Be advised that there is no “right” time to purchase a Craftsman-style in 22180 in Fairfax County.
If you find the ideal residence in Fairfax County now, don’t risk losing it because you’re trying to guess where the housing market in 22180 is going. Factors like market price and interest rate usually don’t change fast enough to make a difference in an individual home’s price in Vienna. A larger factor is the property itself. Each property, each home is unique. So, property that you miss out on today, might never be on the market again.
It doesn’t matter what other people like.
A bit of encouragement is helpful, but who is ultimately going to pay the mortgage and live in the home? Give the most weight to your own needs and wants.
There is no such thing as a perfect house.
There are many examples of compromises that buyers have to make every day. Consider a few of these possibilities. If it’s in the right location, the yard may be a bit smaller than you had hoped. The living room may be perfect, but the bathroom needs an update. I can help you sort out your priorities, and focus on properties in Vienna 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.Negotiation is definitely a part of the real estate process, but trying to “win” by getting an extra-low price or refusing to budge may cost you the home you love.
When you’re buying a house, 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:
- walking/jogging paths
- community activities
Get ready today for tomorrow.
Don’t wait until you’ve found a home to:
- to get approved for a mortgage
- think about title companies
- learn more about home inspections
- figure your budget
