When Is The Best Time to Sell My Franklin, MA Home?


This post is worthy of a reblog…..the Franklin, Ma market is in great need of new, fresh listings.  This is an ideal time to list your home.

Via Kathy Stankard (RE/MAX Executive Realty):

As a 15 year Franklin, MA Realtor, I am routinely asked by homeowners when they should sell their home and if there is a best time of year to sell.  What these people really want to know, I believe, is what time of year will garner the highest price for their home.

There are different opinions about certain seasons being optimal for selling and other seasons being less convenient.  For example, some families will attest that trying to sell during the summer with kids home from school is very challenging in terms of keeping the home showing-ready.  I want to focus here on the benefits of reduced inventory for a prospective seller.

During a typical real estate year, the inventory of homes tends tolots of signs increase dramatically during March and April.  Sellers would have lots of competition with other sellers all vying for the same buyers. This year, however, has been very different in terms of inventory of available homes.  To date, excluding new construction, the Multiple Listing Service shows only 90 single family homes available in all price ranges in Franklin, MA.

What this severe shortage of available Franklin homes means to sellers is a golden opportunity!  This spring offers a massive number of buyers for each home out there. This has already become a multiple offer situation with several homes selling over their asking price for many lucky sellers.  Our Kelly & Colombo Team just had 5 offers on one of our listings with the home selling over asking price. 

If you are thinking of selling, now is the time to get the most buyer interest and therefore the highest price.  Unless, 50 homes suddenly go on the market in Franklin, MA, this may just be the best time to sell…

About susanmorrison

After living in Walpole, MA for many years, our family was transferred to the west coast when I was a senior in high school. In 1983, I graduated from Mission San Jose High School in Fremont, California. I am also a 1987 graduate of Providence College with a major in liberal arts and a minor in business administration. I bring to the table many years of sales experience beginning with thirteen years in Corporate Sales at Delta Air Lines. I'm the mother of three children and I'm very active within the Franklin, MA community. I am also a cancer survivor and support the American Cancer Society Charities.

My husband and I have built five homes and I've lived in a variety of other locations including Toronto Canada, Irving Texas and my current home in Franklin, MA. As a result of all my moving around, I came to the conclusion that I was an expert at moving...why not become an expert on the other side of the table? I earned my real estate license in 2004 and believe that I have found my true niche'. I can empathize with my clients on a variety of levels; whether they are buying or selling. And, like so many other good realtors out there, I believe that possessing good communication skills is one of the many keys to success.
