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.”

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).

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.

Home maintenance: your fall to-do list

Regular maintenance on your home gives you peace of mind and keeps your resale value strong. Putting some energy into seasonal and biannual tasks now will set you up well for holiday entertaining.

Here are 9 items to include on your fall to-do list:

Clean the gutters: Clear out any leaves and debris, and ensure your downspouts are draining properly. This will help prevent wood rot, keep away pests and prolong the life of your gutters.

Check smoke/carbon monoxide detectors: It’s recommended to do this each spring and fall, so give them a test and replace batteries if needed.

Inspect and clean the dryer vent: It’s recommended that you have your dryer vent checked once each year. Excessive lint buildup can pose a dangerous threat of fire.

Clean the chimney: Whether you have a wood-burning fireplace or gas logs, hire a professional to inspect and clean your chimney once a year.

Service your HVAC: Call a professional to service your HVAC components to see if everything is running efficiently. Make sure to change your air filter and test your thermostat as well.

Deep clean indoors: Polish wood floors, scrub down cabinets, vacuum hard-to-reach spaces, wipe down the fridge, dust ceiling fans, etc. This will make hosting easier with the busy entertaining season quickly approaching.

Spruce up the yard: Rake leaves, prune back bushes and trim any trees that are getting too close to power lines or the roof. This will promote healthy growth and protect your property from falling branches.

Inspect windows and doors: Check for drafts and re-caulk or add weatherstripping where needed.

Reseed/fertilize the grass: Lawn-and-garden experts recommend fertilizing in the fall and spring, and fall temperatures are ideal for helping cool-season grasses
take root.

I hope this little list helps you prepare for Winter. If you need professional real estate help, please call, email, or text anytime.
