Home Selling in Plymouth>Question Details

Ethan Adams, Both Buyer and Seller in Plymouth, MA

I currently own a 4 bedroom colonial about 2000 sq feet in plymouth. We have added a high end kitchen

Asked by Ethan Adams, Plymouth, MA Sun Jun 29, 2008

(granite, cherry, stainless), we put on 50 year hardy plank siding, and a new 30 year shingled roof. I was curious what the current market place is for homes like this in plymouth?
Thanks

The upgrades are nice but the rule of thumb is that you get 70%-80% return on your upgrades and as the other agents have mentioned, location and age have a lot to do with it as well. One thing that isn't discussed as much is timing. Competition for buyers is tough right now but houses priced right are selling quickly this time of year because there is still a lot of activity. In a few months we'll see substantially fewer buyers on the market and therefore the competition will be even tougher and we'll see prices track further downward.

If you're selling this year, get a few agents in to the house as soon as you can and get it ready for sale ASAP.

Ethan with all of those upgrades you should be able to pull in a buyer faster than some of the homes in your neighborhood but still only if you price it right. Buyers will not pay much more for those upgrades but it will get them to choose yours versus your neighbors which in this market you may need all the help you can get. Have a realtor come check out your house and the upgrades and they will be able to give you a much better idea on what your house will sell for.

Hi, Ethan!
It depends on where you live in Plymouth. The areas vary in price if you live in Plymouth Plaza built in the 60s by Pemtom, if you live in the 80s built homes near Northwest Blvd., if you live over on Hwy.24 homes built in 70s & 80s by the Taco Bell, or if you live West of 494 off of Cty. 9 in 90s and newer construction. They are all priced according to their vintage and the amenities of that particular construction period. You don't want to be comparing your house to something 20-30 years older than yours, in a location next to a freeway or railroad tracks if your home has several acres and is much newer. Those are important mitigating factors when deciding what your home is worth.
