So far this year we have had a classic economic struggle of Good vs. Evil.

The Good Side

* Values are stable to rising (even Case-Shiller shows metro Detroit values are up!)

* We are creating jobs in Michigan

* Consumer Confidence moved up a bit

* Strong pent up buyer and seller demand

* Record low combination of prices and interest rates


The Evil Side

* Lack of saleable home inventories

* Larger percentage of homes with little to no equity

* Slow job growth

Absorption Rate Graphs are completed by "The Pearson Group" for several areas.  We often post these charts for buyers and sellers to view and always provide the charts to each seller at the time a home is being listed.  The Absorption Rate Reports reveal the supply and demand in areas and often reveal a variety of variables that can be helpful to sellers who want to assure their home is competitively priced and it can also help buyers understand if they are dealing with a "Buyers" or "Sellers" market.
