Alan Clerinx
Buying real estate in Springfield is plausibly the biggest and most complex investment most residents of Fairfax County will ever make. As a trusted real estate specialist, I am a buyer’s defender who understands the informational and emotional support that home buyers need during the process of shopping for and buying a home.

As Realtor with extensive real estate know-how about Fairfax County, I have what it takes to guide buyers in 22153 through the windfalls and pitfalls which can come up during your house purchase. I’m Alan Clerinx and I am ready to help you purchase a home like 9014 Maritime Ct in Lakewood Hills. We don’t charge buyers a commission or fee and if I represent you, I’ll rebate you $3,725 at settlement. [rebate terms and conditions]

$649,500: 9014 Maritime Ct, Springfield, VA 22153

|| Beds: 5 || Baths: 3 || Half-Baths: 0 || Living Area: 1,554 || Days On Market: 1 ||
|| Lakewood Hills || Buyer’s Rebate From Nesbitt Realty: $3,725 || MLS: FX10105793

if you want to buy a home like this, here’s where you start:

    1. Be ready to act quickly. This is because when you see the home you want you don’t want to miss out because you weren’t ready. I can show you how to make yourself ready.
    2. Find a trusted partner. I say that even if you don’t choose me. It’s incredibly important to find a Realtor in Fairfax County who understands you and your needs.
    3. Make a good offer. Remember that your offer is very unlikely to be the only one on the table. Do what you can to ensure it’s appealing to a seller.
    4. It’s a good idea to think about maintenance and repair costs into your buying budget. You don’t want to be “house-poor” and unable to maintain your home because your budget is so tight.
    5. Plan ahead. It’s easy to get wrapped up in your present needs, but you should also think about reselling the home before you buy.
    6. It’s up to you to decide what’s important in your home. For example:
      • Do you need a certain minimum square-footage? The listing agent reports that 9014 Maritime Ct is 1,554.
      • Do you want a “green” home? Do you care about the heating or cooling systems?
      • Do you care about the roof? Do you know about the roof?

When you need a Realtor in Fairfax County,  call me, Alan Clerinx. I will help you get the home you want on a budget you can afford.
