What is the Risk of Remodeling without a Permit?

Lawrence requires homeowner(s) to obtain a building permit before making most improvements to their homes. Many times the improvements will add value to the home thereby increasing property taxes. Without a permit, you may risk the chance that the city code enforcement will require you to come up to code on your improvements, whereby you could end up spending more money to make the remodel meet code. A potential Buyer may request copies of building permits from city offices.

Selling Your Own Home?

What you can do about safety? Don't host an open house alone. Unlock deadbolts. Have a phone. Be careful how you dress. Don't put your home phone on the sign. Lock your car. Avoid going into the basement with prospects. Have prospects show their ID before entering your home. If you are suspicious, get away.

What is a CMA and why do I need one?

Real Estate is unique. Your home's features are like no other. A comparative market analysis will compare your home to homes in the market that:

  1. Have not sold
  2. To others that have sold
  3. Will evaluate your home to others available in the market

Neighborhoods establish value and the housing market can change rapidly.
