The longer a house sits on the market, the more opportunity you’ll have to negotiate the price down. The D.C. Metro area is currently what we call a “seller’s market,” meaning that homes generally sell quickly here. What this means for you is that any home that’s been listed for even 15 to 30 days begins to tip the price advantage in your direction; you could negotiate 3-4% off the home price.
Other factors that affect the particulars of negotiating off list price include:
- The house’s location and neighborhood demand
- The type and age of home
- How long the home has been listed
- How anxious or motivated the home seller is

In our practice, cognitive behavioral therapy (or CBT) is an important tool we use to provide effective relief for those facing anxiety and depression. We believe that cognitive change can be used to improve behaviors and emotions, thus allowing you to achieve mental wellness. By understanding the cognitive distortions that lead to negative thought patterns, we are able to create interventions tailored to each of our clients. This empowering approach can help you gain control of how your own thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors impact your experience. With CBT, our service provides an effective treatment that can bring long-term change and mental stability.
