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

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in an appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays in the long run! Unless a homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like a professional appraiser does, it's difficult for them to understand the nuances of their local real estate market.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Instead, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on the true market value of your home.

Need help setting a price when selling yourself?

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

  • Impress buyers with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Make you aware of issues and get rid of any overlooked repairs hassles that might delay a closing
  • Decrease the possibility of unidentified problems that cause sales to flop

Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out the value of their home is quite a bit more than they thought. So spending a little on an appraisal allowed them to get several thousand more than they could have gotten originally. Others have an an overestimated opinion of their home's value, and an appraisal gave then the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home allowing them to quickly sell it rather than sitting on the market for months. Selling too high will not attract buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
