amount of time.
For example, if 10 condo units are sold every month and there are 120 condo units available for sale, it will take 12 months to sell all of the condo units currently listed for sale. This does not take into count the number of condo units which will eventually come on the market in addition to those already for sale.
If you would like to sell in 6 months, you need to take the absorption rate into account. In the above scenario with 120 condo units for sale, we can estimate that only about 60 of them will sell in the next 6 months. If you need to sell within the next 6 months, you need to price your condo unit in the lower 50% of the price range for similar condo units in order for it to sell in the next 6 months. To sell in the next 3 months it would have to be priced in the lower 25% of the competition.
