Hello everyone, and welcome back to those that have been here before!
I was recently featured on HGTV's series, House Hunters. This episode took place in Suffolk, VA, which was voted "One of America's 100 Best Small Cities to Live" back in 2010. Suffolk is home to The Planters Nut and Chocolate Company, dubbing it the "Peanut Capital of the World". Also offering the Legends of Main Street ghost walk, and providing access to The Great Dismal Swamp. The Great Dismal Swamp isn't as gloomy as you would expect it to be, given its name! It offers over 100,000 acres of outdoor recreation, from canoeing on Lake Drummond, to hiking any of the Ditch trails; there is plenty of wildlife to be spotted! From turtles and bobcats, to bears, oh my!
Alright, enough about the beauty of Suffolk, and onto the show.
Working with this couple was an absolute pleasure, and I was glad to be able to find them a home that was the best of both worlds. Although both Marcelo and Amanda come from a modest background, their wants and needs were different. Marcelo was looking for something remote, a little smaller, and something that he could invest some "Sweat equity" into. While Amanda was looking for something in a neighborhood, with a pool, and a bit more room for their expanding family. During this episode, I showed them 3 houses; one "Ranch" style, one "Colonial" style, and one "Traditional" style home.
The ranch home was a little bit smaller; had been recently updated, was off the beaten path, and well under their price point. The colonial-style home was built in 1929, was over 3,200 sqft, and offered an inground pool. The traditional style home, offered quite a bit of sweat equity, a large back yard, and the ideal master closet.
Which home did they choose? Check out the "Humble Beginnings in Virginia" episode of House Hunters here!
