Most of us have spent time daydreaming about traveling around the world. The idea of packing up our worldly possessions and taking off for a multi-country adventure is incredibly appealing. But how does one find the money to do that? Justin Spradlin got the extra cash by using homezen to sell his condo.
“I bought a condo just outside of DC seven years ago and [had] wanted to sell it for a while. It hadn’t appreciated in value enough for me to pull my money out because, like all sellers, I would have to pay a commission to real estate agents,” said Justin. That wouldn’t leave him with much cash at the end of the transaction.

“This kind of drove me nuts because I thought I could probably sell without an agent, but I was little nervous to take the risk without having knowledgeable support during the process. Then homezen came along. homezen provides expert support and online tools to help homeowners sell their homes, without an agent, at a flat, inexpensive fee.”
homezen helps Washingtonians sell their homes quickly and saves them an average of $20,000 per home sale. Empowered by the for-sale-by-owner platform, Justin priced, prepped and marketed his own home and saved thousands of dollars.
“homezen was there for me whenever I had questions, and they gave me the confidence I needed to sell my own without an agent,” says Justin. With the money he saved using homezen, Justin did pack up his worldly possessions and travelled the world.
