Can a Gainesville, VA Buyer Find a Home Their First Day House Hunting?If you are a buyer in the Gainesville, VA marketplace, you know that there is not much inventory.  This is a seller favored market at the moment.  However, that doesn't mean that a serious Gainesville, VA buyer can't find their home on day one of the house hunt.On June 4th (2019,) I first met buyers who were relocating to the Gainesville area.  We had spoken on the phone, but scheduled our first day out house hunting  that day.  We saw seven houses that day.  The third house we saw was the one that stood out to the buyers.  I asked them the critical question, "Do you like that home enough that if it went under contract with another buyer you would be upset?"  When the answer was yes, it was time to order a pizza to th...

The real estate market is sometimes hard to understand. With mountains of information to sort through, price comparisons to make, and locations to scout, finding the right house can certainly be a challenge. The challenges, however, can start even sooner than that.Sometimes the right agent is even harder to find than the right home. For George, however, he knew the agent to work with from the get-go. As a former Ask Gina & Company team member, he knew he could trust Team AGC to find him the home he was looking for. Loyal to our employees, both past and present, we knew we couldn’t let him down.Keeping George’s preferences in mind, we began our search! After a bit of looking around, we found a Gainesville townhome that was perfect for George. A brand new construction home from Stanley Ma...

Jim and Michelle decided it was time for a move. In need of a new place to call home, they contacted Ask Gina & Company to ask for assistance, and, of course, we were more than happy to oblige! After all, we specialize in the Northern Virginia area they were looking to settle in. After a few short weeks of searching, they ended up settling on this beautiful stone front home in Gainesville.From the minute they set their eyes on the house, they could already envision it as their home; and it only got better from there. From the beautiful gourmet kitchen to the extra space in the 3 car garage, this house seemed to have everything Jim and Michelle needed in a home. Every step through the house made them want it even more, and once they set foot on the screened porch, they were treated to a ...

Can a Seller Make an Offer to a Potentially Interested Buyer? The other day, I was talking with an acquaintance named Bob whose home is for sale.  The house is not listed with me.  In fact, when I first engaged Bob in conversation while in his shop, he was talking about listing again after a couple of unsuccessful years.  Naturally, I offered up my services, but Bob laughed nervously and proclaimed that he didn't want to list with any agent he knew.  Honestly, I get that.  Bob is a business owner in our area and knows a TON of agents.  If he picked one person he knew through his shop, well, he could potentially lose a lot of business from butt hurt agents that didn't get the listing.  Bob is not getting an argument from me on that one because I have seen agents sever professional relati...

If Your Gainesville VA Home Has Been Listed More than Three WeeksYesterday I received a text message from a Gainesville seller whose townhouse has been listed with me for over fifty days.  She was really nervous about the fact that her home was still listed and had been finding agents online telling her home was essentially worthless if it was listed longer than three weeks. Initially, my seller's townhouse went under contract after five days, but the week of closing, the buyer's loan was denied.  Long story short, the lender had assumed that he could get a better worded offer letter from the employer that had enticed this particular buyer to Gainesville, VA from the other side of the country.  When pushed for a letter that put the buyer's would-be income into a yearly salary vs. the ho...

Gainesville, VA Townhouse:  Under Contract in 5 DaysOn June 22nd, I activated a listing for 7001 Village Stream Place in Gainesville, VA's community of  Crossroads Village at a list price of $309,000.  Being an end unit with a one car garage, deck and fenced yard, I knew it would get attention.  What I wasn't sure of is how quickly our seller's market in Gainesville would gobble up a townhouse with only one full bathroom.  When we first met, I was very up front with the seller that the one full bathroom may deter buyers.  Her townhouse was smaller than others and was functionally different with a full bathroom for all three bedrooms to share upstairs, and a powder room on the lowest level.  Couldn't change that, but we focused on the things that could be improved.  And the seller priced...
