Are you ready to sell your Northern Virginia home with Michelle Williams of MMK Realty LLC?
Looking to sell your home in Northern Virginia? We are a local boutique real estate firm in Fairfax, Virginia offering personalized services tailored to your needs. We work with a diverse array of clients from property investors, military families, first-time sellers, long time locals, and much more. Our competitive listing fee starts at 4.5% and all our clients receive top notch service.
The entire home selling process from preparing your home for sale and getting it up on the market to closing entails a lot of hard work and requires a great partnership with an experienced Northern Virginia realtor. Sticking a sign in the yard and posting a home listing to the web won’t guarantee that your home is going to get off the market fast! You need to do much more than that to attract top dollar for your property.
At MMK Realty, we use an aggressive and customized marketing strategy to sell your home—and we go the extra mile with each and every client we work with.
There are some pre-listing activities that will take place including the comparable market analysis (CMA) and establishing your home’s value. Having a knowledgeable Northern Virginia realtor with great market research skills will ensure that your home is priced correctly and that you won’t lose money when selling your home. First impressions matter so we will also perform an exterior “curb appeal assessment” and interior decor assessment.
Once all the initial research has been completed and compiled into a professional presentation, we will meet in person or virtually using a video chat app. During the presentation, you will be given an overview of what to expect during the home selling process, presented with the current market conditions and the CMA results. We will also review all aspects of the curb appeal and interior decor evaluations and suggest any home improvements. Lastly, we will discuss the pricing strategy and discuss your customized home marketing plan.
Getting Your Home Ready to Sell
Before putting your home up for sale, we want to make sure that your home grabs buyers’ attention. We will help you determine which renovations will bring the most value for your home while keeping the costs down. We will also provide you with detailed curb appeal and interior decor assessments. We will discuss curb appeal and staging tips that will make potential buyers interested in your property.
Getting Your Home Up On the Local Market
One of the most important parts of evaluating your property and your needs is how we use that information to create a customized plan that works for you, and get your home sold as quickly as possible for the best price possible. Marketing and selling your home involves an understanding of where the potential buyer comes from and what they might be looking for.
We will start by preparing your home for the MLS by taking exceptional photos and videos of your property. We will also create high quality printed materials which we will mail to our contact list. We will also integrate effective online efforts including virtual tours via digital applications.
Preparing for Closing
Once an Offer-to-Purchase contract has been accepted and signed by you with our guidance, we will ensure that all transactional documents are processed in a timely manner. We’ll also coordinate and review the home inspection and appraisal reports with you. We will make sure the communication between us is up to par and that the complexity of the closing process is made simple for you.

Should I sell my home?
For most home sellers, deciding if selling your home is the right thing to do, ultimately comes down to equity. Equity is the difference between how much your home is currently valued at and how much you have left to pay on your mortgage. Breaking even is not ideal but if the equity on your home covers the rest of your mortgage as well as any agent fees or your next down payment, then you’re in a strong position to sell your current home.
How do I sell my home?
The entire home selling process is complicated and it takes a lot of time and effort. Having a knowledgeable realtor here in Northern Virginia is highly recommended. The agents at MMK Realty are experts in the local real estate community and have strong connections with potential buyers in your area.
What are the seller’s closing costs in Northern Virginia?
Seller’s closing costs are the expenses that occur with the transfer of ownership. These costs can often be negotiated between the buyer and seller and will be included in the sale’s contract.
