city of fredericksburg: Fredericksburg Virginia Homes For Sale - Architecture - 11/15/07 11:16 AM
When I began my real estate career here in the Fredericksburg VA area in 1989, it took me only a short time to realize that I had never seen so many split foyer homes in my life as I did after only a few months here. In particular, there were many of them in Spotsylvania County; more in fact than in the City of Fredericksburg or Stafford County. These are the three most densely populated areas in the region. Our family lived in different parts of the country and world prior to our moving here. New York, Oklahoma, Texas, Kentucky, Germany, Georgia, (8 comments)
city of fredericksburg: Fredericksburg Real Estate -Historic Fredericksburg Virginia-Progress - 10/04/07 01:42 PM
Is it progress or not? That's a pretty good question. As many of you probably know, the City of Fredericksburg Virginia is deeply rooted in history. The city can trace its origins to the 1700's and there were many Revolutionary War heroes who were both born in or lived in it. Many of my prior blog subjects dealt with our history and architecture. There is an historic district in Fredericksburg; because this district is nationally recognized, there are covenants which apply to existing and future homes in the historic district. Trust me, not all of the homes in the historic district are "old" by (4 comments)
city of fredericksburg: Homes For Sale Fredericksburg Virginia - 09/21/07 09:57 AM
Homes for sale in Fredericksburg Virginia continue to stay on the market for longer and longer. However, that is not the crux of today's blog. It appeared from my perspective that townhomes stay on the market for longer periods than detached homes in the same price range. Not being totally convinced that my visceral feeling could be supported statistically, I went into our MLS system to see what the system would reveal. I am going to conduct a similar study of homes for sale in Stafford County and homes for sale in Spotsylvania County. Ever feel like a complete dullard? Well avid readers, (0 comments)
city of fredericksburg: Million Dollar Home Sales - 06/08/07 09:35 AM
With absolute fear of aging myself, I have been selling homes in the Fredericksburg Virginia area since 1989. Having now conceded that I am an old man, I will also admit that I have seen some pretty significant changes in the real estate market here. Real estate in Fredericksburg VA has appreciated much like it has in the whole United States of America. Perhaps, it has appreciated more significantly than other regions. When I write of Fredericksburg Virginia real estate in this case, I speak of the City of Fredericksburg, Stafford County, and Spotsylvania County. The 2000 census revealed that the area had (3 comments)
city of fredericksburg: Mothers Day - 05/14/07 05:55 AM
May 13, 2007; Mothers Day! Unlike for most of you, I am sure, Mothers Day became a decision making day for us here in Fredericksburg VA. Decided not to spend the day at work but rather, to spend it doing something my bride of 49 years would enjoy. She has always liked photography but just recently became interested in digital photography. With it being such a beautiful day, we decided to make a visit to a local attraction that I had never seen. Belmont was the home to one of the early 20th Century's prominent artists, Gari Melchers (1860-1932). Melchers was born in Detroit MI (8 comments)
city of fredericksburg: Tell It Like It Is - 02/16/07 02:25 PM
Somewhere out in blogosphere there is a force working to determine how the real estate market is in the United States of America. Read a great piece with nice graphics by Caleb Mardini; Caleb is a great contributer (or is it contributor) to AR Network. He presented some different "spins" on the market and each is worthy of some thought. With your permission I will add a spin from my observation of the Fredericksburg Virginia area. We are located midway between Washington, DC and Richmond, VA. For many years we felt we were pretty well insulated from the mercurial movement of home sales (1 comments)
city of fredericksburg: Giving Back to the Community - 08/06/06 06:28 AM
Admitedly, the real estate market is slow in many parts of the country. Admitedly, alll of us will probably make less money than we did last. Admitedly, we are looking for ways to make more money this year. Well, this blog has nothing to do with making money. I has something to do with spending it! Early this year I was contacted by a friend and client to see if I would be willing to serve on the board of directors for a local organization that has been helping and supporting children and parents for over a decade. When he told me of (4 comments)
city of fredericksburg: Some Win, Others Lose - 07/22/06 06:39 AM
Last week the Fredericksburg Virginia area received some great news. The Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) Commission had recommended that civilian, contract and military positions supporting the Aegis ballistic missile defense program be moved from leased office space onto a military reservation for security and economic reasons. The Dahlgren Navy base in King George County will be the site where up to 300 highly skilled jobs/individuals will be reassigned. Other military installations (like Fort Belvoir in Fairfax County) already have problems with accommodating jobs scheduled to relocate according to John Warner (R-VA). The Navy's Aegis training center is already located at Dahlgren so this (1 comments)
