Be advised that there is no “right” time to buy a home in Burke.
If you find the right 3-bedroom townhouse today, don’t risk losing it because you think you can predict what the future will be in the Burke housing market! Factors like market price and interest rate usually don’t change fast enough to make a difference in an individual home’s price in Burke. Much more important than macro-economic factors, is the actual real estate involved. Every single property in Fairfax County is unique. So, a home for sale today, might not be available when the market changes.
The important opinion is your opinion.
It’s natural to want reassurance for such a big decision, but divergent ideas might not be compatible in an actual home purchase. Focus on the wants and needs of the people who will actually be living in this townhouse.
Accept that there is no perfect townhouse.
There are many examples of compromises that buyers have to make every day. Consider a few of these possibilities. The commute is perfect, but the nearby shops and restaurants aren’t what you hoped for.If it’s in the right location, the yard may be a bit smaller than you had hoped. I’ll help you to make a list of priorities, and focus on properties in Burke that fit your specified criteria.
Be prepared to haggle, but don’t expect someone to give away real estate.
We have a very efficient real estate market in Fairfax County and most homes will trade for about what they are worth. There are very few properties that sell for more or less than the appraised value. Burke is filled with sellers who are well-educated, intelligent and they have access to loads of information.
When you’re buying a townhouse, you’re buying a neighborhood.
Don’t get completely enamored by the physical aspects of a home to the point that you forget about important issues such as:
- proximity to shopping
- metro accessibility
Before you looking for homes, you’ll want to:
- think about title companies
- select a Realtor
- investigate insurance
- consider a moving schedule
