Nathalie -

Carlisle has one of the higher price points in the area, so there is a smaller buyer pool in general.

In 2005, the average sales price in Carlisle was $955,383 and the median sales price was $800,000. In 2014, the average sales price was $924,646 and the median sales price was $804,500. 2015 data is not complete yet, but is trending slightly below 2014. While that not may look like much of an increase, that is up from 2011 when the average sales price was $733,675 and the median sales price was $614,750.

Since Carlisle is at one of the higher price points and there is less inventory than other towns, the statistics can be impacted by sales on the low and/or high end.

If you want details by year feel free to reach out to me.

There are many variables in a basement rehab and what the value of it may be. in General I would say a basement rehab is worth about 1/4 to 1/2 of upper level finished space.

A "third bedroom" would definitely increase value but it needs o be a true bedroom. It would require a closet and a second egress.... There are window size requirements that would give it a second egress.

Obviously the fit and finish of the remodel as well as if the back may be a walk out with full sized windows will also effect he value.
