Even in a hot housing market such as that in DC, it can take weeks to months to sell your home. Factors such as the time of year, location in of your property, and the listing price can all influence how much time it takes. At Houses for Healers, we understand that as a busy healthcare provider, you don’t have the time to commit to the selling process and just need it sold while you tend to healing. For the medical professional, time is a scarce commodity that can make the task of selling a home seem insurmountable. That is where we come in!

At Houses For Healers, our sole mission is to give back to those who dedicate their lives to the medical profession by bundling comprehensive real estate services to buy or sell your home in the DC and Virginia area. Join us in today’s post where we will discuss the time it takes to sell your home and how Houses For Healers can save this time for you.


Before your house can even go on the market, it will have to be readied. Even if your home is in pristine condition, there are a few things you’ll need to do to ensure that you can list for a fair selling price and potentially make money. You’ll want to have the lawn manicured and external paint and roof inspected and touched up, if necessary. Inside, you’ll need to patch any flaws and make any repairs or updates that you’ve been putting off for the sake of time.

At Houses For Healers, we don’t staff the crew to do these things, but we can certainly oversee the projects and have contractors we partner with provide these services. That way, you don’t have to complete the tasks yourself or take the time to find a reliable contractor near you that can do it for you.


It should be simple, right? Put a sign in your front yard and let the calls flood in! Unfortunately, the home listing process isn’t quite that quick and easy, yet. You’ll need to settle on a listing price and collect all the information and plot plans to give potential buyers the most information possible. You’ll need to clean and photograph your home and post the photos and information into the multiple listing system (MLS) to have it reach real estate agents and potential buyers. Once it is listed, now it is time to show your home! You could schedule individual showings or open houses, or you could leave a lockbox on your door and leave it in the hands of the potential buyer’s real estate agents.

At Houses For Healers, we have a talented team of photographers and home stagers that can help, as well as a top-notch team of real estate agents who can create and distribute your listing. Since our team also helps healthcare providers purchase homes, we can get your listing to fellow medical professionals looking to purchase before it hits the general market! And, we can schedule and manage showings, open houses, and work with buyer’s real estate agents so that you don’t have to.

Contracts to Closing

Once a buyer decides they want to purchase your home, you will enter the contract phase. Most of this timeframe is in the hands of the buyer and the buyer’s real estate agency. However, there are some things that you will be responsible for, such as getting inspections and making requested repairs. You may also be contacted regularly via phone or email to discuss the process throughout your day.

At Houses for Healers, we can handle all of this for you. Of course, you will have to be present for some things, but we can help to significantly reduce the burden of time and stress that selling your home takes. We can function as your personal home-selling team to reduce the amount of legwork you have to do and so that you don’t have to be attached to your phone or email to get it all done. Get back to your patients and we will keep you updated on your schedule.


Once the closing process is complete and you have successfully sold your home, it will then be moving day! To prepare, you’ll need to pack up everything and then move it out of the home. Afterward, you’ll have to clean and prepare the house for the new owners to move into. While all of this is very exciting, it is also very time-consuming. This is time away from your patients and family.

At Houses For Healers, we have a team of home professionals that can take care of all of the moving tasks for you! How relieving it will be to have someone else pack and move your belongings and then clean the house for its new owners. Our mission is to save as much time, money, and stress as possible for you.

If you are a healthcare provider, we know that you do not have the time to devote to selling your home. For this reason, many medical professionals succumb to a quick-sale buyer to save time, and the cost of severely underpricing the home. You don’t have to sacrifice time or money to sell your home. Let us do the legwork for you. Visit us online to find out how it works and then contact us to get started!
