Appreciate that there’s no “ideal” time to buy a $779,900 4-bedroom 3-baths townhouse in 22315 in Fairfax County.
If you find the great 4-bedroom 3-baths Other-style townhouse now, you don’t want to miss out because you’re trying to guess where the interest rates are going. Factors like market price and interest rate usually don’t change fast enough to make a difference in an individual townhouse’s price. Much more important than macro-economic factors, is the actual townhouses you’re looking at. Each property, each home 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 ask for too many opinions.
Everyone likes a little reassurance from friends or relatives, but too much input can actually confuse you rather than enlighten you. Focus on the wants and needs of the people who will actually be living in this townhouse.

There is no such thing as a perfect purchase in 22315.
There are many examples of compromises that buyers have to make every day. Consider a few of these possibilities. The association provides all utilities but the association fee is high.Maybe you really wanted more than 3 full-baths. Organize your priorities, and start by shopping homes that meet your basic requirements.

Don’t expect that to negotiate too much in Alexandria.
Your home is more than a simple investment. It’s your home. It’s more important to get the right home than the right price. 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 property to the point that you forget about important issues such as:

  • convenience
  • community activities
  • waterfront or waterview

Organize yourself now.
When you find the home you want, you should have already:

  • consider a moving schedule
  • investigate insurance
  • select a Realtor
  • list your priorities

I can help with the purchase process. Even if you just need to talk to learn more about how to go forward, please don’t hesitate to call. Get in touch with me if you’d like to learn more about 2862 Lowen Valley Road.
