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.


Buying Haymarket Real Estate...Will it Pay?


The only factor being considered here is Home Equity. In individual cases it may be wiser to invest than to pre-pay your Haymarket loan. It also may be wiser to pay off high-interest, non-deductible loans before considering your home equity building options. Your financial advisor is the one to consult for these matters. If you would like up-to-the-minute information about home appreciation values in your area, please call or E-mail me today.

Choosing Your Haymarket Neighborhood


The fact is that much of the value of Haymarket and real estate in general rests in its surrounding economic and social environment, which means its neighborhood. In addition to being located in the right neighborhood, the Haymarket that you buy must not clash with its surroundings. To picture what we mean here, visualize the most expensive home you can imagine and then place it in the middle of a run down neighborhood. Not so desirable is it?

To sum up, the Haymarket that you buy gets its value from a combination of the homes location and its size, style, age and amenities. You can change the homes size, style and amenities but you are stuck with the location.

Does Your Haymarket Have Curb Appeal?


Every prospective buyer who visits your Haymarket home is struck by a variety of impressions regardless of whether your landscaping is eye-catching or merely so-so. Plants that overrun the walkway, trees that badly need pruning and visible suggest to the prospective buyer that this home will take a lot of landscaping maintenance and yet if your yard is well-maintained, the prospective buyer is inclined to simply admire the fact and move on. If your Haymarket front porch or front door need paint, the prospective buyer is likely to notice the paint job inside and out and think about how much maintenance that will take on a yearly basis. The important message here is that things that look bad or run down call attention to all the work that needs to be done while things that are well maintained conjure up ideas of how pleasant it would be to live there.

Haymarket ADVANTAGE


The advantages of buying in any particular city or area depend on the buyers individual needs. Factors include proximity to schools, work, shopping, recreation, cultural opportunities and health care. Affordability is another important factor. So your first step in considering Haymarket or any other city is to determine which of your needs are met and which are not met.
