Tips for Buying a Home in Fredericksburg, VA 

What type of Fredericksburg home are you looking for? There are so many choices that it is important to have an idea of what you want and need before you begin looking. Consider making a checklist of amenities that are essential and those you would like to have in your new home.
 
The questions below may help you clarify your thinking on what is important to you when you are ready to purchase a home in Fredericksburg, Stafford and surrounding areas. 
 
What price range do you have in mind? • What type of home interests you? (one-story, two-story, split-entry, townhouse, condo, duplex) What style appeals to you? (contemporary, traditional, no preference) Are schools a factor? Do you prefer, Stafford County, Spotsylvania, or Fredericksburg City Schools? Do you need to be close to public transportation VRE Virginia Railway Express Fredericksburg City or Stafford VRE stops?
How many bedrooms and bathrooms do you need? How many do you want? What are other interior features important to you? (separate family room, formal dining room, home office, etc.) What about exterior features? Have you considered a garage, yard size, patio/deck, hot tub, view, or waterfront? Are there any special features you are looking for in a home?
 

Buying a home is an important decision that can make an enormous difference in your lifestyle. It is also the biggest financial transaction you may make. There are some specific things to consider about a home to buy.

 
Be realistic: There are no perfect homes. Decide what is important to you, and make sure you find a home that has the features you require. Be prepared to compromise on some of the items on your wish list. 
 
Decide on a price: Get pre-approved for a loan not just prequalified. Consider not only the amount of the loan the lender will allow but also what you feel comfortable spending every month. Take an honest look at your budget.
  
Choose carefully: Buying a home is much more permanent than renting. Purchase a home that you are prepared to keep for a while. Select a home that will be reasonable to maintain, in both utilities and/or repairs.
 
Build up to your dream home: Most people nowadays buy more than one home in their lifetime. The average turnaround time is seven years. Buy a house you can afford today. Start to build equity and then you can trade up or up or even build your dream home.
