Villebois is a great neighborhood in Wilsonville! I have sold 8 homes there the last 2 years. There are no existing homes in that price range and no new construction currently but that changes frequently as they develop new lots. There are new construction Townhouses in that price range and there is 1 stand alone model that can fit in that price range with minimal upgrades. $275K is a better price range to have more available options. HOA dues will vary from $85/mo to $170/mo for those models.

This an Investors market and finding a good renter likely won't be a challenge. You could expect to pay 7-12% of monthly rent for a good Property Management company.

If you would like further information, I could certainly keep you informed as new inventory comes on the available.

Good luck!

It's good to see buyers with recent foreclosure able to buy again. See Comstock if you have a buyer in need.

Any damage made to the property will be who's responsibilty? What if the buyers decide to walk just after that one year? Nothing can force them to close! What if prices are higher? You may want more...what if prices drop? Buyer may want to pay less. ... more

As a Wilsonville specialist who has lived in Wilsonville for 16 years I may have the answers you need. I am a residential specialist and have a fairly good idea of what rentals are going for in the Wilsonville area. As mentioned in an earlier post the level of inventory is low for single family homes but having someone looking for you specifically can give you an edge in finding new on-the-market homes. Also I have resources to provide you with excellent lender options to help you identify the loan that will serve you best. Wilsonville is a wonderful town that has really grown in the last 10 years and the schools are rated highly too. If you'd like to speak to me about your needs and wants I'll do my best to direct you to the resources that will be the best fit for you! I also look forward to earning your business.

All the best,

The property should be compared to otherwise similar riverfront properties, even if they may not be in Wilsonville.

I am happy to say that a couple of weeks ago one of our Clients settled on a purchase three years and two months after short selling their previous home. They reestablished their credit and received an FHA mortgage for their purchase. FHA underwriting guidelines currently require three years between short sale and purchase. Other loan options may exist but to the best of my knowledge, FHA loans are the most flexible in this situation. ... more

David Peck answered:
The answer all depends on the types and amounts of upgrades that you want. Any builder can do any type of upgrade to a home, it all comes down to cost.

Builders usually have an upgrade package with all the prices listed so you can see what the additional costs will be. Most buyers make the upgrades part of their original offer so prices can be negotiated.

Keller Williams is an image, a particular brand and that's the extent of it. Agents are the front line people who do the marketing, counsel clients, negotiate, and keep an eye out for great deals that come on the market. They also build knowledge and share that knowledge.

I agree with others here. You want to interview several agents. You can use Trulia if you like. Go to the home page. On the right side of the menu at the top of the page is a link called "Find a Pro."

Hi Rick,

I have been a certified residential appraiser for near 17 years in Oregon and I do work in the Portland area. I have access to all data that is used to prepare a credible appraisal. I am approved with a majority of lenders and have the qualifications otherwise to become approved. A majority of underwriters presently are very scrutinous of appraisals to the point of classifying census tract code markets as declining markets, as well strict requirements for comparable distances from the subject, time of sale, and inclusion of listing & pending data. Some appraiser's just go through the process and keep it simple versus taking the time to put together a sound report. After many years in this business, I can only state that (in my opinion) I wish other appraisers would take what they do more seriously and with higher regard for the diligence in analysis. There are good appraisers out there, don't get me wrong...but it's the same for any industry.

Check out my bio in Trulia (click on the personal photo) and/or my website(s): for brokerage for appraisal

Jeni, if you were a signer on the loan to finance the mobile home, you can be held responsible for the payments and the deficiency balance. If you were not a borrower, it is very unlikely the bank can demand payment from you. I am a banker with many years' experience in real estate lending. Good luck. ... more

Kelly Gebler answered:
Hi - I just did a quick check in the multiple listing and found your home for sale. It's absolutely gorgeous and looks like you're already priced under what you paid for it 3 years ago and are priced considerably under the 2 other similar homes for sale right on your street. I pulled similar comps around you (priced between $500,000 - $800,000 and having between 2,800-3700 square feet) and came up with this rough scenario: There are 15 similar active listings (yours included) showing being on the market an average of 61 days so far and the average list price is $612,507, there are 2 pending sales with an average list price of $599,000 and an average of 121 days on the market prior to an offer, and there are only 4 similar homes that have sold in the past 6 months at an average price of $625,250 - but they were only on the market an average of 28 days. From what I can see - it looks like many of your major competitors are new construction homes in the Villebois & Arbor Crossing subdivisions. They don't have a ton showing as active - but my guess is that they have only a sampling for what's for sale in RMLS and have many to choose from on site.....the cheapest active listing they have on RMLS that's similar to your home is listed at $549,900. That listing hit the market 1 year ago and started at $599,900 and there's no sign of it having had any pending sales. In most instances, even though your home is fairly new, a buyer will pick brand new construction over a home that's been lived in almost every time. Renaissances homes are of superior quality - but with jumbo loans much harder to get and rates starting to go up a little - a cheaper similar home will be an easier sell. The 3 things that effect a home selling are always Location, Condition & Price.......realistically you are optimal for all 3......but the only one you can play with is the price. Choices are to keep dropping the price and write off the loss, or offer something the other homes do not.....I've seen people offering a trip to Hawaii as an incentive, Plasma TV's, etc. Another option to think about would be to offer to carry a 2nd, or sell on a lease option - a little riskier options though.

Bottom line is - what's it costing you each month to keep this house and how long can you continue to do that......even if it were to sell today - you'd be looking at paying on it for at least an additional 30 days. If you were to decide that you could keep paying for around 4 months more (as an example) - I would take what you would spend over those 4 months on this home, split that amount in half - and drop the price by that much. Right now you are priced over the average so your market time will take a little longer than average. If you get below that average list price you could potentially see a much quicker sale.

I hope all that helps and I wish you the best of luck in getting sold!
