You've prepared yourself for your home search and think you know what you want. You've been watching the market for some time now and following prices, trends, and available homes. You've done your research by reading Blog Articles for Buyers.
Taking the next step, you've outlined your criteria for your next home. Not just your price range, location, beds and baths, but much, much more. Down to the nitty-gritty. You have your specific list of wants and needs. Whether it's abundant closet space, cathedral ceilings, granite counters, hardwood floors, or proximity to your favorite restaurant, you've got it figured out.
Congratulations, you're approved for your mortgage loan! You meet with your trusted Northern Virginia REALTOR to get the process started and begin looking at homes.
Now, it's time to ask yourself one question:
ARE YOU READY?
If you found a home today that matched all of your criteria including your price range, would you be ready to make an offer and write a check? (Don't forget to Bring Your Checkbook With You on Your Househunt). As I've written before, Real Estate is a Process of Elimination. It's fairly easy to narrow down your search and focus in on the properties that will work.
The question is -- when you see that right home, are you ready to buy it? If so, great! It's time to move on to the next stage of the homebuying process. Contract & negotiation. Luckily you hired a great negotiator.
If you are not ready, why not?
- Are you worried that there's a better home out there that you haven't seen yet?
- Are you still hesitant about your decision to buy?
- What's holding you back?
Northern Virginia homes are still selling and not staying on the market forever. You can be patient in your home search, but just remember that the good ones go fast. Chances are if you like it, so does someone else.
Make sure you ask yourself if you are ready. You need to be honest with yourself and your REALTOR.
If you know you are ready, willing, and able, contact me today and we'll find that right home together.
