There is no such thing as the “right” time to buy a home.
If you find the right townhouse in Woodbridge today, don’t take the chance of losing out because you think you can guess a trend in the future of Prince William County real estate. Factors like market price and interest rate usually don’t change fast enough to make a difference in an individual home’s price in Woodbridge. Much more important than macro-economic factors, is the actual townhouse you’re looking at. Every property is unique. So, opportunities missed today could be gone forever.
Don’t ask for too many opinions.
It’s nice to have some support when you’re making a big decision, but it’s hard to hear you’re own thoughts, if you’re taking in advice from many people. Focus on the wants and needs of the people who will actually be living in the home.
Accept that there are no perfect houses in Woodbridge.
There are many examples of compromises that buyers have to make every day. Consider a few of these possibilities. You were searching for brick and siding Contemporary homes and the price is less than $465,405 but you don’t want 22191.Maybe it’s close to the Metro but far from the school you want. I can help you sort out your priorities, and start by shopping homes that meet your basic requirements.
You’re buying a home, not a car.
Negotiation is definitely a part of the real estate process, but trying to “win” by getting an extra-low price or refusing to budge may cost you the home you love.Woodbridge is filled with sellers who are well-educated, intelligent and they have access to loads of information.
When you buy a home, you’re buy a community.
Don’t get completely enamored by the physical aspects of a home to the point that you forget about important issues such as:
- how close the neighborhood is to friends and family
- metro accessibility
Make plans now.
Before you shop there are some tasks to take care of. Don’t wait until you’ve found a home to:
- figure your budget
- list your priorities
- think about title companies
- select a Realtor
