Know that there’s no “most compatible” time to purchase.
If you find the perfect home now, don’t take the chance of losing out because you’re trying to guess where the interest rates are going in Alexandria! Factors like market price and interest rate rarely change enough to make a difference in an individual detached’s price. A larger factor is the home itself. That’s because all real estate is unique. So, opportunities missed today could be gone forever.

Trust yourself.
A bit of encouragement is helpful, however too many ideas can actually frustrate and confuse you rather than help. Give the most weight to your own needs and wants.

Accept that there is no perfect detached.
There are many examples of compromises that buyers have to make every day. Consider a few of these possibilities. Maybe it’s picture perfect, but with a price that is painful.If it’s in the right location, the yard may be a bit smaller than you had hoped. We’ll prioritize a list of needs and wants, so that we can concentrate on the factors that are most important.

Don’t try to be a killer negotiator.
Fairfax County 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.

Remember your home doesn’t exist in a vacuum.
Don’t get completely enamored by the physical aspects of a property to the point that you forget about important issues such as:

  • parks
  • access to amenities,
  • schools

Plan ahead.
Before you shop there are some tasks to take care of. Don’t wait until you’ve found a home to:

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