There are actual equations that will prove to you if you’re in a buyer’s market or a seller’s market.  That absorption rate, plus recent closed sales can help you gauge the most appropriate offer and keep you from over paying and leaving money on the table.  We also present these figures to the seller or seller’s agent, along with your offer, so that the seller clearly understands the market conditions.
