1. The area of Charlottesville is broken up into 5 main areas, within those areas are hundreds of neighborhoods - but only your neighborhood Realtor specialist can steer you into the right ones - away from the Riff-Raff and undesireables!

2. The further away from the center of downtown C'ville and the hub-bub from those University types, the better your chances of finding a friendly, safer, cleaner neighborhood.

3. A little known local secret: the original City Planners (Adams, Jefferson, & a guy named Fred) designed the city in the shape of a dollar sign. If you look at a map, you'll see all the worst neighborhoods align themselves along what would be the lines thru the dollar bill $.

4. Albemarle County has followed the city's lead and prescribed that certain ethnic, racial, and social classes must reside in neighborhoods that end in either 'Y' or 'S' They found this particularly useful when following crime trends, too.

5. There are only 4 neighborhoods in/around Charlottesville with double digit value appreciation over the past 12.625 years - even through the worst recession rocked the area in decades.

6. Realtors who live outside of the neighborhood you're interested in moving to oftentimes have the best objective viewpoint because they're not biased by the facts.

7. What are the best Charlottesville VA neighborhoods to buy in? The best on-line sources are Yelp, Trulia, and Foursquare. Clear, concise, unbiased information right at your fingertips!

8. Really, the only neighborhoods where you can be certain of property appreciation, family safety, and least risk of environmental disaster, are Gated communities.

9. Go to the local pet store near the neighborhood you're interested in. Ask the manager what they sell more of: small rodents, puppies, cats, or birds. If it's small rodents, then residents tend to squirrel their money away and resist keeping their properties up. If it's puppies, about 1/2 don't pick up after their dog messes, leaving a potentially hazardous condition. Cats? Well that means most of your neighbors will keep to themselves and only come out when they hear a can opening. Birds? Tends to be a lot of transient people, which could lead to more turnover, which could affect property values. Better to buy a fish - but wait, that might mean your neighbors are underwater on their mortgage...

10. Identifying the best Realtor to help you find that perfect home in that perfect neighborhood is as easy as calling the agent listed on the For Sale sign outside a home.

O.K., think you know which are FACT and which are FICTION?
