Enter the number of homes sold and the number of homes available into the Absorption Rate Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Absorption Rate.

## 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

## How to Calculate Absorption Rate?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Absorption Rate.

Example Problem #1:

1. First, determine the number of homes sold.
• The number of homes sold is given as: 50.
2. Next, determine the number of homes available.
• The number of homes available is provided as: 200.
3. 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
