Real Estate Supply & Demand

Fewer homes for sale in the Barrington area leads to a lower “absorption rate”, which is the amount of time that it would take for the current supply of homes on the market to sell. As a rule of thumb, a 6-month supply of housing inventory is considered a balanced market. It is a buyer’s market when there is more than a 6-month supply of inventory and a seller’s market when there is less than a 6-month supply.

When comparing “The Barringtons”, you can see in the chart below that The Village of Barrington had the lowest absorption rate at 4.9 months supply of inventory in January, 2018. North Barrington had 9.4 months supply of homes for sale, South Barrington had 9.6 months supply and Barrington Hills had a 20.8 month’s supply as of January, 2018.
