Listing at the right price is crucial and a professional appraisal from Willamette Valley Appraisal Professionals will ensure you get it right.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, a professional appraisal is a must. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it's worth the money in the long run! Unless a homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like a professional appraiser does, it's hard for them to fully grasp real estate market forces.

While important, an appraisal is not about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Rather, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on the true market value of your home.

For Sale By Owner?

More and more OR homeowners are choosing to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the assistance of a real estate agent. But if you're going to do it right, quickly and for top dollar, you need a professional appraisal. You need objective opinions, and we understand that it's difficult to be objective about your own home because of your emotional attachment to it. We will inform you of what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

In addition to helping you set a astute selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Allow you to have the edge while bargaining while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home's interior and exterior
  • Call attention to any issues and get rid of any overlooked repairs hassles that might stall a closing
  • Prevent the chances of unknown problems that cause sales to fall through

Folks are sometimes surprised to discover the value of their home is much more than they thought. So by taking the first step and spending a little on a professional appraisal allowed them to get several thousand more than they could have gotten originally. Alternatively, some people have an overestimated impression of the value of their home, and an appraisal gave then the assistance they needed in order to set a more reasonable price their home allowing them to quickly sell it rather than gathering dust on the market for months. Selling too high rarely attracts buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
