Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from Willamette Valley Appraisal Professionals.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in an appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it's worth the money in the long run! Unless a homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like a professional appraiser does, it's practically impossible for them to fully grasp their local real estate market.

This isn't a discussion of the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Instead, the appraisal measures how much your home will bring on the open market.

In addition to helping you set a astute asking price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Make you aware of problems and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might delay a closing
  • Help prevent the possibility of hidden problems that cause sales to fall through

It can be surprising to people when they find out the value of their home is much more than they thought. So by taking the first step and investing in a professional appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they could have gotten originally.
