Haymarket Homes and Condos

Haymarket Home Improvement


Don't change the general architecture of the home, and make sure that renovations match. For example, a modern steel door doesn't belong on a ranch house built in the 1970s. Be aware of the features in Haymarket.

Do it Yourself?
Be extremely confident you're capable of taking on a project before trying to do it yourself. When it comes time to sell your Haymarket home, believe me buyers can and do spot all the signs of amateur work and they discount their offer accordingly.


Haymarket Real Estate Contract Options


The most common type of listing agreement used between sellers and the real estate broker is known as The Exclusive Right to Sell Agreement. In this agreement the agent agrees to include the home in the Multiple Listing Service (MLS). The details of a Haymarket real estate listed in the MLS are available to all agents and brokers and with the advent of the Internet, MLS listings are shown on the World Wide Web.


Haymarket Real Estate Cycles


What makes most sense is the "buy and hold" strategy. Buy a home you expect to remain in for at least seven years or more. Haymarket is no different than most, although the Haymarket market does have it's own special circumstances.

Want to get a clear and up-to-date picture of the Haymarket real estate market? Call me at any time. I am happy to share my knowledge of the real estate market with homeowners and prospective homeowners who want to take advantage of market trends to buy and/or sell wisely.


Bitten by the Haymarket Home Improvement Bug?


Unless money simply isnt an issue, the financial implications of remodeling are definitely something to consider. When it comes time to sell your Haymarket home, the new buyer will usually not pay for over-improvements. This means that if you have the smallest home in an area of larger, more expensive homes, home improvements may make very good financial sense. However, if you already have the largest, most expensive home in Haymarket, more improvements may make you more comfortable but may not bring you a good financial return. You may find that it is financially wiser to sell and move to a different home that already has the features you want to add.

Green Remodeling Your Haymarket


Energy conservation. The average Haymarket today uses systems for heating, ventilation and air conditioning, and most homes are not built as efficiently as they could be, resulting in high energy consumption. The U.S. Department of Energy believes if current buildings were green-improved, they would use $20 billion less in energy per year. Haymarket green remodeling puts a strong emphasis on making homes as efficient as possible with modifications such as energy-efficient appliances and thermostats that can be programmed at different temperatures for different times of the day.
