Are you considering buying a “main home” or a “second home”? Buying country property is a dream for many people.  With the constantly increasing cost of homes in the city or suburbs, moving to the countryside is ideal. Just imagine having a big house on a vast parcel of land where you can enjoy fresh air every day, raise pets, grow a garden, and your kids can play and run freely. If you are not fully committed to living in the countryside just yet, having a country retreat as your vacation home is also a wonderful arrangement. Many people buy rural properties as their second home, though some of them actually don’t have a first home yet. Your vacation home is a great place to spend the weekend, the summers, the holidays, and for when you just want to get away and leave all the stress be...

Never Underestimate the Power of A Great First Impression In real estate, as in all things, you never have a second chance to make a great first impression.  When selling a home, that first impression is usually online.  If a home doesn't have the online presence it deserves, like the example shown below, buyers may click away and never even make it through the front door.It just makes sense to have top-notch, professional photographs and a 3D, virtual reality tour like this one. If you are in Charlottesville, Albemarle County and a move is in your future, please call or text me at 434-282-7936 to find out more.
