Market Update – When Should You Put Your House on the Market? Are you waiting for the Spring market because you’ve heard that is the best time to list your property?  Some will say list your house, “just after the Super Bowl, or as soon as the snow starts to melt.”  Timing of when to put your house on the market is a very common question.  The answer depends on a few factors but the most important factors are: when is your house ready to show and when are you ready.

The Greater Newburyport real estate market is currently lite on inventory, as it frequently is in the middle of Winter months.  What’s this mean to sellers in the Greater Newburyport real estate market?  It means, don’t wait if your house is ready to be put on the market.  List now and you are likely to get a better price because there are many educated, quality buyers just waiting to act when they see the right property.

The Spring market is traditionally a very popular time to list, but sellers will experience substantially more competition because buyers have more options during the busy Spring market.  There are many very educated buyers in the Greater Newburyport real estate market place right now, many of which have been searching for quite some time.  These folks are sitting on the sidelines patiently waiting for the right property, and they clearly recognize when a great property comes along.   Don’t over-analyze when to put your house on the market.  This is a simple supply versus demand equation.  If your house is ready, jump in now and you are likely to get premium pricing while buyer demand is at its highest.

Call, text 781.858.5115 or email RobertBentley@Newburyport.com  to schedule a meeting to discuss listing your home or condo.

Finding the best agent just got easier, Newburyport MA

Finding the best agent just got easier.  In partnership with Zillow and Trulia, RealTrends.Com is a national site that provides rankings of Real Estate Agent performance.  They have been tracking Real Estate Agent performance at the agent, team, and brokerage level for the past eight years and provide consumers the data necessary to make an educated decision.

Buying and selling a home is typically one of the largest financial transactions you will make in your life time.  Therefore it is critical to choose a local experienced agent with a proven track record.  Do you purchase or sell a car without checking ratings websites?  Almost all people research properties online, but researching agents is also an important part of the equation.  You need someone you can count on to get the job done.

In real estate, like many other fields, the more transactions an agent has done, the more capable they are of effectively advising their clients.  At the end of the day, you don’t need a new best friend, you need someone with extensive knowledge and experience, which directly correlates with sales performance.

Bentley's Real Estate, Newburyport MA

The Newburyport real estate market remains strong, but prices adjust with increased Newburyport housing inventory for the summer months, and Fall is starting to look the same.  The area saw premium pricing during the Winter months due to the low inventory but the Spring and Summer markets have provided buyers with many more options.  Properties in the mid and lower tier price points are selling as long as they are priced appropriately.  The upper tier housing market is not moving as quickly but again, the properties with realistic price points are selling.

Although we see some fluctuation in inventory and price points, the overall demand for Newburyport is strong.  The thriving downtown has so much to offer.  Newburyport serves as the hub for other North Shore and Southern NH towns with many great restaurants and shops and it’s beautiful views along the Merrimack River and close proximity to the beach.  The schools are strong as well with Newburyport High School just being ranked 253rd in News Weeks 2015 annual top 500 high school ranking and only one of 19 in Massachusetts.

If you are looking  to move to Newburyport, now is the time and if you are already a resident, it is highly likely that you have made a great long term investment by purchasing property in Newburyport. Contact Robert Bentley of Bentley’s to find out how much your Newburyport home is worth in today’s Newburyport MA Real Estate market.

Newburyport has become a top town on the Massachusetts North Shore, so when folks learn they are relocating here they first look to learn about this great community.  “Home Buyers are increasingly researching community first and not Real Estate as quality of life, schools, active lifestyle all remain large considerations to the home buying process” says Robert Bentley, Boston Power Player and the top agent in Greater Newburyport.

“We are seeing increased traffic on Newburyport.com and soon will have Newburyport Home Search built directly on the site’s real estate page that will allow visitors complete and direct access to MLS home for sale data updated real time.” Excitement for the value of Newburyport Real Estate remains high and inventory comes and goes, so working with a top local agent is critical to the Newburyport Home Search.  Reach out to Robert Bentley anytime with questions @ 781.858.5115.

Hearts Set on Newburyport

Consistent with the trends of 2013, the current real estate market in Newburyport, Massachusetts remains competitive as families look for entry points into the community.

“There was an uptick in luxury properties for a brief moment as developers raced to take advantage of converting smaller homes on the market into million dollar listings, but for the most part homes between $300,000 – $600,000 are what you’ll see on the market right now,” said Robert Bentley, owner of Bentley’s 

And though inventory has improved from the market’s dry patch over the summer, explained Bentley, because of the high demand for homes in this price range they don’t stay on the market long.

“My suggestion is to be prepared. If you know Newburyport is where you want to be, have all your ducks in a row before you even begin your search. This way when you find something for your family, you can act fast,” said Bentley.

Flips & Resales Continue Into Fall

@KathrynCartini, Multimedia Storyteller

Bentley's Real Estate Home SearchHaving time only for a breathe after the summer/school deadline rush that carried through until Labor Day, Greater Newburyport’s No 1 Real Estate Agent Robert Bentley is now gearing up for the fall real estate season, which is proving to be competitive.

“It’s not a buyer’s or seller’s market at the moment,” said Bentley. “People are still waiting for more inventory to hit.”

According to Bentley, the Newburyport real estate market lacks single family homes for sale, with homes on the market down 25% from this summer. This leads him to believe our fall trend may be in land for sale.

“Currently there are 21 lots of land for sale, so we’re hoping builders will start snapping them up to create new single family homes and meet the demand,” said Bentley.

Prices for these lots of land range from $219,000 to $598,000, and Bentley is particularly keeping his eye on Twomey Drive by Caswell Development.

If you’re interested in taking advantage of this opportunity and listing your single family home on the market this fall, Bentley recommends starting with his Home Value Bestimate. This tool allows you to assess the value of your property online with a comprehensive report that compares the attributes of your home against those of other homes on the market or recently sold.

On the flip side, the Newburyport condo market remains strong as many renovations and resales continue into the fall.

“There are 48 condominiums on sale right now in the Greater Newburyport area,” said Bentley.

104 State Street, Newburyport, Massachusetts Home for SaleBentley’s represented the highest priced condo sold this year listed at $759,900. This unit is located in downtown Newburyport. The sale is scheduled to close this month.
