BUYING A HOME IN ARLINGTON: IMPORTANT THINGS TO CONSIDER IN ADVANCE

So you think you’re ready to buy a home in Arlington, or the DC area? Here are some important things to consider before you begin the search for your new home:

1. Know your credit score: be sure you are aware of your credit history and FICO score. A lender will be looking at this information to decide what kind of borrower you will be, so this is imperative.

2. Pick the right agent who knows Arlington and Arlington homes – is a specialist here: Do your research first. Not only should your Realtor be experienced overall, especially in the area you are searching in, but you should feel comfortable with and have trust in her or him.

3.Get pre-approved for your loan first. This will save time and potential headaches down the road.

4. Be realistic about the house you are looking at: Think about what you can change and what you can’t. Ask yourself what you would be willing to live with, and/or what the cost would be to change it.

5. Don’t get too emotionally invested in one house. If it means overextending your budget it is probably not the right choice.

I hope this helps. We love giving consultative advise to our clients, and love sharing it with folks who are considering buying in Arlington or the DC area.

Getting it SOLD (and BOUGHT!) – for YOU!
