It can be difficult sometimes in today’s Northern Virginia real estate market to make a profit or simple break even when selling your home. Finding a quality real estate agent in Northern VA to help you get your home ready for sale, market it properly, and prepare all the contracts is the key to a successful home sale.
At Samson Properties, we do all that and more for far less money than most real estate agents. I want to help you sell your home for just 4.5% commission and market it aggressively. Most real estate agents in Northern Virginia charge a standard 6% commission on homes they list. This means that 3% of the sales prices goes to the seller agent and 3% goes to the buyer agent.
When listing your home with Jack Jenkins and Samson Properties, the buyer agent gets 2.5%, but as a seller agent we only receive 2% commission. This allows us the opportunity to give your home maximum exposure to all the agents in Northern VA while saving you thousands of dollars. Check out the chart below to see how much you and can save selling your home with us!
A lower commission rate doesn’t mean that your service will be less. In fact, we will market your home listing aggressively and provide many services that many Northern VA realtors just don’t provide.
The days of paying a Realtor 6% real estate commission are in the past. With the use of the internet, computers, and smartphones selling a home has allowed real estate agents to become more efficient and process transactions much faster.
This means that as a Northern Virginia discount realtor, I am able to pass these savings onto homeowners like you and help you keep more of your home equity.

How The Home Selling Process Will Work
Perform A Competitive Market Analysis
My goal is to help you get the highest selling price for your property. In order to establish the appropriate asking price for your home, I will perform an extensive analysis of the Northern Virginia real estate market and compare your home with similar homes in the area.
The Competitive Market Analysis considers the following: Current comparable home listings, recently sold comparable homes, pending sales on similar homes.
After examining these comparable homes and your home’s special features, we can determine a competitive asking price for your home to get the most offers and best price. Once we have a price set we will follow the below listing timeline.
