Tomorrow starts the second weekend of the Blue Ridge Home Builders Association Parade of Homes.  On Saturday and Sunday, October 13th-14th, homes are open again from noon until 5pm.  This annual Charlottesville VA area event is a must for anyone planning a move, planning a remodel, or just plain interested in looking at houses (there's no shame in that!).  It's Free and Open to the Public. Last weekend, I used the app to find my way around the Parade homes.  To find the Parade app, simply visit the App store and search for "Blue Ridge Home Builders Assocation Parade of Homes".  I confess that I also picked up a good, old-fashioned magazine.  You can find a magazine in Parade homes, or you can view it online. The app is great for directions.      It's also really useful to have all the p...

Are you thinking of selling your farm? Putting your Charlottesville VA farm on the market is not as easy as sticking up a ‘for sale’ sign in front of your property. It can be a challenging process, both from a business and family perspective. Sometimes it can also be an emotional event, especially if the property has been in the family for generations. It isn’t just a house and some parcel of land. It’s an important part of your family’s life, filled with wonderful memories. However, there are circumstances when you have to part with it.  Regardless of the motivation to sell your farm, it is important that both you and your property are prepared for the selling process. First impressions matter in life and selling a rural property is no exception. When you impress potential buyers viewi...

Considering selling your home?  If you are planning to put your Charlottesville golf course home up for sale this year, this summer is the best season to do it! The interest rates are still low, and there are many buyers looking to invest in golf communities.  Selling a golf course home requires a different approach than selling a $150,000 home around the corner. You need special knowledge of the local real estate market, intensive knowledge and experience in marketing, and plenty of time to handle the preparation before selling. Without the right help, you may end up losing money over the sale, instead of gaining a profit from it. And in real estate, this translates to thousands of dollars.To protect yourself from such a big financial loss, here are 4 major mistakes sellers of golf cou...
