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

If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it's worth the money in the long run! Unless a homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like an appraiser, it's hard for them to get a handle on local real estate values.

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