As many of you know, Lance Shore is one of the few Appraiser/REALTORs in the Hardin and Meade Co. area. Other than location and condition a very important factor in the sale of a house is pricing. That is why getting a professional appraisal is so important. Keep in mind that a professional appraisal is far different than a market analysis or a broker price opinion. Appraisals are performed under very strict guidelines. As an Appraiser/REALTOR, not only can I help you establish a realistic price but I can additionally place the property on the market for you and hopefully get it sold. Proper pricing usually results in a quicker sale without having to list the property several times. After all, if the house does not appraise nothing else matters. Believe me, in today’s market and under today’s appraisal guidelines this is happening quite often. That’s why I am offering a unique opportunity of an appraisal/listing.
Here’s how this unique appraisal/listing opportunity works. We come out and appraise your house and you pay for the appraisal. When we place your house on the market and it sells you will be rebated the amount paid for the appraisal at the closing. It’s a great deal and it’s really that simple. An old saying in real estate is price it right and you can’t go wrong. Price it wrong and selling will be long. Call us today. We don’t think you can beat this offer.

Now that we are heading into summer and the water level is receding, folks are looking to sell their homes because we are approaching the "busy season". But how is the market compared to a year ago? From 5/20/2009-5/20/2010 there were 1485 sales with a median sales price of $141,000 in Hardin and Meade Counties. So far in the past 12 months we have seen 1355 sales but the median sales price is $157,000 according to the HKAR MLS. Although there has been less activity in the past year, values are going up. I've also been noticing several subdivisions around the neighboring counties that have inventory in excess of 12 months, which could be a combination of relocations out of Ft. Knox, increasing confidence in the economy and folks who have been waiting on the busy season to sell. All in all the market in the Ft. Knox area is doing well, and we are looking forward to the rest of the year.

One way home owners can increase their property value is by regular maintenance, and periodic updates. These change the effective age of your home. Effective age in a nutshell is the age of the homes it competes with. IE- an updated 20 yr old home may compete with a 5 year old home, therefore decreasing it's effective age and increasing it's value.
