Rich in history, western Prince William County is just a few miles west of Manassas Battlefield Park, site of the Civil War's first battle. Originally located at the junction of the Manassas Gap Railroad and the Fauquier-Alexandria Turnpike, Gainesville, Virginia was a changing point for stagecoach horses named after Thomas Gaines, the town's first postmaster.
In the 1940's, Gainesville was merely a gas station, a few houses and stores. Through the 1970's, it was a metal manufacturing center and a cattle shipping hub. In the 1980's and 1990's, Centreville, VA was known as the Interstate corridor's new home market value. Today, urban sprawl has turned several miles westward to Gainesville, Haymarket and Bristow. These boom towns's are bustling with new businesses, shopping centers, housing developments, restaurants and road networks.
Home to thousands of new residents and an impressive array of current and projected housing developments, Gainesville, Bristow and Haymarket real estate now compete with one of America's strongest new home markets, Loudoun County's Ashburn and Leesburg, Virginia. New home prices in Prince William County are generally more reasonable and the public school system though excellent, is not quite as highly-rated as Loudoun. The average listing price of all homes, both new and resale in Gainesville in 2013 is $485,000 with a $400,000 median. Since 2000, Gaineseville's population has grown a whopping 275%.
Currently selling new condominium and townhome communities such as Ryan Homes at Somerset condos are priced from the mid 200's and Ryan's Heathcote Commons and Wentworth townhomes are priced between $280 to $400,000.

Gainesville's premier luxury home community built by Brookfield Residential is award-winning Saranac at Lake Manassas priced from the high 600's featuring a HERS energy efficiency rating 27% higher than other area builders.
For homebuyers looking for something different, Saranac at Lake Manassas is a smaller upscale community appealing to those who seek a more rustic wooded environment on large half-acre homesites similar to what might be found in beautiful upstate New York. Saranac is different, not the usual Northern Virgina track subdivision. You actually feel like you could be living in an exclusive Adirondack mountain community... quite a refreshing departure from the mid-atlantic community norm. With less than ten homesites remaining at Saranac, Brookfield Residential anticipates Saranac's grand close-out just months away. Another advantage to owning a brand new home in a completed community is obvious... no more dirt, trucks and noise.
