Significance of the Current Inventory and Absorption Rate
The sold units from January 1, 2017 to July 31, 2017 converted into an absorption rate give us an approximate length or period of time when the current inventory of 177 units would be depleted.
Given the absorption rate of 65 units sold in a month, the Town of Manchester, currently, has a 2- to 3-month supply. This is not a lot of properties on the market and with this inventory, unless demand is curtailed, home prices might increase tremendously.
Absorption Rate: “The rate at which available homes are sold in a specific real estate market during a given time period.” Click on the link for a better explanation of Absorption Rate.
Understanding Mean(numerical Average) and Median:
The median takes into consideration the middle value of the set of data. However the mean takes into consideration all of the values. Therefore high or low values will effect the mean. If the mean is higher than the median, there will be some unusually high values. If the mean is lower than the median, there will be some unusually low values.
These values are called anomalies or extreme values.
Our data above showed that the average price is higher than the median price. This means that there are higher-priced homes which pull the average price up.
