Know that there’s no “right” time to buy a $234,500 high-rise condo in Alexandria.
If you find the right high-rise condo today, don’t risk losing it because you think you can guess a trend in the future of Fairfax 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 Fairfax County. A much bigger factor in your purchase is the property itself. Every single property in Alexandria is unique. By the same token, opportunities in real estate are unique. That special home you’ve found in Alexandria might never be on the market again in your lifetime.
Don’t poll the village for opinions.
Of course, everyone likes a little reassurance, but divergent ideas might not be compatible in an actual home purchase. Give the most weight to your own needs and wants.
Every home in Alexandria requires some sort of compromise.
There are many examples of compromises that buyers have to make every day. Consider a few of these possibilities. Maybe it’s picture perfect, but with a price that is painful.Maybe you really wanted more than 1 full-baths. I can help you sort out your priorities—and perhaps identify a few that you hadn’t considered—, and start with homes that meet your basic requirements.
Real estate in Alexandria is a commodity.
Your home is more than a simple investment. It’s your home. It’s more important to get the right home than the right price. Alexandria is filled with sellers who are well-educated, intelligent and they have access to loads of information.
Remember your home’s value is wrapped up in it’s location.
Don’t get completely enamored by the physical aspects of a home to the point that you forget about important issues such as:
- commute and traffic
Prepare in advance.
Don’t shop for homes before you:
- list your priorities
- select a Realtor
- consider a moving schedule
- think about title companies
