Listing To Sell
Your time is valuable and so is our Realtor services. Pricing at market value is crucial to giving your family a smooth transition into your new home. After all, nothing is worse than losing out on the perfect new home because the old house wasn’t priced right. When we work with you to arrive at a list price we go beyond the basics like “3/2 ranch in Gresham”, “4 bed 3 bath in Beaverton” or even “Close-in, Old-Portland Home, inner Southeast” and really examine the property, the condition, and the neighborhood. Offering a fair price for your listing means that buyers will compete and at times offer more than list price. Call us when you’re ready to have seasoned Realtors help you sell your existing Portland real estate and acquire your dream home.

Newsflash: Money Isn’t Everything
Yes, your bottom line is important but there’s many factors needed for a successful real estate deal. We sell homes in Gresham, Oregon all the way to Hillsboro and the new developments in Beaverton. Our team is also experienced in Tigard and on south to Oregon City. Many Realtors mistakenly think a deal is all about the selling/buying price. However, introspection reveals that time and energy are also vital to happiness. Time with loved-ones, time to pursue one’s dreams, hobbies or goals, and even time to just relax and enjoy a relaxing beverage after a day’s work or play are often defining moments in life. It’s also worth noting that some in some areas you’ll still be competing against Portland short sale listings. For those in demanding careers, busy family or social schedules, keeping a healthy amount of free time is crucial to psychological integration. If you work in Beaverton but live in Gresham or vice versa we have effective, tested solutions for you. It’s no surprise that in real estate time is often more important than just money (whether buyers/sellers know it or not). We’re residential specialists and we’re here to help you make things work for your lifestyle. Factors like getting settled in the new home before important family events or the start of the school year can mean the difference for a happy family.
Those comfortable in their current situation are sometimes willing to trade months of searching real estate sites or buying a short sale for savings (just beware of being penny-wise & pound-foolish). However, short sale specialist Realtors point out that If you need to move now short sale listings may not be your best bet. For others, a current living situation is costing them money in terms of lifestyle, longer commutes etc. For some clients, selling at a slightly lower price is cost-effective by saving time/money or eliminating a frustrating commute which pays immediate dividends in terms of saved money and reduced stress. Imagine, in a matter of weeks you could cut your commute time in half, saving wear and tear on your car, helping the environment while at the same time giving you hours more leisurely time every week. Whether your property is in Beaverton, Lake Oswego or even Gresham, your bottom line is very important in Portland real estate and buying and selling right are critical to your family’s financial future.

Having Your Own Buyer Agent Doesn’t Cost You
As buyer agents we get paid a portion of the listing Realtor’s commission when we get you the house.
