Let’s take a look at the current Portsmouth real estate market. Currently there are 199 active listings of single family homes and condos in the Portsmouth market. During the past 10 months there have been 205 sales or 20.5 homes sold per month. By dividing the number of sales per month into the number of active listings (199 divided by 20.5) we get the absorption rate for Portsmouth which is 9.71. That means at the current sales rate it would take 9.7 months to sell all the houses current for sale and assuming no new listings came on the market which is not realistic.

Generally more than a 6 months supply of inventory indicates we’re in a buyers market but in this case not a terribly strong one. So, over 6 months of houses for sale equals a buyers market, less than 6 months equals a sellers market.

The ‘heat map’ below gives the median list price ranges for the various areas along with prices per square foot, total number of current active listings, and median days on market; all great indicators of the current state of the market. Happy to provide that information for your area, just send me an email Jim@JimLee.com and I’ll get it right back to you.
