Understand that there’s no “right” time to purchase a 2-bedroom Colonial-style home in the City of Alexandria.
If you find the right unit today, you don’t want to risk losing it because you’re trying to guess where the housing market in the City of Alexandria is going! Factors like market price and interest rate almost never change enough to make a difference in an individual unit’s price. Much more important than macro-economic factors, is the home itself! Every single property in the City of Alexandria is unique. By the same token, opportunities in real estate are unique. That special home you’ve found in the City of Alexandria might never be on the market again in your lifetime.

Too many opinions is not helpful.
It’s natural to want reassurance for such a big decision, but too many comments can make it hard to hear your own thoughts. Focus on the wants and needs of the people who will actually be living in the home.

Accept that there are no perfect houses in the City of Alexandria.
There are many examples of compromises that buyers have to make every day. Consider a few of these possibilities. Maybe you really wanted more than 2 full-baths.Maybe you love the kitchen, but hate colonials homes. Prioritize your home ownership desires and home ownership requirements, and focus only on properties in Alexandria that fit your specified criteria.

Be prepared to haggle, but don’t expect someone to give away real estate in Alexandria, Virginia.
Just because a home has been sitting for a long time, doesn’t mean that the seller is willing to negotiate. Sometimes it means just the opposite.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.

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:

  • how close the neighborhood is to friends and family
  • noise level
  • schools

Plan for the future.
Don’t wait until you’ve found a home to:

  • learn more about home inspections
  • to get approved for a mortgage
  • figure your budget
  • investigate insurance
