Absorption rate is a term used in real estate to describe the speed homes are sold in a specific market in a specific time frame. It’s determined by dividing the number of homes sold by the number of available homes within the time frame. A high absorption rate means there’s a high demand for homes and that homes don’t stay on the market for long. An absorption rate over 20% is considered a seller’s market.
