The "hotter" the market, the closer to list price the ratio of sale to list will be. It is a very good indicator of what is a reasonable expectation on a properly priced home for negotiation.

Keep in mind, that this graph means nothing unless you take into account how well a property is actually priced to begin with. A common error for buyers is focusing more on wind lose negotiations than paying a fair price, resulting in walking away from good deals with reasonable sellers and completing on bad deals with lower offers on over priced listings.
