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.

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.
