When you’re thinking about purchasing a house like 3809 Westgate Dr in Alexandria, should you as a buyer pause to consider the Golden Rule?

We’re all familiar with the Golden Rule: “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” I try to live by this maxim. But how does that apply to a seller when you’re buying real estate? It doesn’t mean that you need to buy a home in Baileys Crossroads when you want a home in Alexandria. It doesn’t mean you can’t aggressively pursue your best possible deal. But it does mean that:

We never want to argue or yell. If there is no possibility for agreement, it’s time to move on—without hurt feelings. We never make promises we don’t intend to keep.
