## Absorption Rate Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Absorption Rate.

AR = HS / HA

- Where AR is the Absorption Rate
- HS is the number of homes sold
- HA is the number of homes available

To calculate an absorption rate, divide the number of homes sold by the number of homes available.

## How to Calculate Absorption Rate?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Absorption Rate.

Example Problem #1:

- First, determine the number of homes sold.
- The number of homes sold is given as: 50.

- Next, determine the number of homes available.
- The number of homes available is provided as: 200.

- Finally, calculate the Absorption Rate using the equation above:

AR = HS / HA

The values provided above are inserted into the equation below and computed.

AR = 50 / 200 = .25

Example Problem #2:** **

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

number of homes sold = 60

number of homes available = 180

Test your knowledge using the equation and check your answer with the calculator..

AR = HS / HA** = ?**
