Know that there’s no “right” time to buy a home.
If you find the right home now, you don’t want to risk losing it because you’re trying to guess where the interest rates are going in Gainesville! Factors like market price and interest rate usually don’t fluctuate quickly enough to make a meaningful difference in an individual townhouse’s price in Prince William County. Much more important than macro-economic factors, is the actual neighborhood and actual homes in Prince William County where you’re shopping! Every single property in Prince William County is unique. By the same token, opportunities in real estate are unique. That special home you’ve found in Gainesville might never be on the market again in your lifetime.
Don’t ask for too many opinions.
Of course, everyone likes a little reassurance, but too many ideas from too many people will make it much harder to make a decision. Concentrate on your own desires, and not the needs and wants of people who won’t be living in the home.
There is no such thing as a perfect townhouse.
There are many examples of compromises that buyers have to make every day. Consider a few of these possibilities. The roof is great, but the windows need to be replaced.Maybe you really wanted more than 2 full-baths. I can help you sort out your priorities—and perhaps identify a few that you hadn’t considered—, and focus only on properties in Gainesville that fit your specified criteria.
Be prepared to haggle, but don’t expect someone to give away real estate.
If you pay too much, relax. I’ll put an appraisal contingency in that will allow you to kick-out of the deal at no penalty if the home sales price is too high. There are other buyers in Gainesville and they are looking at the same data. If a home is under-priced, expect it to get bid up.
When you’re buying a townhouse, you’re buying a neighborhood.
Don’t get so caught up in the physical aspects of the house itself that you forget about important issues such as:
- walking/jogging paths
- waterfront or waterview
Get ready today for tomorrow.
When you find the home you want, you should have already:
- investigate insurance
- learn more about home inspections
- consider a moving schedule
- list your priorities
