Yes, the market is “on fire” for sellers right now in New England, especially in the Greater Newburyport area of Massachusetts and on New Hampshire’s Seacoast, but sellers can still be wary about listing their home.
Rightfully so. There is a lot that comes with selling your home and it’s not just the sentimental memories. There’s getting your home ready, setting the price, staging, open houses and then if you sell quickly there’s finding a new place to live.
Last year, Trulia posted a blog that still applies today. It provides five scenarios when a seller’s market can be problematic for sellers. They include:
- From “For Sale” to “Sold”
- The appraisal falls short
- Bad offers all around
- Trying to beat the 1031 clock
- Your big ego

Hopefully they will help ease some worries. And, remember, it’s always helpful to talk through any concerns with a real estate professional.
