Buying Your 1st Charlottesville Virginia Home - 10/21/10 12:40 PM
One of my mortgage brokers just sent this to me. It's re-posted from an article by Diane Wedner Oct 21st 2010 Top five reasons to purchase a home now. Buyers still waiting for home prices to scrape rock bottom (hint: they will never return to1953 levels) or interest rates to hit zero (I know, it feels like they're headed there) might want to consider that conditions for buying a home are better today than at any time in recent memory. Following are five reasons to consider a home purchase now: 1) Bargains are abundant, and buyers hold the cards. Home prices (1 comments)
Forest Lakes Neighborhood Videos-Charlottesville, Virginia - 10/19/10 11:51 PM
If pictures tell a story, then videos must tell a noveletta. Introducing Charlottesville, Virginia Neighborhood Videos I surf the web, I know how great it is to watch those YouTube videos of far-away places and exotic lands. But, you're looking to Relocate 2 Charlottesville, Virginia, not Burma, right? You're browsing every web site related to Charlottesville, Charlottesville Real Estate, Relocating To Charlottesville, Moving To Charlottesville, Albemarle County, and Fulton Gaylord (alright, just a shameless plug!). And what have you found? Lots of pictures? Pictures of our landmarks, our historic sites, the University of Virginia, the two Medical Centers, and lots of (1 comments)
How Is The Real Estate Market? - 10/11/10 01:10 PM
"Don't give me the facts, give me the truth. The facts are always changing." Well, facts show that the market in the Charlottesvile area is still depressed with prices still falling and market times increasing. But when people ask me, and it seems THE number 1 question they ask me, "How Is The Real Estate Market?", I often wonder what the best way to answer IS. Do I give 'em facts and figures, or do I give 'em my truthful opinion? I mean I do a lot of foreclosure work and those properties fly out of here like leaves before an (0 comments)
Charlottesville Neighborhoods- Videos 10-8-2010 - 10/08/10 11:50 AM
I have up-loaded quite a few videos of drive-throughs done with my little Nikon camera. I know they're not glamorous and glitzy, no sub-titles or beautiful elevator music accompaning them. In fact, probably best if you keep your sound off while watching them due to the sound of my truck and whistling wind being picked up by the camera's microphone as I leaned out the window and shot them! But they do give you a street-level view of many of our most popular neighborhoods in Charlottesvile. And I know that when you're relocating to a new area you want to see (0 comments)
Write It And They Will Come - 10/07/10 04:52 PM
I mean, the reason we're doing this is to generate business, right? I've been told that I must publish or perish. So...I've committed myself to write 3 times a week, every week, for 3 months. I know you're thinking "Yeah, so what? Woop-dee-do", but you've gotta' understand the enormous personal psychological demons I am fighting in order to acheive this task. I'm the son of college professors, you'd figure that would put me in good stead and fortify my writing ability. But alas, 'tis just the opposite. I probably should publish a book titled: "9 Million Excuses To Help You Avoid (7 comments)
