Know that there’s no “great” time to pick up real estate in 22314 in Alexandria.
If you find the most compatible home now, you don’t want to risk losing it because you believe you can predict where the interest rates are going in the City of Alexandria tomorrow. Factors like market price and interest rate usually don’t fluctuate quickly enough to make a meaningful difference in an individual high-rise condo’s price in the City of Alexandria. Much more important than macro-economic factors, is the home itself. Every single property in Alexandria is unique. So, property that you miss out on today, might never be on the market again.
Don’t poll the village for opinions.
Of course, everyone likes a little reassurance, but too many cooks spoil the soup. Focus on the wants and needs of the people who will actually be living in this high-rise condo.
Every home in the City of Alexandria requires some sort of compromise.
There are many examples of compromises that buyers have to make every day. Consider a few of these possibilities. The roof is great, but the windows need to be replaced.Maybe the home has 1 bedrooms but no garage parking. I’ll help you to make a list of priorities, and start by shopping homes that meet your basic requirements.
Don’t expect that to negotiate too much in Alexandria.
the City of Alexandria has some of the savviest home sellers in the country. They are well-coached and well-informed. There are other buyers in Alexandria and they are looking at the same data. If a home is under-priced, expect it to get bid up.
When you buy a home, you’re buy a community.
Don’t get so caught up in the physical aspects of the house itself that you forget about important issues such as:
- nearby restaurants
- community activities
- access to amenities,
Plan for the future.
Before you looking for homes, you’ll want to:
- list your priorities
- select a Realtor
- to get approved for a mortgage
- investigate insurance
