Real Estate Sales for Natick, MA - Home Sales and Real Estate Market Report (Feb, 2016)

The Natick Homes For Sale Market Report

As is often the case in Real Estate markets, there are always a few home sellers in every town who want a bit more than the market will bear.  They tend to sit around a little bit longer on the market. But let's look at Natick:
Home Sellers are very optimistic about the market.  Probably too much.
Can’t see the chart? You can find it Here .
Holy cow. Sellers are a whopping $57 higher a square foot than the sales in the last six months. That's not optimistic - that's flat out crazy talk. As an example, a home that was 2000 sq feet, sold at around $540,000, but current asking prices are $650,000. Natick has been great for Home Sellers, but I think it's unlikely to see that kind of price rise so quickly. Home sellers will need to come down.

What should active home buyers do in Natick ?

Active home buyers will find reasonably prices homes hard - near impossible - to find in this environment. Although the average home seller has been on the market over twice as long as successful sales, they are still asking crazy premiums. Could there be a good value out there? Sure. But don't expect it.

What should potential home sellers do in Natick ?

Home sellers in Natick, like in Millis, have a great opportunity to appear a value, by pricing expensively, just not exorbitantly. Home Buyers might percieve you as a value, and you can get the best of both worlds.
Natick still has a super high HSI, but with inventories so tight,
transaction volume has moderated - and prices have stalled.

Real Estate Sales for Millis, MA - Home Sales and Real Estate Market Report (Feb, 2016)

The Millis Homes For Sale Market Report

Home Sellers in Millis should love this report, as the HSI is at an all time high. A little caution is warranted, as part of the great HSI is that there are so few homes for sale, and this year, that could change fast. Nevertheless, optimism is in the air, as Home Sellers are asking prices far above recent sales - hoping the tight market will work in their favor.
Home Sellers expectations are far ahead of the home buyers,
but home buyers are near their highs in paid prices.

What should active home buyers do in Millis ?

Home buyers should understand that most homes are priced high above recent sales; with so few homes on the market, it would be good to have a backup town or two - it's really tight in Millis.

Real Estate Sales for Milford, MA - Home Sales and Real Estate Market Report (Jan, 2016)

The Milford Homes For Sale Market Report

Checking in on the housing market in Milford, we're presented with this odd chart:

Prices in Milford are a little strange, with asking prices below
recent sale prices.
Can’t see the chart? You can find it Here .
What gives?  It's been three reports in a row where the sale prices have been higher than the asking prices.  How can that happen?  Well, it's because the homes that are currently on the market - and not selling - have the greatest issues, and have to be marked down far below the average sale in town. Usually, the ratio of "lots of issues" homes to "average to only a few issue" homes favors the nicer homes, so it doesn't bring down the average.  But there's clearly a few distressed homes in Milford that are working on the number.

What should active home buyers do in Milford ?

Recognize that with two reports in a row above 200, prices in Milford are under pressure.  That means well priced homes in good condition are selling fast - really fast.  In fact, the average home sale is in just 40 days - so many homes are selling in the first couple.  Home buyers need to know the market, and know Value, so they can act when they see something.

What should potential home sellers do in Milford ?

Home sellers look to be set up for an easy spring.  With inventory near all time lows, and buying pressure well established, there are plenty of anxious home buyers looking for your home.  Be ready to move by getting your home in top shape to make the buyers move quickly - and a competitive situation may be headed your way.

Real Estate Sales for Medfield, MA - Home Sales and Real Estate Market Report (Jan, 2016)

The Medfield Homes For Sale Market Report

Medfield buyers grow impatient, and move their prices up to meet the market.  Home sellers helped too, by cutting prices until they were in reach.  Unlike some other markets, the current inventory - what little there is - is priced pretty close to market.  I expect that new sellers will probably reach a little more, but buyers have already moved up - it's not clear how much more they will move.
Can’t see the chart? You can find it Here .

What should active home buyers do in Medfield ?

Home buyers should realize that properties are scare, and buyers are pushing prices up.  What seemed like a reasonable value six months ago is now going to sell quickly, as the market has moved up.  Well priced properties are going to attract a lot of attention - and move quickly.
