I'm not an expert on the Buffalo area real estate market by any means but I do pay attention to the national real estate trends as reported by local and national resources. A report released in March identifying "the strongest real estate markets for 2011 included the Buffalo area as the number two market nationally to keep an eye on.
The report specificall states the Buffalo area has "one of the fastest-raising median list prices and lowest foreclosure rates in the country." It indicates the median sale price has increased by 14.3 %.
All of this information may not mean anything to you but it is something that you should be aware of if considering selling your home. The amount it should be listed for should be arrived at by you and your agent...but don't overlook this important information.
Hope this is helpful.
