I found the price history on the MLS. It was listed first on April 3 for $297k, went pending on April 25. Then, it must have fallen out of escrow, but instead of putting it back on the market, they cancelled the listing and relisted it at $289k on 5/5/2014. Looks like a very nice house... are you interested in seeing the inside? Call me if so, it is owner occupied, so just have to give them notice! Sharon (503) 686-1665 ... more

Hi Joanne,

Don’t get too excited about everything you see on the internet. I think someone listed the price wrong putting a 3 where a 2 should be. Looking at what is pending and sold in that complex in the last 6 months had a high of $250,000 and nothing currently active on the market.

If you would like to get accurate MLS listings send me an email or click on the link.

Hi Joan,

You live in a great neighborhood and I’m sure you are aware that it is a seller’s market now and prices are all about supply demand and location. By the time these homes are ready for occupancy that could be the price like it or not they will sell.

Kathy Jo is right. No site can be 100% accurate, or even 80-90% accurate on a housing price, if they haven’t seen your home, and don't know materials, build quality, view, etc.

No real estate website can tell you what your home is worth, especially in this market when things are going so fast (in most areas). You should always talk to at least two Realtors when listing your home and maybe a third if the prices are more than 10-15% off from each other.

And the listing price is only one reason of many to list with a professional Broker, as they can help you navigate through the offer process, inspection process and add value in many ways in this always changing housing market.

Trust your instincts, which it seems like you have by questioning a value.

Hi Steve,
Although some agents would tell you to hold on..It's easy for them to say. If you are tired of being a landlord, and want to sell, then it is time. What I have found in Oregon, alot of agents have lost their own personal homes, so some agents have gotten a bad taste in their mouth, therefore, they can't give an unbiased answer.
It's unfortunate, but true. The market isn't that bad, and yes it is busy and getting better. It really depends on the agent, their attitude, and how hard they are willing to work. Have a great holiday!

This seems like it should be easy but it's not, you actually have to file a formal appeal with the county tax assessor's office, if the difference is completely obvious, they will have the appraiser sent out to re-evaluate your taxes.
The problem ~ The taxed assessed values are not actually determined Year to Year, but rather increase according to a predetermined schedule. Go to the county office and tell them you would like to contest the taxable amount of your home, they should be able to point you in the right direction.
