What Percent Of Homes Are Selling?
Finding Out The Ratio Of Homes SellingWhat if we tracked, over a long period of time, the daily number of homes sold in the real estate market and compared it with the number of homes coming onto the market. For example, if today 20 homes were listed "For Sale" in the MLS and 10 homes "Sold" today, we could say that for the very-very-very short-term, 50% of the homes sold. And if we tracked these figures over time, we could start to draw observations that would become increasingly more accurate as more time was evaluated. So that is what I did. We have been tracking daily inventory changes in the Tallahassee real estate market since the beginning of the year. I applied the above scenario to the data, and the following chart shows something very exciting..... This is the closest thing to "Great News" that we've seen since 2005. The trend for sales versus new inventory seems to be trending stronger. Unfortunately, with the data that we have compiled, 180 days (1/2 a year) is the long-term trend right now. I will feel much better when our long-term trend is one year or more.
