Do you need to know more about what to do when you're preparing for home hunting in the tough 22102 in Fairfax County real estate market?

Know that there’s no “best” time to purchase a $300,000 1-bedroom 1-baths mid-rise condo in 22102 in McLean.
If you find the great home now, you don't want to risk losing it because you think you can predict where the housing market in Fairfax County is going. Elements like market price and interest rate usually don’t fluctuate quickly enough to make a meaningful difference in an individual mid-rise condo’s price in Fairfax County. Much more important than macro-economic factors, is the property itself. Every single property in Fairfax County 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.

The important opinion is your opinion.
It's nice to have some support when you're making a big decision, but it's hard to hear you're own thoughts, if you're taking in advice from many people. Concentrate on your own desires, and not the needs and wants of people who won't be living in the home.

There is no such thing as a perfect purchase in Fairfax County.
There are many examples of compromises that buyers have to make every day. Consider a few of these possibilities. Maybe you love the kitchen, but hate Contemporary homes. It's close to the Beltway, but far from your work. I'll help you separate what you want from what you need, and start by shopping those homes that meet your requirements.

Sometimes you can negotiate the price, but not always.
Just because a home has been sitting for a long time, doesn't mean that the seller is willing to negotiate. Sometimes it means just the opposite.McLean is filled with sellers who are well-educated, intelligent and they have access to loads of information.

When you're buying a mid-rise condo, 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:

  • waterfront or waterview
  • walking/jogging paths
  • commute and traffic

Prepare now.
Don't shop for homes before you:

  • list your priorities
  • figure your budget
  • learn more about home inspections
  • investigate insurance
