*Absorption rate is the number of months it will take to sell the existing inventory.   6 months is a balanced market, over six months a buyers’ market and under six months a sellers’ market.  The absorption rates above are based on the last six months sales.

With the exception of condos over $1M and single family homes over $5M the Brentwood L.A. housing market favors sellers. The high end luxury market, as in most areas, is the one that is suffering.
