House Hunters Haymarket: Join my Haymarket Area Buyers Pool

Haymarket area home buyers looking for unique features can be matched up with homes as soon as they hit the market

MatchmakerI would imagine there are a fair amount of Haymarket and Gainesville residents out there who are currently thinking about a move. It might be the desire or need for a bigger house, a smaller house, a different neighborhood or a house with other features.

Do you want more land or more privacy? Do you want to reduce property maintenance? Do you want something specific like a barn for horses, a main level master bedroom or a built-in pool?  Perhaps it’s a house on a mountain with an exceptional view.  (I have just that house on Bull Run Mountain, take a look.)

There are homes that come on the market periodically in our area with these and even more unique features.  Custom or unique features may include:

  • Large Lot / Privacy
  • Specific Neighborhood
  • Specific School District
  • 3+ Car Garage
  • Extra Detached Garage
  • Main Floor Master Suite
  • Energy Efficient “Green” Features
  • Multiple Home Offices
  • Barn for Horses or Livestock
  • Built-in Pool
  • Private Tennis Court
  • Media or Exercise Room
  • Lots of Storage / Built-ins
  • Wood-Burning Fireplace / Stove
  • Wine Cellar
  • In-Law Suite
  • End-Unit Townhome
  • Handicap Access / Features
  • Views of Water or Mountains
  • Contemporary Design
  • Older Home with Character

Everyone is busy. Who has time to go online and watch for new listings each day? Homes with unusual features may not last long. That’s where I come in. I guess you could say I am a matchmaker of sorts.

What if you find the perfect house BEFORE you have sold your house?

For most buyers, the ideal scenario would be to sell your house (if you own one) before buying a new one. If you are ready to move and have found that perfect house there are options:

  1. I may have a buyer for you. Perhaps you own a house with features that another “Haymarket househunter” in my Buyers Pool is looking for. If I know of a buyer who is looking for a house like yours, we can make the connection.
  2. A seller may be willing to wait. You could go into an agreement in which the sale is contingent upon the sale of your house. Terms vary depending on the situation. Sure, the seller would have to wait, but their house would technically be under contract so they wouldn’t have to continue showings or marketing. This may be appealing to some sellers, especially if their home has been on the market for a while.
  3. Take a second mortgage. Depending on your financial circumstances or the equity in your existing home, there are lending options that may work, including borrowing against a 401K or applying for a bridge loan for a short period of time until you sell your house.
  4. Rent your house. Again, depending on your finances, you may be able to secure a second mortgage and rent your existing house for a longer period. The rental market in the Haymarket area is good right now depending on the house and location. In our area, some neighborhoods are very desirable just because of the school district. Furthermore, interest rates are still at historic lows, so buying now is a smart financial consideration.
