Buy the Right Home at the Right Price By Following the 5 P’s

If you’re a homebuyer in our market, here are the five P’s you need to remember to find the right home at the right price:

1. Professional: Find a real estate professional to work with. Work with someone who knows the area you want to buy in and knows how to negotiate. We’re in a low-inventory market here in the DC area, so if you don’t hire an expert to represent you, you won’t get the property you want.

2. Price: Know your price range. You don’t want to waste your time shopping for homes you can’t afford.

3. Preferences: Know your preferences. What are the items you must have regarding your new home? For example, do you need to live in a certain school district?

4. Perspective: Gain some perspective on the neighborhood you’re buying in. Start driving around the area and checking the comparable home sales from the past few months so you can make an educated buying decision. Having a knowledgeable real estate professional by your side can really help you with this process.

5. Put it all in play: This one is self-explanatory. Once you understand the previous items on this list, it’s time to put it all in play and buy the home you deserve.
