According to housing inventory stats, a balanced market is 6 months of inventory. Average inventory levels in the Portland Metro area are much lower, which puts the market as a seller's market. However, it is still a great time for buyers since prices are still very low and interest rates are also low at the same time!

The answer to your question would depend on many factors. Based on the description of the property, it has been recently updated. So, the market value of the house would be based on recent sales of similarly updated homes.

Are you working with a Realtor who has shown you this house? And, if so, is that person representing you or the homeowner? The listing agent cannot help you to determine fair market value because they have an obligation to the seller.

If you are not currently working with a Buyer's Broker, I would be happy to represent you on this or any other house you would like to see. I have been representing buyers since 2000 and have helped many families get happily moved into their new home. Please call me at 516-410-3000 if you are interested.

Virginia, your best bet is probably going to be Craigslist or your own social network. Be careful on Craigslist. I think the $800 is going to be a challenge for a studio. It's possible to rent a bedroom with others for something around that price. ... more

Hello Signe,

Your house WILL appraise for $600,000 in today`s market and after all the upgrades you have done to it, I have a comparable that was sold not too far a way from your house for $585,000 and that was a 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms house with 1,700 square feet of living space and only 10,650 lot size and that house has no view.

Feel free to email me if you have any questions,

Wow, you could be talking about me. I was just in the exact same situation. Large home and taxes, third just left for college. We made the decision to downsize to a home that made more sense for the two of us that are mostly there and of course enough bedrooms for when the kids do return and visit. In the long run after the expense of college and everything else, you must do what is best for you now. The economy not being the same as years ago you must weigh your options and do what is best for you financially.
It turns out that my kids love my new home and find it "cozy" and more initiate. Its not small by any means by its not enormous either. The most important thing is not the actual house but the family inside, the kids will adjust and come see you wherever you are. Turns out now I'm close to the shore and its an added bonus!
Feel free to call me and discuss. I can share with you your options.

And if you hadn't done all this, no doubt the appraisal would have been lower still. Appraisers take into consideration market trends and actual selling prices of similar properties. But they do not consider what your investment is. Unfortunately, buyers don't consider this either. ... more

It depends... If the general floor plan is acceptable then remodel. I don't think you want to be a buyer on this market anywhere in Bay Area.

Probably your best option is to get in touch with a local real estate agent and have them search for you. They should even be able to set up an automatic e-mail to alert you to any new foreclosures that come on the market. ... more

Depends on the location, the type of property, and whether it's priced properly.

Near where I am (Northern Virginia), the average days on market is well under 30. In some areas, it's under 15 days.

Check with a local Realtor for the statistics in your area. Your local MLS also can provide that information.

Wally Kerr Your Home Sold GUARANTEED answered:
It can happen really fast this time of reason for a home to sit more than 30 days if it is priced right. I just listed one at $545,000 that sold in just 19 days, and another at the $200,00 price point that showed 13 times in just 20 days. Aggressive marketing is key, that's our FORTE...! ... more

Annette Akey Panzek, Exit Realty Redefined answered:
Hopefully you are represented by an attorney and your own Realtor. Your attorney should be able to give you your legal options. By preforeclosure do you mean it is now a short sale or just that the seller is behind on payments? There is a big difference as a preforeclosure may still close like a regular sale as long as all liens can be paid off. A short sale involves more time and could take minimally 45 days for approval to 3-6 months or more. If the seller's lender thinks the sale price is too low it can reject the sale. If there is more than one lien holder that can delay things even longer since all will need to agree to taking less than what is owed to them. It's important you speak to you Realtor & attorney to find out all the facts and circumstances of the seller's position. ... more

Joe Van Fossen answered:
Hi Phuong,

Home prices have been steadily going up over the past several months and accelerating recently due to all of the competition on the market. The low interest rates are bringing more buyers to the market, while the low inventory is bringing prices up. Also, keep in mind that just because a home is listed for a certain price, it doesn't mean it will sell for that price. The home you asked this question from has been on the market for over 3 months. A well priced home in today's market will get multiple offers within a couple of weeks or days.

If you'd like to discuss the current market in OC and some possible options for you, please get in touch.

Best Regards,

Hi Jesse,

Great question. There are many factors to consider to answer it. The cost of staging varies based on the number of rooms you are staging, whether or not you are bringing in all the furniture and accessories or using a mix of both your own items along with items brought in by the stager. The size of your home is also another factor influencing the overall cost.
