Seller Review For Rachel Sheller

“The weeks leading up to my Mothers passing she had told me on several occasions to contact Rachel Sheller and that she would not only sell her house for me but she would make sure that everything would go smoothly. Rachel was listed in my Moms final paperwork after her death naming her as the person she chose to sell her home. Rachel was more then just my Moms Realtor she became some one my Mom trusted and believed in. My Mom placed Rachel in my life for a reason. She not only has alot of knowledge, expertise, skills and responsiveness, she is also kind, honest, and hardworking. She keep me grounded during such a difficult and stressful time. My Mom was right to the end, Rachel took care of me and completed the job my Mom asked for her to do. And I got the sale price I was looking for! Rachel is truely good at what she does but she is also someone you want on your side, and ill cherish the time I spent with her.”

Client Testimonial For Rachel Sheller

“Choosing Rachael to help us find and purchase a home was the right choice!! She helped me sell my home three years ago and was amazing, so when my boyfriend and I decided to look into buying a house I reached out to her knowing we’d be in good hands. Rachael’s integrity and kindness made the  process comfortable, easy, fun, and stress-free as possible. This was very important to and Nels quickly become comfortable with her. She’s a strong negotiator with impressive follow-up skills, trust me – she’s on it like a dog with a bone. On more than one occasion he’d ask “does she ever stop?”. She has a network of professionals she works with to make sure scheduled deadlines are met. It’s evident Rachael has a heart for people, and a passion for making anyone’s realestate dreams come true. Choose Rachael, you’ll be glad you did” -Colette Moore

Thank you Colette. The honor is all mine!

Client Review For Rachel Sheller

“Rachel went above and beyond with the sale of our home. She came over multiple times before our house went on the market, helping us stage and prep our home to sell quickly and what we wanted it to sell for. Her knowledge of the area, buys and sellers, and the market were a tremendous help to us! Rachel made us feel valued and important being responsive to any of our needs prior to going on the market, during the process and with closing on our house. She was always an advocate for us when negotiating with the buyers and gave us her honest advice throughout the whole process. We were so fortunate to have Rachel represent us and help us sell our first home!”

~Jon & Nicole Nelson

HEAR YEA! HEAR YEA! Latest and Greatest Real Estate Stats For The Portland-Metro Market. CHANGE IS HERE!

CHANGE IS HERE! Take a look at the very latest real estate stats for the Portland-Metro areas. The market is slowing a bit because of the time of year (We always see a slow down after school starts), but also because the local market has been and is changing to favor the buyer more.

In Portland-Metro last month pending sales saw the sole gain in the Portland metro area. There were 2,929 pending sales, a 6.1% increase over the 2,760 offers accepted last year at the same time but falling 2.3% short of the 2,998 offers accepted last month.

Closed sales, at 2,901, decreased 2.2% from the 2,967 closings recorded in August 2018 and fell 1.5% short of the 2,944 closings from July 2019.

New listings (3,757) fared similarly, ending 10.8% lower than in August 2018 (4,214) and 5.3% lower than last month in July 2019 (3,966).

Total market time rose by five days in August to end at 48 days. Inventory held steady at 2.3 months.

Average and Median Sale Prices

Comparing 2019 to 2018 through August, the average sale price has increased 1.0% from $454,500 to $458,900. In the same comparison, the median sale price has increased 2.2% from $401,000 to $410,000.

If you have been waiting to sell! Wait no longer! Take a look at the Portland-Metro appreciation values. We are seeing 4 areas with negative appreciation, vs 3 areas last month. the market is starting to slow and show signs of change. Overall, the market is Robust and strong with an overall appreciation of +1%. That is a big change from a year ago, or just 6 months ago.

It’s a GREAT time to buy because prices are leveling off and interest rates are still low. It’s also a good time to sell as there is less competition and the interest rates are low. Interest rates have a strong affect on our market. For more information on buying and/or selling in today’s market, please call, email, or text anytime.
