Halifax/Dartmouth Absorption Rate (weeks): 35 (38, 39, 40, 40)
Another positive market performance this week! The numbers to note this week are the sales to list ratio, which is the highest it has been this year so far, and the absorption rate. Reducing by three weeks, the absorption rate is also a number that is at its best right now, and by best I mean lowest. Those two stats are good indicators of things to come in the near future, keeping in mind that they are based on inventory transactions of the past. I was thinking of a way to track a more tangible means to get a better focus on narrowing down the offer process to reflect a more current timetable. The first thing that usually happens (within 48hrs anyways) is that real estate agents change the status of a listing to "conditional/pending" once an offer has been accepted. I could add this statistic to the Blog if I had enough feedback saying that it would be welcomed. The positive being the ability to see how many people are out there making offers each week so it could be a gauge or tool to track buyers activity, the negative being that its still not a perfect indicator due to the fact that a percentage of accepted offers fall flat due to a condition(s) not being met and offers can go days before being agreed upon or entered into the system. I'll put it out there though and see what my loyal readers think. Heres the stat from the week;
Properties that went conditional/pending (accepted offer) 173

I would like to see the numbers for 'offers accepted this week'. I would also like to see the number of conditional / accepted offers that eventually fall through.
