Estate Listings

Northern Virginia Real Estate Listings
  • With hundreds and even thousands of homes on the
    market in your area, it can be hard to find the
    best of the northern Virginia real
    estate listings. Sometimes, a gem may be hidden
    among those listings that would be the perfect
    home for you. Here are five ways to find what
    youre looking for

1. Broaden Your Search Terms
  • People often try to find exactly what they want
    in a home and use narrow perimeters for their
    searches. Instead, be willing to broaden your
    search to see whats available. This may mean
    seeing what 3three-bedroom homes are available
    instead of four bedrooms, or considering a
    townhouse instead of a single-family home.
  • While its never advisable to go beyond the price
    you feel comfortable with, it doesnt hurt to
    extend your price range when searching. For
    example, your target home may be 200,000
    maximum. If you include homes just above that
    price in your search, you may discover a house
    thats been on the market for several weeks. The
    seller may be willing to accept an offer at your
    target just to get it sold.

3. Check Realtors Websites
Look at both company and individual agent sites
to see what listings are available. While these
listings are on the general sites, you may learn
more about them here. For instance, some real
estate agents include video and extra photos to
give you a more in-depth look at a home. You
never know when these northern Virginia real
estate listings might have what youre looking
for.
4. Visit Craigslist
Online sites like Craigslist allow you to view
listings in your area. Agents often put their
listings on there because of the search function.
You can also set up an alert to notify you
anytime a home is posted that meets your keyword.
This function is especially helpful if you live
in another area and are looking at northern
Virginia real estate listings to find a home.

5. Check First Look
  • Foreclosures can be a viable option if youre
    looking for a good deal on a nice home. The
    Fannie Mae Home Path program allows buyers to
    find out about the newest listings even before
    they are made public. You just have to sign up on
    their website to learn about homes as they become
    available. You have 20 or 30 days to put in an
    offer before they are made available to the
    general public.
  • Because you are competing against fewer buyers,
    you can end up with a lower purchase price on the
    home you select.While hundreds of homes may be
    available in your area, it can be difficult to
    find the one you want. Sometimes it seems like
    hunting for a diamond in the rough. You have to
    learn how to search for your home through
    listings and sort through options to find those
    that appeal. With a little persistence and time,
    you can find your home amongst the northern
    Virginia real estate listings.
