How To Buy A Home In Northern Virginia: 5 Essential Steps

Real estate in Northern VA is a highly competitive market. The best properties are snatched up quickly! Using our site to find out what’s available and identify homes for sale in Northern VA that interest you is a great first step, but there are other essential steps you’ll need to take.

Step 1: Work With An Experienced Local Real Estate Agent

Northern Virginia has an extremely popular real estate market. Houses for sale in Northern VA can be put under contract the same day they come on the market. Real estate agents constantly monitor new listings and can let you know when a property that meets your requirements becomes available.

More than this, local real estate agents know the local market and can help you identify properties that meet your expectations but that you may not have even considered. They also have experience with every stage of the buying process and can walk you through what needs to be done, from making an offer to due diligence.

Step 2: Narrow Down Your Goals

Once you’ve started looking at homes and spoken to your real estate agent, you should have an idea of what types of properties are available. Now you have to get crystal clear on exactly what you want. How many bedrooms? What kind of commute? What kind of community?

You should be clear on your must-haves and your nice-to-haves. Would you be willing to accept 1.5 bathrooms but won’t compromise on being within walking distance from a Metro station? Base your list on your preferences and what is available within your budget.

Step 3: Talk To A Lender

While you may have a pretty good idea of how much you can afford based on the size of your deposit and your income, you need to talk to a lender to pin this down. Online calculators don’t always use the most up-to-date rates and information, so you may be able to get a loan for more or less than you think.

Having your loan pre-approved will make you a more attractive buyer because you can make an offer immediately and close the deal quickly. The seller will be less concerned about you encountering financial issues during the exchange process.

Step 4: Prepare A Budget

Once you know how much you’re approved to borrow, you need to figure out what this looks like as a budget. The cost of a home is much more complex than just the “sticker price” of the house itself.

The first thing to consider is property tax, which is dictated by the area of the home and the value. Your real estate agent can advise you on local property taxes.

You must also consider the cost of any repairs or renovations, fees payable to agents and lawyers, and additional fees associated with the home, such as homeowners association dues and homeowners insurance. You don’t want to make an offer and then realize your budget isn’t enough to complete all the steps to close the deal.

Step 5: Make An Offer

Once you’ve found a home you want, it’s time to work with your agent to make an offer. But this is more than just going to the seller with a number. There are probably other buyers looking at the home, so you want to demonstrate that your offer is the best of the bunch.

Your offer should include the fact that you’ve been pre-approved for a loan and can, therefore, close right away. If you want to offer less than the asking price, perhaps because something like the kitchen needs renovation, you can also explain this as part of your offer.

Your real estate agent will also be able to advise you on other details that will make a difference. When a seller has owned their home for years, they don’t necessarily just want to sell it to anyone. For example, they may be reluctant to sell to a property developer and be more willing to sell to a family who will love their home just as much as they did.

  • Fairfax Station: Considered by many to be Northern Virginia’s best community due to the great quality of life, including lots of parks and green spaces and a thriving social district. There’s great access to both Washington, D.C. and Maryland. Fairfax Station is also a great area to buy a historic home.
  • Annandale: With more than 20 parks scattered throughout the area, Annandale is perfect for anyone who loves to spend most of their time outdoors. It is a great place to look when you want more spacious homes and larger outdoor areas.
  • Oakton: Named after the hundreds of tall, gorgeous oak trees that blanket the area, Oakton is home to many single-family homes that are perfect for people who’d like a bit more land but also want to be within a nice commuting distance of D.C.
  • Vienna: Just 17 miles from D.C., Vienna is located on the Metro line and is also home to Wolf Trap National Park, Northern Virginia’s top outdoor performance venue.
  • Manassas Park: With a city motto meaning “The Welfare of the People is our Supreme Law,” Manassas Park is filled with tight-knit communities who love to call this city home.
  • Falls Church City: Known for being a warm, welcoming community, Falls Church was the first city in Virginia to be named an Environmental Protection Agency Green Power Community.

Northern Virginia Real Estate FAQs

Is Northern Virginia real estate a buyer’s or a seller’s market?

The Northern Virginia real estate market is currently a seller’s market, with an insufficient inventory of homes available to meet the high demand. Part of the reason for this is that owners who might otherwise choose to sell are deciding to remain put for now since they can’t get the price they want. This is largely due to high interest rates reducing buying power.

According to recent statistics, Northern Virginia homes spent an average of just 11 days on the market. That’s 15 fewer days than last year. Desirable single-family homes spent an average of just seven days on the market.

What is the average home price in Northern Virginia?

As of June 2023, the average cost of a home in Northern Virginia was $725,000. This includes single-family homes, townhouses, and condos.

Condos tend to be at the more affordable end of the spectrum, averaging around $352,500. Townhomes are more expensive, averaging $721,000, and single-family homes are at the top of the range, averaging $800,000. These prices represent an increase of roughly 3.6% on last year’s values.

How is the rental market in Northern Virginia?

The rental market in Northern Virginia is very competitive due to its popularity, proximity to Washington, D.C., and high quality of living.

However, due to current high interest rates, very few homes are available. This is because people who would typically think of selling, such as recent retirees, are choosing not to buy new homes and, therefore, stay put. The result is a lot of competition for limited housing inventory.

What is the most expensive place to live in Northern Virginia?

Proximity to transport tends to be the biggest factor in pushing up home prices in Northern Virginia. The most expensive homes tend to be within a half-mile walk of a Metro station for a drive-free commute. McLean, Vienna, and Oakton are among the priciest areas.

Is now a good time to buy a house in Northern Virginia?

Despite being a seller's market, now is still a good time to buy a home in Northern Virginia. Inventory of available homes in NVA has been declining for several years, which has seen prices rise. There is no indication this will change in the near future.

This means that the sooner you can buy, the better, despite high interest rates. When interest rates do settle down, you can always refinance. The Northern Virginia property market will likely get more competitive when interest rates drop and more people can afford to buy.

How is the housing market in Northern VA & Washington, D.C.?

The housing market in Northern VA and Washington, D.C., are very competitive. The inventory of properties for sale is very low, with a huge demand from buyers looking for their next home.

As the number of government and private sector jobs in the region grows, and people prefer to stay put in NVA rather than move upon retirement, the market will likely get even more competitive, especially for desirable historic homes.

The best way to succeed in this market is to work with great Northern Virginia Realtors®. They know the market and will be able to help you make the most of it.

You Have Options With Northern Virginia Homes

Finding your dream home in Northern Virginia can be a daunting prospect but also an exciting one. There are so many varied options in the area that you’re sure to find multiple properties that excite you and tick all your “must-have” boxes.

But the Northern Virginia housing market is highly competitive, and things move quickly. The best way to ensure that you find and have a chance to look at housing options that meet your needs before they’re snatched up is to work with a dedicated real estate agent.
