Sometimes owning a home is a dream come true. Sometimes that dream can go wrong or your life can change and suddenly owning a home doesn’t fit with where you need to be in life. Summit Development understands that homeownership is complex and not all variables are under your control. Sometimes, you just don’t have the luxury to spend the time and money it would require to get top dollar for your home on the MLS. Sometimes, you need to focus your energy elsewhere or simply move to a new part of the state or country for a work or family-related obligation.There are other options and you may be able to sell your house for cash.
Whatever the reason, if you find yourself in a situation where selling your Vancouver house quickly is more important than getting top dollar, Summit Development makes fair, no-cost, no-obligation offers on any property. So even if you decide to sell to someone else, it’s worth your time to learn what we’d offer.

Things to Keep in Mind When Looking to Sell Your House Quickly
Selling something as big as a home can be intimidating. Simply put, it’s not easy to sell a home for top dollar on the MLS or everyone would ditch their job to become a real estate agent. While we can’t cover everything, we want to go over a few basic tips to help you make the right decision when selling your house in Vancouver or the Tri-Cities, Washington.
Selling your house for cash isn’t like listing on the MLS, so there is no pressure to take the first offer you receive
When you spend the time and money to put your house in top condition and list in on the MLS, several factors determine the value of your home in the current market. In most cases, this means the first offer you receive is likely your best and should try to work with that buyer before walking away prematurely.
When selling for cash, the situation is different. Instead of needing to take the first offer you see, you need to look into who you are dealing with and ensure their offer is fair. Some big things to look out for:
- Is there any cost or obligation to receive an offer on your property?
- How quickly can they make a decision and get you an offer?
- How long will it take you to get your money? Are they using an outside bank or investor to finance the deal? If so, this will slow down the time it takes to get you your money and could cause other potential issues.
There is no replacement for doing your own legwork to learn your local market
You want to get an idea for yourself of how long the houses in your neighborhood typically take to sell. If they are moving quickly, perhaps you can get top dollar right away. If not, you may want to think about selling to someone who can pay cash quickly. It really is about what you want and how long you are willing to wait to get it.
The more you know about comparable house sales in your area, the better off you are no matter how you eventually decide to sell your house.
Objectively Assess the Current State of Your Property
One of the biggest issues of deciding to pursue top dollar buyers with a real estate agent is often the current state of your house. Simply put, the worse things are, the longer it will take to get your house into the condition it needs to be in order to sell.
The good news is that Summit Development buys houses as-is. That’s right. It doesn’t matter if it needs appliances replaced or major repairs. We buy houses that need work all the time. So if you think your house is in such a bad state that you could never sell it to anyone, give us a call and we can talk about your options.
