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

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 studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like an appraiser, it's difficult for them to get a handle on their local real estate market.

This isn't a discussion of how much you have invested in your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Instead, the appraisal measures the true market value of your home.

For Sale By Owner?

Quite a few OR homeowners are making the decision to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the assistance of a real estate agent. But to do it right, quickly and to get the most you can, what you need is a expert appraiser. You need objective opinions, and we understand that it can be very hard to take an objective look at 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 will getting a professional appraisal help you set a sensible asking price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very helpful negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Make you aware of issues and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Lower the chances of unidentified problems that cause sales to backslide

Folks are sometimes surprised to discover their home's value is a great deal more than they thought. So investing in a professional appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they originally thought. Alternatively, some people have an exaggerated opinion when they put a value on their home, and an appraisal gave then the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home allowing them to quickly sell it instead of gathering dust 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
