Putting a house on the market in or near Clackamas County? Contact Willamette Valley Appraisal Professionals and make sure you're setting the price right.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, an appraisal is a must. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays in the long run! Unless the homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like an appraiser, it's practically impossible for them to understand real estate market forces.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or how much you want for it. Instead, an appraisal assesses how much your home will bring on the open market.

For Sale By Owner?

More and more OR homeowners are choosing to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But to do it right, quickly and for the best price, you need a professional appraisal. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, it can be 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 selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very useful negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Make you aware of problems and get rid of any overlooked repairs hassles that might stall a closing
  • Help lower the odds of unidentified problems that cause sales to go up in smoke

It can be surprising to people when they find out that the value of their home is higher than they first thought. So by taking the first step and spending a little on a professional appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they could have gotten originally. Others have an an exaggerated impression when they put a value on their home, and an appraisal gave then the assistance they needed in order to set a more reasonable price their home in order for it to sell quickly instead of waiting on the market for months. An overpriced home will not attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
