Know that there’s no “ideal” time to pick up real estate in 22315 in Fairfax County.
If you find the best choice of mid-market house today, don’t 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 house’s price in Fairfax County. Much more important than macro-economic factors, is the actual neighborhood in Alexandria where you’re shopping. That’s because all real estate is unique. By the same token, opportunities in real estate are unique. That special home you’ve found in Alexandria might never be on the market again in your lifetime.

Don’t poll the village for opinions.
It’s nice to have some support when you’re making a big decision, but divergent ideas might not be compatible in an actual home purchase. Concentrate on your needs and wants, and not the needs and wants of people who won’t be living in the home.

Every home in 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 association provides all utilities but the association fee is high.If it’s in the right location, the yard may be a bit smaller than you had hoped. Organize your needs and wants, and start by shopping those homes that meet your requirements.

You can’t negotiate a super-deal in Fairfax County, Virginia.
Alexandria is filled with sellers who are well-educated, intelligent and they have access to loads of information. We have a very efficient real estate market in Fairfax County and most homes will trade for about what they are worth. There are very few properties that sell for more or less than the appraised value.

When you buy a home, you’re buy 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:

  • noise level
  • resalability
  • privacy

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

  • list your priorities
  • think about title companies
  • investigate insurance
  • learn more about home inspections

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. Phone me if you’d like to learn more about 6841 Rolling Creek Way.
