There has been a lot of great advice provided to you. In summary you and your husband will want to begin with the three following items, if you have not already done so:
1. Explore and determine the reasons why you and your husband are wanting to sell (you have indicated that you want a larger home) ; THEN, Interview three Realtors, that are Neighborhood Specialist, not just a Realtor, but ones that know the market, know your specific area, and will provide you with a realistic and honest marketing plan that meets you and your husbands expectations. You are hiring the agent, the agent is not hiring you.
2. Explore what type of home you are wanting to move to. This will help you determine if now is the right time for you personally to sell and buy. The Realtor you hire can assist you with this process.
3. After the hire and the exploring, Sell, Buy, or Wait
This is just the beginning steps of a successful Real Estate Transaction.
Good Luck, whatever your decision may be. I have included a Market Insider Report to provide you with general Market information for your specific area. http://www.buysaleva.com/mimarket/zip/22193/ If you should have any questions, please do not hesitate to CALL, TEXT 703.596.2035 | email or visit my website.

The PROCEDURE is SIMPLE!!
First of all it is absolutely a GREAT time to upgrade mainly for two reasons:
â€¢ Interest rates are fairly low
â€¢ Home prices are on a steady incline which is a very positive sign.
As home sellers and also buyers you and your husband need to be in charge of the decision to choose the right RealtorÂ® for your real estate needs. I would highly recommend interviewing 2-3 different agents to see who can best evaluate the condition of your current home and compare it with other SOLD properties and provide you with a comprehensive market analysis of Active/Sold/Under Contract listings - plus guide you through the â€˜sellingâ€™ and â€˜buying a new homeâ€™ process so you can have stress free transactions!!
It is not unusual for homeowners to sell their current home and buy a new one and there are many options you can choose from. The best thing to do is to get together with a few RealtorsÂ® and see which option you would like to choose.
If you go that route, please give me the opportunity to be interviewed as well as I would be extremely happy to sit with you to understand your real estate goals and the key points you would like to focus on.

This is a great time to sell a small home and purchase a larger one. Once the market value is determined for the home you own, it can be placed on the market FOR SALE. We can look for a larger one while the first one is for sale. Once you get a contract on the smaller home, you can go ahead and contract for the new one. The settlements can be coinciding, enabling it to be a smooth transition from one home to the other.
Please give me a call so we can work out the details.

The first step is getting together to do a consultation to best advise you. After doing an analysis and going over the marketing, we can decide whether or not we want to work together. Let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks!
It would be wise to sell your existing home before buying the new one Unless you purchase your new home contingency on the sale of your current. I will be delighted to discuss the many options available to you. Please contact Emma Artis Long and Foster 793:201-6695 or Emma.artis@LNF.com
