Charlottesville Downtown Mall Most days we are hard at work showing Charlottesville Real Estate. Today is a bright, sunny and unusually warm day so a small shopping is in order. We will be visiting the Charlottesville Downtown Mall to catch up with some friends and shopping.  We usually take walks in the county (see photo) but today, it looks like a walk downtown is in order. Great to have warm breaks in the Winter.

2011 Charlottesville Market Report The 2011 Market in Charlottesville was similar to the entire state of Virginia and better than many areas of the country. You can easily see the peak back in 2006-2007 and the current lows. I actually like to look back more than just a month or even a year so here is a chart looking at sales in Albemarle County going back 8 years to January of 2004. This is a lot of data and you can certainly see the trends that I have added to the photo. for complete details see Charlottesville Real Estate Market Reports I have always liked to review charts of the market, stocks and actually any trends. It is easy to see how things are going by looking at past data.  Let me know if you have any questions?

From my wife's perspective... Well, the answer to that question depends on who you are. Let me answer using my own family as an example. For my husband, Charlottesville offers an environment which allows his small business to flourish and grow by being a small enough town to enjoy word of mouth advertising yet big enough to offer a wide range of opportunities.  As a stay at home mom, I can get everything done that needs doing in a very small radius, (the food, the clothes, the dry cleaning) and have time left over to do some of the things I want to do. For me that means gardening, which this area is absolutely fabulous for, great garden stores are around every corner, I'm in heaven. Also, lots of great opportunities for art, music, and theater. Our kids (13 and 15) have had the best pos...
