Almost any real estate broker will be willing to provide a free Comparative Market Analysis (a pricing analysis using comparable properties recently sold). Because CMAs can be subjective, I would suggest getting two, so you can compare the price opinions of different brokers.
After obtaining a CMA (or two), if youâ€™re concerned about the accuracy of the reports, or not satisfied with the thoroughness of the broker(s), you should consider getting a fee appraisal. The appraisal process is similar, but the report is more detailed, and the person completing the report is neutral. That is, he has no interest in guiding you toward a price that produces a particular outcome, such as making you willing to sign a listing contract.
Appraisals can only be done by state-licensed appraisers, who can be found in the Yellow Pages of the phone book, or online at http://oregonaclb.org/.
A typical appraisal runs about $450 to $500, but can vary depending on the size and use of the property.
Best of luck!
