For any number of reasons, homeowners in the state of Washington have found themselves in situations where they need to sell their home suddenly. That is, where their need to sell quickly outweighs their need to sell for top dollar. This happens all the time for more reasons than you might think: you get a job promotion and have to move out of state, your family has unexpectedly grown larger or smaller and your current house no longer fits your lifestyle and needs, or simply the house has become too much of a hassle and you just want to be free.

Let’s break it down and consider the best ways you could sell your house in Washington state quickly for cash. Is it listing it on the MLS with a real estate agent, putting it online as an FSBO, or selling it to a real estate company like Summit Development? We believe the answer is different for every owner, depending on their unique situation and the property in question. The only way to know for sure is to consider all your options thoughtfully as we do below.

Different Options for Selling Your House in Washington State


Listing your house on the local MLS with a real estate agent

Pros: This will allow you to get top dollar for your house.

Cons: This is the most uncertain, lengthy, and can potentially be a costly option available to you.

When it comes down to it, most houses take 6 months or longer to sell on the MLS. Before they do, many hours and much money must be invested in order to attract the kind of buyers willing to pay top dollar. The more competitive your neighborhood/area, the higher the costs.

If you have time and money, you should definitely look into this option as it will likely give you the strongest ROI. However, if you are here reading this article, you probably already understand that and are looking for something quicker that is still going to give you a fair price. One such option is to list your house as an FSBO.

Listing your house in Vancouver or Tri-Cities, Washington as an FSBO (For Sale By Owner)

PROS: Save on many of the costs of listing on the MLS while still getting high exposure by using popular online real estate websites

CONS: Just like with a realtor, the process can take longer than 6 months. Furthermore, you’ll not be able to save on costs of repairs and updates as these will still be needed in order to attract buyers.

There are tons of sites these days that allow you to list your house yourself online, so this is a legitimate option these days when it would have been unthinkable a few years ago. One great piece of advice is to invest in your photos as these will be the deciding factor in most the online shoppers who look at your home. A little more spent here on staging and getting a professional who understands how to light and angle the shots will go a long way in generating interest online.

Sell to Summit Development or a Similar Real Estate Company

PROS: There is no quicker way to sell your home. You can have an offer in 48 hours and get cash in hand as quickly as 7 days later – no matter what condition your home is in. If you want to be free of the property, this is your quickest and easiest option. No repairs. No hidden fees. No long waits.

CONS: You will not get as much for your home as you would with either of the other options. Some real estate companies are very high pressure and not pleasant to deal with.
