So how does 2011 compare? The average single family home in Quincy had a sale price of $316,143, which is a 3% decrease from 2010 (Average Sale Price in 2010 - $325,394). In 2011, 24% of the single family homes sold were in the price range of $250,000 - $299,999. Coming in second was the $300,000 - $349,000 price range at 20% of the homes sold. Quincy did experience an increase in the number of transactions in 2011, which is a good sign that more buyers are entering the market.
“One of the biggest trends we experienced in 2011 was that buyers were less interested in homes that require a great deal of work,” states Madelene Cheney, Broker/Owner of Red Door Real Estate. “To compete with lower priced bank owned properties homeowners should put their best foot forward and prepare their home for sale by making minor repairs or reducing clutter prior to listing their home on the market.” The market is flooded with many bank owned properties that are in poor condition. The average homebuyer is looking for a home that is priced competitively but is still in “move in” condition. Taking a proactive approach, Red Door Real Estate started offering home staging consultations for their clients to help prepare their home for sale.
