How to Sell Your House

Use Proven Marketing with Experienced Agents and Teamwork
There are many reasons why people might sell their home. Perhaps they are moving to get closer to work or to relatives. Perhaps it’s for financial reasons, positive or negative. Perhaps it’s to move their kids closer to a certain school. Whatever the reason, we will try to make the process as easy and as quick as possible by using strategies that work.

Selling your home is a big task, but it doesn't have to be difficult.

There are a lot of decisions to make, and getting them right is essential. After all, your home represents a big chunk of your net worth. There will be a lot of paperwork, but with computers and with us as your guide, it will seem like a snap.

House Selling Goals

Before looking at what your home is worth or finding a real estate agent, you must first figure out your needs while selling your house.

  • Are you going to be buying another home?
  • Do you need to sell fast?
  • Do you need the highest price possible?
  • Do you need help with repairs?
  • Do you have to move before the home sells?
  • Are you selling from a different city?

Communicating these needs with your real estate agent will help everyone to make the right decisions and to get the most out of your real estate transaction.

How We Attract Buyers

Not all properties are the same. Each piece of real estate is unique and appeals to a different group of buyers. We use a number of marketing channels to reach the most qualified buyers. It has been reported that 92% of home buyers use the internet during the home-buying process. A home buyer typically searches for 10 weeks and views an average of 10 homes, according to the National Association of REALTORS. We make sure that your listing is online and on the most popular real estate sites. If you want to get the most money from your house, read this home seller’s guide.

Pictures

We take as many pictures as needed to best convey the assets of the home for sale. Some homes also require videos to really show off the features of the property.

Utilizing the latest in Digital Technology, we can make a 3D model of your home! It's like having an open house everyday!

What Others Are Saying

Yipppeee We have recording numbers!!!

It was a true pleasure working with such a wonderfully organized crew. Jim, you are a celebrity in real estate and I am glad I was finally able to work a deal with you! The professionalism and grace you guys display in your work is amazing. Thank you all again!

Jason Clifford / Jim Clifford with Washington Realty deserve a 10!

From start to finish the entire team shined. Where do I start? Top Dollar for my Home $ (much higher than expected) Pre-Market Analysis (nice presentation along with walking the property) Technology for Signing (made signing documents during work hours and on the golf course very easy) Marketing - Signage, Flyers, Pictures, Web, Video ( The video virtual tour is a must.) Schedule Flexibility Referrals to Contractors for Needed / Suggested Repairs (saving me money) Staff (very friendly and fewer points of contacts) Negotiations (I was ready to give away the farm for repairs requested and they were able to negotiate a much more appealing outcome) Time on Market (I am confident due to completing the suggested repairs before listing was why the home sold & closed quickly along with not creating additional inspection request = $ loss) Don't fool yourself with big name realty companies. Washington Realty Group delivers everything and more without a doubt.

Great Company to work for!
