The Virginia Gateway retail space is planned to be the 10th-largest shopping center ...

My mother moved in to the condos of Heritage Hunt in November 2007.  This is her first Spring in her new community.  Last night I met her just before sunset to take a short walk and see some of the sights. The sun was turning the sky behind the mountains a soft shade of pink.  Walking near the gated entrance to the community you can literally see hundreds of homes nestled in the rolling hills.  Heritage Hunt has done a wonderful job landscaping the community.  The grass is deep green in color and lush.   This fountain is what my Mom's condo is facing, so she sees it everyday.  But it's nice to a get a look at it from the ground and breathe in some fresh air.  Just hearing the water splash down into the pond is relaxing.    This gazebo sits over the Entrance Pond, as it's known.  Mom an...

Yesterday my family and I met at one of the only open restaurants in Gainesville...The American Tap Room.  It was Easter Sunday, and the idea to eat out was spur of the moment.  The restaurant really wasn't very busy at all.  There were a handful of cars when we pulled up, and a handful when we left.  Our service was so slow, you would've thought they were packed. The food was incredibly bland, however they offer a wide variety of dishes.  At our table we had a chicken cordon bleu sandwich, mini burger and shrimp platter, chicken strips, humus sampler and lasagna.  Like I said, a wide variety...but nothing stood out in terms of taste.  If you are going to eat in the Gainesville area, I would recommend Ruby Tuesday's, Pizzeria Uno or El Tio.  _______ Postscript to this story:  American T...

If you are in the market to buy a foreclosure home, there are a few things you will need to know when you write a contract.  First is we are seeing the banks, sometimes, take their time getting a ratified contract to you, the buyer (ratified means signed by all parties) often times, it is difficult to proceed with the loan process without this, or even order the appraisal for that matter.  Also, this could affect your interest rate, if you have not locked in...be prepared for the process and be patient...If you need a loan...give me...Benny McKee a call 703 407 9398 Benny McKee, GreenWay Financial 703 407 9398 Homes for sale in Manassas, Homes for Sale in Haymarket, Homes for Sale in Gainesville, Homes for Sale in Vienna, Homes for sale in McLean, Homes for sale in warrenton, Homes for ...

The steps to buying a home can be quite confusing. What I hope to do in this post is help those of you who are First Time Homebuyers understand the process and provide future assistance should you decide to press forward with your home purchase.1. The first part of the process is to reach the decision that you are committed to buying a new home. You may currently be renting a home or apartment and would like to take advantage of the current housing market by purchasing a home now while home prices are down and rates are reasonable. In some cases, it's possible that your current rent payment might be equal to that of a home payment. Various home programs are available to help 1st time homebuyers with downpayment assistance and or, financing.2. Select the right Agent for you. Buying a hom...

ATTENTION SELLERS! If you are not pricing your house correctly and making sure that your home shows like a model, then don’t expect to see the results we just had with our most recent listing in Gainesville, Virginia. Here is the anatomy of a great sale:Monday:  Signed the listing agreement for $300,000.  After showing the Seller comparable properties for her neighborhood and surrounding neighborhoods, she agreed that this was the right price for her home to get it sold quickly.  Wednesday:  We staged this adorable 3 bedroom, 3.5 bath.  This house already had great promise with hardwood floors on the entire first floor, not to mention a very realistic seller.  We just moved a few pieces of furniture around and added some finishing touches to give it that great first impression.Thursday:...
