Real Estate market through out the country is insane and buyers are bidding up. However working in a tech savvy area like Northern Virginia Real Estate market has its own down side.
I am working with a very young energetic couple. After initial consultation and browsing homes they immediately knew what they were looking for in their new home and the areas they had narrow down for their single family homes in Fairfax County Virginia.
The wife would eliminate any listings that pictures were not pretty or say it did not appeal to her. I told her on few of them it may be worth it. However she detached and made an immediate judgment about the home and did not want to see.
After few times I told her I will meet her at a property I did not want her to go online and look up the listing.
The wife met me during her lunch hour. The home was older than their search criteria listed item. However it meticulously maintained, well below their budget so they can upgrade as time goes by, great floor plan and structurally everything they were looking for in an area she wanted to live and raise her family. She called her hubby met again in the evening, wrote a contract and guess what who is closing on home!!!
Now sit back and think again, what if she had looked at the online pictures? I agree some listing agents dis-service by uploading pictures that reflect worst features about the home.
Sometimes buyers need a new perspective and connection to the home. So if you are a Fairfax or Loudoun county home buyer don't just say no to a home because you don't like the pictures. Go and explore the home if it is in an area you desire to live in.
