More than Just Appraisals in Tualatin, OR
October 21st, 2013 5:45 PM

This past weekend, A Quality Appraisal was doing more than just real estate appraisals in Tualatin, Oregon. Over the summer, I grew two giant pumpkins and entered them in the City of Tualatin, 10th Annual West Coast Giant Pumpkin Regatta.

The regatta is a crazy annual rowing race of pumpkins weighing around 600 pounds and up to more than 1,000 pounds that have been carved into boats. My race came down to a photo finish for 4th place between Mayor Lou Ogden of Tualatin and myself.

Before the race, the pumpkins are weighed. It is a good thing I am better at estimating the value of homes than the weight of pumpkins. I estimated the weight of my first pumpkin to be 650 pounds (the one I rowed in the race) and it turned out to be 827.5 pounds. My second pumpkin, I estimated at 850 pounds and it turned out to be 994 pounds. I think that my problem is I’m too used to measuring square houses and collecting and analyzing the data myself, rather than simply looking up numbers on a chart. I will stick to home valuation.
