Home prices of towns abutting large cities are at historic highs. COVID has forced employers to accommodate remote working situations which have people fleeing high-priced big cities. They are snatching up inventory as soon as it hits the market and this has created a bit of a frenzy in some parts of the country.
For example, on the North Shore of MA/ Merrimack Valley and also on Cape Cod, homes are selling for 10, 15 even 20% over asking, sometimes sight unseen!
But how does one capitalize on this? Is it foolproof? Well sort of. But you can still miss out. Selecting the right Sellers Agent In Amesbury or any other town is critical. But why? Isn’t the market doing all the work? Not entirely
Marketing matters. Presentation matters. Staging matters- and more than ever. If a home does not live up to the inner city budgets at first glance, you may still wind up with asking or over asking price, but it will not be as has as it could be. Marketing is critical, gone are the days where the decision of the buyer was made within the first 30 seconds of pulling in the driveway, they’ve made their decision before they even call their agent! Everything is right there online for them.
