Portland Condos – Selling your Portland condo

Portland Condos. Selling your condo in Portland Oregon? Thinking about selling your condo in Portland? There are many factors into selling your condo. Here is a youtube video with some ideas!

One of the first things we would do is research a comparative market analysis of your Portland condo. We would look for sold comps within the last few months preferable in your building. If there no recent sales, then we can expand our search to the neighborhood such as the Pearl District or Downtown Portland. Once we find three sold Portland condos similar to yours we would start to minus and plus the differences. Some of those would include square footage, location in the building, view and amenities.
In regards to the square footage some will generalize and say for example the Pearl District is around $500 per square foot and use that as a basis. Or take the three condos and see what they are per square foot and figure yours out comparatively. Although this is a good generalization there are many other factors involved that could affect your Portland Oregon condo value.
The location in the building is very important. What level are you located on? Is your unit or the comparable condos a corner unit or perhaps an inside unit such as we have in the Marshall-Wells Lofts and the Avenue. There are some other semi-courtyard units such as in Riverstone, Tannerplace and Park Place.
Does your condo or the sold Portland condos have a view? Many of our condos here in Portland have a view of the mountains such as in the Metropolitan and Cosmopolitan in the Pearl District. Some have a city view especially if your condo is on the south side of the building in the Pearl District. Many of the Portland condos in South Waterfront have a view of the River and even some of a view of the river and city which would increase the value.
We would also consider the amenities and upgrades each condo has. Does your condo or any of the sold Portland condos have 2 bathrooms? Parking? Was the condo a penthouse condo with upgrades or have the condo been upgraded over the years. Does your Portland condo or the comps have an deck or terrace?
These are just a few factors to consider to working out a fair market value for your Portland Condo.
Once we figure out a good market price we would go into the marketing phase of your condo in Portland Oregon. One of the first things we would do is to hire a professional photographer for great photos of your condo. This is very important we would upload these photos into the RMLS system which goes out to over 10,000 brokers. Many of these brokers may already have searches set up for their clients who are waiting for a condo just like yours to come on the market. In addition, we create a personal website for your condo plus post it on our website Portlandscondos.com. From here it goes out to many social medias such as Facebook, Zillow, linkin, google, twitter, etc. It is very important to have a great presence on the interest as over 90% of buyers start their search on the internet!
We also send out eflyers, upload to Zillow etc to help keep your condo listing in the realtors and public eye.
Once we receive an offer we then work through the negotiation process. As been in real estate for almost 30 years have seen many sales agreements. We can look at the pros and cons of the offer to determine if it is acceptable or should we counter. Once we have an accepted offer we then go through the escrow process including home inspections, condo HOA documents review, financing and all the other things that come up during this process. Again, as have seen so many transaction am there to help you navigate through all this with as little as stress as possible to get to a successful closing!
These are just a few highlights in selling your condo in Portland Oregon. If you are interested in a general idea of your Portland condo worth just fill out the seller CMA page and can send you make an “informal” comparative market analysis. If you would like a more detail just let me know and we can work out a good time to visit your condo… and of course if you would like to put your condo on the market would be happy to help you in any way I can!

What is your Portland Condo worth? Portland condos

What is your Portland Condo worth?  Thinking about selling your condo in Portland or just curious as to the value your condo is today?  There are many factors to consider… here are just a few.

One of the first things to start the process of finding the value of condos is to put together a CMA (comparable market analysis).  We look for three comparable Portland condos that have sold within the last few months preferably in your condo building.  If not in your condo building definitely close by in the same neighborhood such as the Pearl District.

Next, we would compare your Portland Condo with the three comparable condos we find closest to yours.  Some of the factors we look at is square footage and location in the condo building.  What floor is it on, is it a penthouse or a corner condo.  Is the condo in Portland Oregon an inside condo or outside?  Some of our condo buildings have a courtyard in the middle such as The Avenue Lofts and Marshall Well Lofts condos.  How does your Portland condo compare in view and sun exposure?  Many of our condos here in Portland Oregon have wonderful views of the river, mountains or of the city.  Does your Portland condo have one or two parking spaces?  Storage unit?  What kind of upgrades?  Stainless appliances, wood floors, granite, etc.  Does it have a patio or terrace?

Square footage is also an important aspect but not the only one as you can see.  Some will estimate per square such as $500 per square foot in the Pearl District.  This changes and also is variable as you can see there are many factors that determine value so one would not want to base their Portland condo value on square footage price alone.

These are just a few things but as we compare your condo we look at the pluses and minuses to determine an estimated value of your condo in Portland Oregon.

If you are interested in market analysis or just want an informal estimate of your Portland condo worth please just send me an email, call or contact me through my website PortlandsCondos.com.

Portland condos for sale – HOA Dues

Portland Condos.  What about those HOA dues with our condos in Portland Oregon?

Below is a YouTube video talking a bit about HOA dues with condos in Portland.  How they are determined for the building and for your Portland condo.

Portland condos for sale.  HOA monthly dues for our condos in Portland Oregon consist of what it cost to maintain the condo building.  There are monthly expenses such as water, sewer, garbage and exterior maintenance.  Also included are the yearly expenses such as property taxes for the common area and insurance.  Windows are also typically washed twice a year with most of our Portland Oregon condo buildings.  One of the other main factors is the reserves.  Reserves is similar to a savings account to cover long term repairs and upgrades such as a roof repair.  Reserves for most of our condos is determine by a reserve study which is done every so many years as to keep the projected cost current.  As a condo owner, you want to make sure there is enough funds in the condo building’s reserve account to cover these long term expenses as to prevent special assessments.

Your condo building amenities and building itself can also contribute cost needed to be included in your HOA dues.  Such as perhaps an older building might need some upgrades sooner so the reserves might be a bit higher.  If your condo building has amenities such as concierge service this too can add to the monthly dues as the concierge needs to be paid.  Many of our Portland condos buildings have concierge service which is really nice such as in the 937 Condo building, Park Place Condos, Metropolitan condos, Cosmopolitan condos, Casey Condos, Elizabeth Loft condos and the Henry Condominiums in the Pearl District.  In Northwest Portland, The Westerly has concerige service.  South Waterfront all three condo buildings have concierge service including the John Ross Condos, Atwater Condos and the Meriwether.  In Downtown Portland, The Eliot Condominiums also have concierge service.  Another factor that could affect your condo dues is amenities such as swimming pools and gyms.  In Downtown Portland we have the American Plaza Tower condominiums which has two swimming pools or in the Legends condos in Goose Hollow that has many amenities such as a theater room, etc.  These amenities add a little bit to the monthly HOA dues as to cover the cost of being maintained.

With your personal condos month HOA dues for your Portland condo it is determined by your square footage of your condo.  It does not matter what floor you are on… whether a lower unit or a penthouse it is determined by the square foot.  The square foot of your condo is the percentage ownership you have in the common area. Also if you have a deck this could add a bit to your personal condo HOA dues as they also need to be maintained.

These are just a few things about Portland’s condos HOA dues.  If you have questions please send me an email, text, call or contact me through my contact page of my website PortlandsCondos.com.

Portland Condos- Buying a condo in Portland Oregon You tube

Buying Portland CondoPortland Condos.  Buying a condo  in Portland Oregon You Tube.  Looking to purchase a condo in Portland Oregon?  Here are some suggestions to consider while thinking about your new condo in Portland!

Buying a condo in Portland Oregon has some things to consider.  One of the first things to decide is the neighborhood you would like to purchase a condo.  We have some great Portland condo neighborhoods including the Pearl District, Northwest Nob Hill, Downtown Portland, South Waterfront and some nice condo buildings close in on the east side.  If being close to public transportation is important might want to consider a neighborhood or building close to the Max line or Portland Streetcar.  Perhaps you would like to be close to the theater, boutiques, coffee shops, restaurants or one of our wonderful parks.

Another thing to consider is the size of the condo you would like to have.  Many of our condos here in Portland are one bedrooms.  We do have several studios and two bedrooms but our most common condo is a one bedroom.  Many of my clients would like a two bedrooms so I suggest they consider a one bedroom with a den that could be used as a second bedroom as we have many condos with this type of floor plan.

The location of the condo for sun exposure and view is also an important consideration.  If your condo is located on the east side of the building you may have morning sun and a view of the mountains.  On the west side of Portland condos, you might see the sunset and or have a view of the west hills.  In the Pearl District if your condo is located on the south side might have a view of Downtown Portland such as in The Henry Condos, The Elizabeth Lofts, Metropolitan condos and the new Cosmopolitan condos have several condos with a great view our city skyline. If a river view is something you would like we have many wonderful condo buildings with a view of the Willamette River.  Some of those condos in Portland Oregon are Riverscape condos, Pacifica condos, Waterfront Pearl condos, The Strand and in South Waterfront the Atwater Condos and the Meriwether condos.

Perhaps you have a pet.  As we have many great parks in our condo neighborhoods such as Tannersprings, Jamison Square and the fields park in the Pearl District.  In Downtown Portland, we have South Blocks park.  Over in Northwest Nob Hill Portland there are some smaller parks plus our large urban Forest Park with great trails for hiking with your pet.

The other think to consider is if you are planning on renting out your new condo in Portland Oregon.  Many of my clients are wanting to purchase now then perhaps in a few years when they are ready will move in.  In the meantime, they would like to rent out their condo.  Or maybe you are an investor and would like to rent out your condo.  As most of our Portland condo buildings have bylaws with a 25 to 30% rental cap during the process if there is a building or condo you are interested in we can check  with the property management as to where the building currently is with their rental percentage.

These are just a few things to consider.  If you have questions or like to view any properties please reach out to me via email, phone or through my contact page on PortlandsCondos.com.
