One of the most important items when considering whether to buy or sell a Central PA home is to look at the absorption rate in an area. This means the average inventory of homes for sale in a price range you are considering and see how many months of inventory (competition) is available in your desired price range.

History has showed that a six month inventory level is considered a normal market, below signifies a sellers’ market and above six month is considered a buyers market. Through the first six months of this year our market has been progressing towards a normal market in many price ranges. And although the market has improved substantially we have experienced an increase of 2.8% in the numbers of homes for sale. Meaning there are many homes competing to gain the attention of buyers in the market.

Accurate pricing and/or price adjustments are still critical to get a Central PA home sold.
