Putting a house on the market in or near Coos County? Contact Turner Consulting & Evaluation and make sure you're setting the price right.

If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. Don't think of an appraisal as purely an expense; it pays in the long run! Unless the homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like an appraiser, it's hard for them to understand the nuances of their local real estate market.

It's tempting to want to base your home's value on how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Instead, an appraisal provides a professional opinion on the true market value of your home. Once you break it all down, at the end of the day, your house is only going to sell for the price another person is offering to give you.

For Sale By Owner?

More and more Oregon homeowners are deciding to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But to do it right, with minimal waiting and for top dollar, what you need is a professional appraisal. It can be very difficult to get an objective opinion, and we understand that it can be very difficult to take an objective look at your own home because of your emotional attachment to it. We will tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

In addition to helping you set a sound selling price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:
  • Be a very beneficial bargaining tool once you have a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home's interior and exterior
  • Make you aware of problems and get rid of any overlooked repairs hassles that might stall a closing
  • Prevent the possibility of hidden problems that cause sales to go up in smoke
It can be surprising to people when they find out their home's value is much more than they thought. So spending a little on an appraisal allowed them to get thousands more than they originally thought. Alternatively, some people have an exaggerated assessment when they put a value on their home, and an appraisal gave them the assistance they needed in order to set a more reasonable price for their home - allowing them to quickly sell it - instead of sitting on the market for months. An overpriced home causes buyers to back off, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting your valuable time and draining your resources while you're in Real Estate "limbo".
