Know that there’s no “most suitable” time to buy.
If you find the perfect 5-bedroom Rambler-style pied-a-terre now, you don’t want to risk losing it because you think you can predict where the housing market in Fairfax County is going! Factors like market price and interest rate rarely fluctuate enough to make a difference in an individual house’s price. A larger factor is the property itself. Every property is unique. So, an opportunity missed today could be gone forever.

Trust yourself.
Everyone likes a little reassurance from friends or relatives, but who is ultimately going to pay the mortgage and live in the home? Consider your own needs and wants as a buyer, before you consider advice and desires of people who will not be living in the home.

Know that no property is ever perfect.
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.The living room may be perfect, but the bathroom needs an update. I’ll help you to make a list of priorities, and focus in on things that are most important to you.
