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

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays you in the long run! Unless a homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like a professional appraiser does, it's difficult for them to get a handle on their local real estate market.

We are not talking about how much you have invested in your home, or how much you want for it. Rather, the appraisal measures your home's market value.

Appraisals are valuable tools for people selling without an agent

More and more OR homeowners are deciding 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, with minimal waiting and to get the most you can, you need a expert appraiser. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, it's very 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.

Not only can getting a professional appraisal help you set a realistic asking price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very beneficial negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Alert you of problems and eliminate overlooked repairs hassles that might delay a closing
  • Help lower the possibility of unrevealed problems that cause sales to flop

Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out the value of their home is higher than they originally thought. So spending a little on an appraisal allowed them to get several thousand more than they originally thought. Alternatively, some people have an inflated opinion of their home's value, 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, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
