“How do I sell my home?” is a question that many homeowners in Washington State ask every day. There are many reasons they need to sell–perhaps they want to move closer to work or family members, they want to a smaller or larger house, or their house is underwater and selling the home as a short sale will help them to get on better financial footing. Whatever the reason, at Washington Realty Group, we have the agents and the system to get your house sold fast.
Jim Clifford has been working in real estate for over 35 years. Based in Sumner, WA, he has been selling homes in a wide geographic area which extends throughout Pierce County and South King County. For the last 25 years, Jim has built a business selling homes for banks. These are what are known as foreclosures, or bank-owned properties. His experience and knowledge go into every sale, whether it is for the banks or for the private homeowner. He does not shy away from short sales. With every home that Washington Realty Groups agents list each year, there are specialized staff that help the process along, including those who deal with offers, marketing, accounting, and home closers to help complete the sale process. Our real estate agents stay up-to-date on trends in the market, and routinely offer Broker Price Opinions (BPOs) to banks, asset managers and investment companies. The same price opinions go into your private home listings, so that you can rest assured your home is being sold at a competitive price at current market conditions. Are you looking to get a quick idea of what your home is worth in today’s market? We can send you a free comparative home value report.
The area that is most important when selling a home is marketing. Getting your home seen quickly by the people who are looking to buy will help bring you the best price. As you’re thinking of selling your home make sure to read our 7 steps to selling your home guide. We work with multiple-offer situations and asking for the buyers’ highest and best is routine. When the inventory is low things get wild, we have had some homes bring in 20+ offers. Not only do we use traditional print and on-site marketing, but we list the property on numerous real estate sites, social media and classified sites to provide the best exposure for a listing. We use many photos; it has been reported that 90% of buyers will search the Internet first, and while browsing real estate portals, a majority will sort the search results by the number of photos–not price! Our real estate agents also have a list of potential buyers on hand whom they are ready to contact if the right home comes along.
We encourage you to contact one of our agents to talk about your home sale.
