Next, start working with a Realtor that fully comprehends Arlington, Virginia. (You’ll find ideas on this website and elsewhere on selecting a full-time real estate professional, but I’ll tell you right now that I am an whiz on Arlington real estate.) When you work with me, I’ll make a list of your needs and needs in a home. This is a list of those things that you can absolutely not be without. Once this is compiled, then list the things that you would like. With these lists ready, its time to start looking at homes. Your realtor should be able to provide you with a complete list of homes that fit your criteria, and some that come close. Also, they will be able to guide you to properties that fit your pre-approved mortgage amount.

After finding a home or homes that suit you make sure to have a certified inspector take a thorough look through the home. Have them check all questionable areas of the home. Don’t forget to have the inspector check for mold as this is something that is often overlooked. If the home passes the inspection than carry on with the offer if you are so inclined. If it doesn’t then either continue shopping, or utilize the necessary repairs as a bargaining point. Usually you should be able to have the cost of these repairs deducted from the cost of the home. Its a good idea to bring in your own contractor or expert to get these estimates. By doing this you know that everything is above board.

Buying a home is a huge process and one that you must be careful to handle with all due care and attention. Such an important investment can benefit you financially for years to come as well as providing safety and financial security. Don’t sell yourself short on what you buy as your home. After all, your family deserves the best don’t they?
