If the appraisal comes in higher than the purchase price then the extra profit will go to YOU the seller. For more information and details give me a call at (800) 215-0211.

Commissions are by law negotiable and each agent or company can determine what they feel their services are worth and what you get for those services. There are various business models out there, some flat fee listings, some list your home on the local MLS and do little else. Some will charge less than others and could be a good choice, but you never know until you receive their services.
I can't tell you what to pay, I can tell you that the best agents earn more than whatever they charge and the worst ones cost you more than just a commission. I encourage people to focus on the best available agent and let the commission be a secondary matter. If the best agent charges less then another, good for you. If all the agent has to offer is a low commission fee, wonder how they stay in business when others charge so much more?

I think it is important that you LIKE your Realtor. You will have to have many discussions with him or her and will be spending time on very important decisions so having a good connection works well in your favor to come to a good, fair and win/win outcome.

If you are selling, find a Realtor who can sell a house in a short period of time. If they do it on line, at open houses, marketing to other matter how they do it, just so they do. They should have proof of past listings sold. If you are buying you need a Realtor who is tenacious, jumps hoops and knows the area.

Full time and experienced.

You have a few options:
1) If you do not need the proceeds of the condo sale, you may put in an offer for the TH without any contingencies
2) Put in an offer with a contingency stating you cannot close until your condo sales; if you have it listed with an agent already, this will give the seller and their agent confidence that it will sell (if it is priced right for the condition). If you're selling on your own, it will be hard for the seller and their agent to have confidence you will come through in the end.
3) Wait until your condo sells and hope the other TH is still available.

Only you can decide which method you are most comfortable with. Good luck regardless what you do!

Unfortunately Trulia is an agent only platform at this time. All listings must be listed through a broker.

Hi Michelle,

You may be aware that we have a sellers' market right now in many parts of Northern Virginia, and especially at price points below 750K.

For the last 60 days the median Days on Market (DOM) for 20148 single family homes is an exceptionally low 13 days.

I actually have buyers whose preference it would be to make a decision on a SFH in 20148 sooner rather than later. If you could email me a few more details of your home (assuming it's a single family) or your address even, that would be super.

Regardless of your home type, I would gladly sit down and meet with you to discuss the strategic marketing, timing and sale of your home at a date and time that works for you.

All my best,

Hi Courtney,

You are right, over the last year the homes inventury has shrunken. However, there are still several homes out there. If you could give me more criteria as to what you are looking for as far as bedrooms, baths, square feet, and price range I would be more than happy to provide you with some listings.

Do you understand the nature of a CONTRACT?
Maybe you should talk to an Attorney, (Realtors do not give LEGAL advice).

Hi Bethany, agents don't usually list their property directly on Trulia. They list in the MLS, then it automatically uploads to Trulia. If you're interested in listing your townhouse for sale, I'd give you excellent and great value service. Give me call or email: 202-591-6837 ... more

Not that I have seen. But there may be some select cases where the county doesn't have all of the correct property information.... Finished rooms, garages, etc.

Jamie Skojec answered:
Typically it is a 30 day written notice to vacate (Notice to Quit) But typically this is for contractual issues. You should look to your lease agreement to be certain that is what is in place. If you're wanting to list sooner rather than wait till the lease is up, maybe you can talk to your tenant about agreeing to cancel the lease agreement early.

Hope this helps!

I am a local RE Broker in the Woodbridge area. If you'd like to speak to someone and go over your options and / or need some assistance listing your home, and helping your tenant find a new property I'd be happy to assist you both with some of your options so you can make the right decision for your situation.

Feel free to contact me anytime for a no obligation consult!
