Punxsutawney Phil Predicts Early Spring For NoVA Home Buyers

Welcome to Spring Phil

Within a space of 30 minutes yesterday I witnessed 5 sets of potential buyers in and out of an REO in Woodbridge.  Moving down the road to another HUD owned home there were 3 sets of folks coming and going.If you are thinking of buying a Norther Virginia home this spring it’s time to get everything lined up.

 

 

Loan approval
Earnest money deposit
Down Payment
Sneakers
Patience

Though the inventory is starting to rise slowly it would have to take an enormous surge of properties coming on the market to catch up to previous years.

I am not advocating forgoing the basics when writing an offer.  In fact making sure your offer makes a good “first impression” by being complete when presented is a big first step.  When I receive offers on a listing with missing pages, full of blanks etc, I wonder how serious the buyers really are.  With forms on-line and electronic signatures there is no reason to present an illegible handwritten offer.

If you aren’t working with a Northern Virginia agent already then give us a call to talk about your plans.  Let’s get you ready for now so when you find your dream home you’ll be ready to go.
