This is a chart displaying the Active Single Family Resale Homes in Franklin MA, as of 12/18/2016.  The price range of the resale homes ranges from a low price of $79,000 to a top list price of $2,295,000.  There are 27 resale homes available in the Town of Franklin MA, and this reflects an extreme seller's market.  The "absorption rate" today is 1.4 months. As homes sell and/or additional homes come on the market, the absorption rate changes.     There are three ways of describing the condition of a real estate market.  The market could be described as a seller's market, if the absorption rate is less than 6 months worth of inventory on the market. Sellers have the upper hand and secure a high price for their homes. If the inventory equates to 6 or 7 months, that can be described as a...

 The most powerful way of starting a new year is by ending the previous year with a “dynamic finish.”  The Todaro Team has 7 closings this week and more next week.  The postcards for the listings and buyers who closed will be mailed throughout the week, and many of these closing notifications will be mailed to the same home multiple times.   When one home receives 7+ postcards within a two week period, that’s a strong and very healthy position for any listing agent.  That’s a solid sign of success, and we all know “people like to do business with successful people!!”  The postcards are a firm reminder at the end of the year. Timing is everything, and the next Free Market Analysis postcard will be mailed during the last week of December. Anyone who is thinking of listing and/or buying a ...

When we market, we usually just focus on business.  There’s more to “doing good business” than just listing and selling property!  That may not make sense to everyone, but all work and no play does not make anyone the Cream of The Crop.We each need “ME TIME.”  That’s actually my favorite time, and I make it known to everyone when it’s a “me time” day. After one participates in that personal time doing what one is passionate about other than business, business is performed better. Christina Tocci is a member of The Todaro Team, and she’s not only a Champion at the Closing Table, but she’s a Powerhouse Crossing the Finish Line. I was sent this photo last evening, and I wanted to drop everything I was doing to write a post sharing the importance of having a source of energy release that yo...

Powerful Just Became More Powerful With Melissa DeVitoWhen we think of young, energetic real estate agents, what initially comes to mind is an agent who lists and sells resale homes. The Buliung Todaro Team went one notch better by hiring Melissa Devito who is not only well versed with resale properties but joins them with a strong new construction background.Melissa brings to the The Buliung Todaro Team a thorough knowledge of new construction; and that’s a bonus for all of her resale homeowners, as well as her following of buyers. We all know that “knowledge of the product sells the product,” and Melissa’s talents are extensive. The Buliung Todaro Team members are well-versed with new construction and resale homes, and Melissa adds another degree of energy and power to an already ener...

  The main reason most real estate agents market is to make the phone ring.  For an active listing, it’s the most reasonable way to expose the listing in search of a buyer.  When a listing has a status change of pending, most real estate agent will stop marketing.  Those who continue to market will do so for the purpose of finding a backup buyer.Rarely do those for whom I market lose an offer accepted status.  However, I continue to market every listing, until I have acknowledged and shared the closed status of each listing online and offline.The reason for marketing after a home is pending is to find more listing opportunities.  We share this with every homeowner who lists with us.  We show them how their home will be marketed.  Never have we had a negative from any homeowner.Every hom...

                         When a property is on the market for a day before the open house event, the listing agents need to be fast off the blocks. Oh, wait, the listing agent is a “seasoned runner.”  It makes sense now that Christina Tocci and her listing partner, Kate Regan, left everyone in the dust with preparing for their open house on 2 Warwick Rd in Franklin.The results were great with 22 couples visiting and an offer accepted resulting.  Congratulations are in order, even if this is an early stage of the process. When any agent from The Buliung Todaro Team sells a home, it’s one step at a time. The very first step is the most important and that’s securing the right buyer.  Preparing for and hosting an open house event with Christina Tocci and Kate Regan is always an experience t...

  Direct Mail Marketing is an "old school" method, but it can be designed to "multi-task."   This postcard will be mailed next week.  It shows Lorraine in "caring way" with Rocky in her photo.  The main message is a simple one. She's offering a Free Market Analysis.  Lorraine's most powerful slogan is the "most frequently hired agent in Franklin."  It's verifiable through MLS, and I always verify before I produce the postcard.I've portrayed Lorraine as a caring real estate agent, and she considers every one of her listings as more than "sticks and bricks."  She handles every homeowner's business as if it were her own. This postcard is simple; easy to read; one MUST take a moment to look at Rocky; and then there will be a glance at the two lines of copy.I use direct mail marketing to acc...
