What should potential home buyers do in Medfield?

Ugh.  Most homes are way above where they should be - which is why many are not buying them.  Know what HAS sold.  The current crop of homes are largely overpriced, and will confuse your brain as to where the recent price-level is.  Most buyers are looking at multiple towns, but for those only looking in Medfield, you could get confused.  With average sales at $265 - and asking prices at $331 - there's a big gap between what buyers will pay, and what sellers want.  Don't count on your appraiser to fix the the problem!  That's always a mess, even if they catch it.

What should future home sellers do in Medfield?

Home sellers have a chance to thread the needle.  Ask a lot vs. past sales, but less than the current homes.  Some buyers may percieve your home as a relative value - and pay top dollar.  It's a tricky wicket, but this is the setup to try it.
