The Medfield Homes For Sale Market Report

Here in Medfield, an expensive town in my area, as it lies closer to Boston, we see that prices are having trouble moving up.  After a great run, moving from 220 to 280, they remain about where they were for the past 2 years.  Sellers expectations have come down - and stay down.  

So what's up in Medfield?  Well this report shows that there is a limit to the affordability of housing, and this part of Massachusetts has been bumping up against that limit.  With a limit to the number of buyers that can pay $300/ sq foot, and those buyers having options elsewhere, they are either choosing to get less in other towns or choosing to pay less in other towns.  Either way - Medfield has been capped out, and it'll stay that way until there's more demand, which could happen with rising prices to the east, or continued falling supply.

Can’t see the chart? You can find it Here .

That won't be easy though -supply remains at record lows. The market is as good for sellers as ever - but the prices rises aren't happening.  In fact, if you look at the data, there's some signs there that we are topping out.  Average sale price dropped - showing that the lower stuff is moving quicker than the higher priced stuff - and the current average days on market for actives is 120 days - not the 75 we are used to seeing.  

What should potential home buyers do in Medfield ?

Recognize that there is softness in the upper levels of the market.  More sellers than buyers.  Lots of competition in the lower levels however.

What should future home sellers do in Medfield ?

Some parts of the market are competitive, and if your home isn't priced right, you're going to sit - potentially for months.  Some luxury homes will find the demand very soft.  Be smart about how you evaluate your competition - it's not just in Medfield.
