The Medfield Homes For Sale Market Report

Some times in markets, it takes time for everyone to come together.  Medfield is a good example, where home sellers got really optimistic in 2016, but if they wanted to sell, they needed to come down.  The buyers came up -  slowly - but most of the asking prices and movement was done by the sellers, as they moved down to meet the buyers.

Normally, when you see prices converge, you'll get a bump in transaction activity.  But we don't get that here.  Why?  Well, seller behavior hasn't been affected by home buyer behavior.  It's been affected by other home sellers.  The rise of competition has made it easier for sellers to price realistically. They have been stubborn, as Medfield home sellers are willing to sit 55 days on average for a sale - which is really high for this cycle - but they have come down all the same.

What should potential home buyers do in Medfield?

Medfield at $300/ sq foot isn't inexpensive, but these prices actually are good value in this market relative to different points in the cycle.  Buyers haven't really pushed prices up in an irrational manner, so these prices reflect fair value in Medfield. With more choices, buyers can lean harder on sellers, and mostly they should feel good about where things are at here.

What should future home sellers do in Medfield?

Home sellers should be aware - competition - especially in the higher segments - is here and you won't be guaranteed a quick sale.  While lower priced homes will find traffic and quick sales, the luxury segment will find a more sluggish market that is price sensitive.
