The Median Home Price Is Up, So My Home Is Worth More...right?
Press releases have touted a steady rise in median home prices in Maine over the past several months.  Yes, this trend is good news for Maine home sellers, but what does it actually mean for your home’s market value?
As detailed in the press releases, the “median sales price" is basically the middle.  Half of the homes sold for more, and half of the homes sold for less.  While the steady increase does show a trend, it does not automatically translate into the same percentage increase in the value of your … (19 comments)
