Homes For Sale Tredyffrin – Months Supply of Inventory

Market Trends May 2008 ~ Months Supply of Inventory*

The Months Supply of Inventory (MSI), Tredyffrin Township, comparison from May 2006 to May 2008 shows a drop in the number of days on the market beginning in January 2008 and an overall MSI of 7.5 Months. This is a significant increase over May of 2007 at 3.0 months. However, May of 2007 was very low and as we now know, not sustainable. If you take a look at the Average Days On The market for sold properties in the period, you can see that while there are many choices for Buyers, homes that are well priced, in good condition and desirable locations are selling in a reasonable number of days.

The Months Supply of Inventory is calculated by first determining the Absorption Rate. These two indicators are used to determine the answer to the Buyers Market-Sellers Market question. This is a picture of a Moderate Buyers Market where there are good opportunities for qualified Buyers and for Sellers.
