Compliments of Philip Triem, Keller Williams Portland Central
For most of us, the investment we make in our homes is our biggest single investment.
Recently I’ve been involved in several conversations with friends and customers who have watched with great personal interest as home values were caught up in the rollercoaster ride of the recession. Lately headlines and pundits have begun speculating that the ride is over. Rumors that the market has started to stabilize and recover has people starting to ask, “What does this mean to me?”
Unlike other investments, we don’t get a quarterly statement detailing the current value of our home (and from a professional perspective, I hope no one I know relies on online real estate sites like Zillow to track value trends.) Next month we will all receive a property tax statement telling us how much a tax assessor values our property and how much that opinion means we will pay in taxes – but that still doesn’t reflect the changes in values that I track and observe in my work.
I want you to think of me as your personal real estate value consultant. If you are curious about what is happening with property values in your neighborhood, I want to provide you with current market statistics. I can help you understand how changes in the real estate market impact your investment.
Call me now and get a picture your true market value BEFORE you get your tax bill at the end of October.
