Pines of Warrick Chesapeake Virginia Pines of Warrick in Chesapeake, Virginia is a favorite neighborhood for people relocating to Hampton Roads. The reasons are numerous.

What Homebuyers Should Look for in a Planned Community Today  Are you looking for the "right" home or "right" price? How about finding the right neighborhood too? It seems that many real estate agents and buyers visiting our communities in the past year are locked into finding the home with the best deal or best price. We like to remind them that they should also be looking for the "right" community! "Oh, you mean we should pay as much attention as to what the community offers as we do the house? What a concept!" YES! In this price-conscious home buying market, everyone involved should also focus on finding the right place to live- that being the location or community. What should you look for in a planned community?  Here are 5 things you should consider when you're searching for that ...

Residents Say Why They Love Living In The Riverfront at Harbour View In this video, Kristin and Mike Meyers discuss the reasons they love living in The Riverfront. They have enjoyed this resort-style community for more than 10 years and especially enjoy leisure time in the many neighborhood parks and trails, as well as participating in the family activities and adult social events that take place year around. The Meyers relocated from the Virginia Beach area when the community first began, and own a custom home built by Hohmann Construction. There are many reasons why The Meyers, and more than 1,000 other families, have relocated to this community since our Grand Opening in 2000, but our resort-lifestyle is one of the biggest. Check out some of the many activities that take place at the...

Before you make that offer on a home that you aren't that excited about, ask yourself- "Is this the RIGHT HOME for my family?" A few weeks ago, we had a customer walk into our Sales Center, and he said he was just in the area to look at a resale in the area. He stopped in because he wanted to see what new homes were available and what they had to offer. (His agent didn't suggest he look at new homes) After discussing his wants and needs, we looked at three homes and the next day he returned to write a contract on one of our new homes that was priced $150,000 more than the short sale listing (same size home, but different features). I'm sharing this true story because we've seen this happen quite a bit in the past year, much to the surprise of many in the business. Our hope is that real ...

"Custom Building" could be the BEST Option for Today's Homebuyer Yes, new home construction is up and people are building and buying new homes again in Virginia, and we're excited about what's going on in our four East West Communities in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia. New home sales are up in the Northern Suffolk/Isle of Wight area. Builders have definitely stepped up and are taking great care of the customer, AND we're seeing outstanding new home values as a result. One of the drawbacks of the building boom a few years ago was the fact that builders couldn't meet their closing deadlines and sometimes customer service fell behind the wayside. Our buyers are finding out that it is a great time to build after comparing their options with the other possibilities in the marketplace. I...

If you represent a custom builder or sell in a new home community with multiple custom builders, then this post's for you...Is there a difference between a "custom builder" and a home builder that prefers to build only a few house designs on a more volume basis (sometimes known as a "production builder")? Yes. There are quite a few differences and all builders were not created the same. It's our job to know the advantages and nuances of each of our builders and help make them look good to our customers. The Builders are our clients and they are our number one customer. It's our job to professionally represent them in a manner that each of them would be proud if they were listening when we're demonstrating their product to the customer. Never answer the frequent question, "Who is your be...
