Know that there’s no “most compatible” time to pick up a $675,000 4-bedroom detached in Alexandria, Virginia.
If you find the most compatible detached in Alexandria now, don’t take the chance of losing out because you think you can predict what the future will be in the Fairfax County housing market. Factors like market price and interest rate usually don’t change fast enough to make a difference in an individual home’s price in Alexandria. Much more important than macro-economic factors, is the actual real estate you’re looking at. That’s because, every property is unique. So, an opportunity missed today could be gone forever.

Yours is the only opinion that matters.
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.

You’ll never find a home that doesn’t require a compromise.
There are many examples of compromises that buyers have to make every day. Consider a few of these possibilities. It’s close to the Beltway, but far from your work.Maybe it’s picture perfect, but with a price that is painful. We’ll prioritize a list of needs and wants, and start by shopping those homes that meet your requirements.

Expect some dickering, but don’t expect any freebies 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. 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.

Remember your home is a part of a community.
Don’t get so caught up in the physical aspects of the house itself that you forget about important issues such as:

  • schools
  • views
  • parks

Prepare in advance.
When you find the home you want, you should have already:

  • figure your budget
  • investigate insurance
  • select a Realtor
  • think about title companies

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. Reach out to me if you’d like to learn more about 7522 Lindberg Dr.
