The Medfield Homes For Sale Market Report

Like a number of early moving, more expensive towns, Medfield is  - well - less exciting than some of the developments that we're seeing further West.  Once affordability becomes an issue, people move West.  What this price chart shows is that prices around $275 a square foot really start limiting how much further you can go up.  Sure, Medfield has climbed, but it's only up about 9% in 3 years - just 3% appreciation.

That doesn't mean things are gloomy.  Like everywhere else, home inventories are thin, even at the high prices that Medfield is getting.  The HSI is very high, and things are still great for sellers.  Sellers are showing more patience to get those prices too - current actives are averaging 116 days on market, which is really high for this market. 

 

What should potential home buyers do in Medfield?

Home buyers should make sure what they want is possible in Medfield.  There's not much to buy, or research, so don't spend 12 months looking for a unicorn house - a mythical combination of size, price, and condition.
