Have confidence in your listing priceWorking with a real estate agent to list your home? Then they'll give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that includes competing homes for sale in your town. It's a good starting point in deciding your home's listing price.
Even if you're working with the most experienced real estate agent, it's definitely in your best interest to also have a third-party's objective opinion before you sign a Listing Agreement. If you're going to minimize the house's time on the market and maximize your profit, this is a really important step.

Home improvements that add valueThere are so many important questions to ask yourself before listing your house. Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it... Does the carpet need replacing... Do I need to complete my closet remodel... Virtually any project can affect value in some way. Unfortunately, not all of them have an impact commensurate with their cost. Remodeling your kitchen may improve the appeal of a home, but be sure to figure out the costs involved before diving in. It may not justify the time and costs involved.
Lancaster Appraisal Group can help you with these important decisions. Unlike an agent, an appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for. An appraisal fee from Lancaster Appraisal Group is based on our efforts to finalize your report, and are not a percentage of the sales price. When it comes to investing in your house and settling on a fair sales price, a professional appraisal from Lancaster Appraisal Group will help you make the wisest decisions.
