This Haymarket, VA short sale was approved and sold on September 10, 2009.  It sold for $250,000 and the buyer even got 3% of the sales price in closing cost assistance from the first trust holder. June 4, 2009 was when this Haymarket short sale hit the market.  After only five days on the market, this short sale had landed its buyer.

THIS IS NOT THE OFFICIAL WEBSITE FOR THE HEATHCOTE HEALTH CENTER/EMERGENCY ROOM.  **IF YOU  NEED THE HEATHCOTE HEALTH CENTER EMERGENCY ROOM PLEASE CALL (571) 261-3400.** Haymarket's Heathcote Health Center opened May 29, 2008.   While it is known to many as Haymarket's Emergency Room, it's official name comes from it's location on 15195 Heathcote Blvd.  The facility is a satellite of Prince William Hospital, both part of the larger Prince William Health System. While Haymarket's Heathcote Health Center does offer a closer emergency room alternative to the residents of Western Prince William County, (compared to the Fauquier Hospital or Prince William Hospital alternatives) it is much more than just an emergency room.  The Heathcote Health Center is home to Doctors' Offices, a Rehabilita...

 So, you want to sell your house, and you are one of those that is fortunate enough to owe LESS on your house than it is worth? The first obvious thing to do is find a real estate agent.  I am not going to give you a list of question (at least not yet) to ask an agent.  The first thing I am going to tell you is to talk to your family and friends.. get a referral... it's great to work with someone who is battle tested by someone you know. If you don't have a resource for that..then the next thing is to run an Internet search for "Homes For Sale" in what ever city you live in... who comes up in the natural search?? Call a couple of agents....talk to them.. I don't know about you, but I can get a good feel for someone over the phone.. Remember this... a relationship with an agent.. is just...

Haymarket, Virginia's Subway is a true Mom and Pop operation.  You wouldn't think of a national franchise like Subway as a Mom and Pop store, but I assure you the Haymarket, Virginia Subway is exactly that. Both Haymarket, Virginia Subway sandwich shops are owned and operated by Govind and Manssi Mainali.  However, I still love the original Haymarket, Virginia Subway located at 6747 Leaberry Way, off of the Town of Haymarket's main drag (John Marshall Highway).  Eating in this Haymarket, Virginia Subway is a pleasure.  Good food and great people!  Manssi and Govind work out of this location and bring a special warmth and friendliness to the place. If you frequent this Haymarket, Virginia Subway, Manssi and Govind will get familiar with you and your order.  Manssi will see me coming and ...
