The National Association of Realtors has calculated the ratio of sale price to original asking price for 262 counties in the United States to show what percentage of the original asking price sellers were able to get. The ratio for the entire country is 95 percent, meaning that homeowners sold their house for $228,400 while the asking price was $240,400. At the local level, though, the ratio varies between 80 percent and 99 percent. Adams, Colo., was the county with the highest ratio (99.3 percent) while Rabun, Ga., had the lowest (80.3 percent).
