Do you need to know more about what to do to prepare for $510,000 house hunting in the competitive 22152 real estate market?
Know that there’s no “most compatible” time to pick up real estate in 22152 in Springfield.
If 7742 Shootingstar Dr is the right 3-bedroom 2-baths abode in 22152 for you, don’t risk losing it because you believe you can predict where the interest rates are going in Fairfax County tomorrow. Factors like market price and interest rate usually don’t change fast enough to make a significant difference in an individual townhouse’s price. A much bigger factor is the home itself. Every single property in Springfield is distinct. So, an opportunity lost today could be gone forever.
Trust your instincts.
Everyone likes a little reassurance from friends or relatives, but too many comments can make it hard to hear your own thoughts. Focus on the wants and needs of the people who will actually be living in the home.
Accept that there is no perfect townhouse.
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 Colonial homes. Maybe it’s close to the Metro but far from the school you want. Organize your priorities, and focus on properties in Fairfax County that fit your specified criteria.
Be prepared to haggle, but don’t expect someone to give away real estate in Springfield.
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.If you pay too much, relax. I’ll put an appraisal contingency in that will allow you to kick-out of the deal at no penalty if the home sales price is too high.
When you’re buying a townhouse like 7742 Shootingstar Dr in Springfield, you’re also buying a neighborhood like 22152.
Don’t get so caught up in the physical aspects of the house itself that you forget about important issues such as:
- proximity to shopping
- nearby restaurants
Get ready today for tomorrow.
Don’t put off these tasks. Before you shop you should:
- select a Realtor
- think about title companies
- consider a moving schedule
- learn more about home inspections
