When a relocation to Fort Belvoir Virginia is on the horizon the question is always the same...
Should we live in Fairfax, Alexandria or consider commuting from the Woodbridge Virginia area.
The chart below is an active current snapshot of what you can expect to pay for homes in all three jurisdictions.
As you can see the closer you get to the Washington DC Area, the more homes cost.
We have been coaching relocating buyers for decades in the Fairfax, Alexandria, Lorton and Prince William County Virginia area. Where you ultimately wind up living in going to depend on your needs, your tolerance level of traffic and your budget.
The good news is you can buy a home with Zero Down Financing here in the Northern Virginia and Prince William County Virginia area.
So depending on your lifestyle, your budget and tolerance level for commuting you will have many, many homes to choose from. Heading into the forth quarter of 2014, home inventory levels have increased a bit. This means you have choices and with a little luck and some masterful negotiating skills we should be able to get you closing costs assistance. We have assisted many military veterans in getting a home, and paying less than two thousand dollars out of pocket. So keep that in mind when you head here for a househunting trip.
Align yourself with a local real estate specialist early. The laws in Virginia state that in order for any home buyer to be shown a home, you must sign a Buyers Agent Agreement. This simply means whatever agent you choose to see a home with is the agent who will help you purchase that home. Agents in Virginia will not just OPEN THE DOOR and let you see a house. "It's against the law!"
So it important that you do some investigative work on the agent you want to work with. My suggestion. GOOGLE is your friend! If someone gives you the name of a family friend or relative that can help you. GREAT. Just do a little research to see how good they are at negotiating, how many homes they have closed and do they have the know the area's where you want to live and do they have the tools to help you located the right home for you and your family.
You are welcome to call me anytime. I have lived in the area for over thirty years and know the area very well.
