Know that there’s no “right” time to buy a 2-bedroom high-rise condo in 22043.
If 2311 Pimmit Dr #705 is the right high-rise condo in Fairfax County for you, you don’t want to miss out because you’re trying to guess where the housing market in Falls Church is going. Outside factors like market price and interest rate usually don’t fluctuate quickly enough to make a significant difference in an individual high-rise condo’s price in Falls Church. Much more important than macro-economic factors, is the actual neighborhood in Falls Church where you’re shopping! That’s because all real estate is unique. By the same token, opportunities in real estate are unique. That special home you’ve found in Fairfax County might never be on the market again in your lifetime.

Don’t confuse yourself with too many opinions.
Everyone likes a little reassurance from friends or relatives, but it’s hard to hear you’re own thoughts, if you’re taking in advice from many people. Focus on the wants and needs of the people who will actually be living in this high-rise condo.

Every home in Fairfax County 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 the home has 2 bedrooms but no garage parking.The association doesn’t have enough amenities, but the association fee is low. Make a list of your top priorities, and start with homes that meet your basic requirements.

Don’t expect that to negotiate too much in Falls Church.
There are other buyers in Falls Church and they are looking at the same data. If a home is under-priced, expect it to get bid up.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 home, you’re buying a community.
Don’t get completely enamored by the physical aspects of a home to the point that you forget about important issues such as:

  • noise level
  • neighborhood pride of ownership
  • resalability
