My husband and I are downsizing an older custom home on the Wilamette River near Portland, Oregon. There aren't many comps, but how do we know we have landed on the right price since the people in the market we are selling are much fewer? We met with several realtors and their suggestions ranged almost !00,000. We had a pre-appraisal done and are fixing the little things which amount to about $2,000; the deck looks great but should be replaced according to appraiser, so we plan on giving credit since we are not sure they will follow the configuration of present deck. There is one window that should be replaced so we are doing this.
There are bathrooms which are clean and look ok, but need new countertops and sinks and tub hardware and flooring update. Since this job is about $7-8,000, we were advised to hold off. Do you think this is a mistake in the upper price range?
