Selling your home in or near Clackamas County? Contact Willamette Valley Appraisal Professionals and make sure you're setting the price right.

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

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you have invested in your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Instead, an appraisal assesses your home's market value.

Going to sell your home yourself?

Quite a few 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, what you need is a expert appraiser. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, and we understand that it's hard to be objective about your own home because of your emotional attachment to it. We will tell you 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 negotiating while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home's interior and exterior
  • Alert you of problems and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Help decrease the chances of unrevealed problems that cause sales to deteriorate

It can be surprising to people when they find out the value of their home is more than they originally believed. So by taking the first step and investing in an appraisal allowed them to receive several thousand more than they could have gotten originally. Alternatively, some people have an exaggerated assessment of the value of their home, by getting an appraisal it helped them to to set a more reasonable price their home allowing them to quickly sell it instead of sitting on the market for months. An overpriced home rarely attracts buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
