So you have decided to sell your property. Before anything else, it is a good idea to sit down and clarify your motivations and draw up a basic time frame for the selling process.
Why do you want to sell your property? Do you intend to simply find a larger property, or do you plan on moving to another neighborhood, school district, city or state? You might think your reasons are obvious, but it would do well to consider the implications of each option for your lifestyle, opportunities, and finances. Being clear about your intentions for selling will make it easier for us to determine the most appropriate option for your specified financial, lifestyle, and real estate goals.
When Should I Sell?
You should immediately establish your time frame for selling. If you need to sell quickly, we can speed up the process by giving you a complete market analysis and action plan to obtain all of your goals. If there is no pressing need to sell immediately, you can sit down with one of our expert real estate agents to thoroughly review the current market conditions and find the most favorable time to sell.
What Is The Market Like?
When you work with us, you can be sure that you will have our knowledge, expertise and negotiating skills at work for you to arrive at the best market prices and terms. We will keep you up-to-date on what is happening in the marketplace and the price, financing, terms and conditions of competing properties. With us, you will know exactly how to price and when to sell your property.
How Do I Optimize My Finances?
Deciding to sell your property demands a serious consideration of your current financial situation and future possibilities. With the help of our qualified agents, you will be able to effectively assess the cumulative impact of these changes, estimate potential proceeds of selling your property, and plan effective tax savings and estate planning strategies. We will ensure that you not only take control of your finances, but use them to their fullest potential.
Hire a Real Estate Agent
With so much information available online, you may be tempted to sell your home through the Internet without a professional real estate agent. While Googling ‘sell-it-yourself’ articles can offer great tips to get your house in selling shape, they do not provide you the in-depth knowledge, education, and experience that comes with hiring a licensed real estate agent. If you’re a first-time seller, save yourself the anxiety and hire a real estate agent you can trust.
The Jamil Brothers possess intimate market knowledge about your neighborhood that is unavailable to the general public, and can most importantly guide you about the price, type of sale, and condition of local homes that you are up against. As a Northern Virginia native, we can readily speak to potential buyers on the schools, crime or demographics in the area, and help educate buyers on the advantages of buying your home compared to local listings.
Getting in Selling Shape
Preparing your home for listing doesn’t have to be as costly as you think. Simple lawn maintenance and exterior paint touch-ups can do wonders for the overall look of your house. The 3 most important things to remember are to de-clutter, de-personalize, and to de-odorize (especially if you have pets) the inside of your home.

During the Listing Period
Try to be as flexible as possible with potential buyer visits and be away from your home during this time. Saad and Arslan will work with you to come up with a realistic selling price for your home that will deter potential buyers from bidding lower. Be patient, and don’t reject offers too quickly. We will review each offer with you to ensure your final decision is made stress-free with confidence.
