There are a number of raw land lots for sale in Lake Monticello. You would be surprised. Most visitors to the Lake think that the community is built out, and while there is not an ongoing “sale office” set up like you might find in a Spring Creek or Village Oaks community, there are a considerable number of Lake Monticello lots that are being sold by the owners. Why are they selling? Is there something wrong with the Lots? This is one of the questions that I get asked the most about lots that are listed for sale in Lake Monticello. Obviously there are a number of reasons, but there seems to be a pattern in the answers I get from the land owners…- Plans Changed “Our plans changed.” We bought the lot thinking that we would build when (___________) occurred. You can fill in the blank with,...

If you live at Lake Monticello, there is no need to drive back into Charlottesville to get a good meal or something to eat. Lake Monticello features a number of Restaurants and Eating Establishments that are sure to hit the spot. A few, like Dogwood and the Ashlawn Grille are finer dining experiences. Others Like Sal’s, Asian Cafe and El Vaquero offer international sit down options. We also have 2 take out Chinese Restaurants just outside the gates. Add to this a few of the Pizza chains and sub shops and you see that Lake Monticello has a number of Dining Choices.   Dogwood Restaurant Steak, Seafood, Pasta, Salad Bar and all of the classic food that have made the Dogwood a part of the fabric of Lake Monticello.

If you are looking to visit an open house held in a property at Lake Monticello, you will need to plan ahead.   How to Find the Open Houses First, you have to see which properties are actually going to be held open and you need to track this information.  Of the approx. 100+ active listings of Homes for Sale in Lake Monticello, only 3-7 are held open on any particular weekend.  Sometimes an agent can decide on a Wednesday to hold an open house for the upcoming Sunday, and not advertise the event very much.  They just mark the property as an open house in Lake Monticello in the MLS System.   We can help you find out which houses are scheduled to be held open in one of two ways: - You can book mark our page located at: http://www.choicehomesteam.com/lake-monticello-upcoming-open-houses/ -...

Lake Monticello attracts a number of residents that are attracted to the affordable homes in the Lake as well as the close proximity to Charlottesville and the University of Virginia. This mix of affordability and location has cause this bedroom community in Fluvanna County to grow and thrive. Because of it location compared to Charlottesville, residents have to commute to work in town. There are a number of commuter and transportation options that a number of residents of the Lake take advantage of on a daily basis. Park and Ride / Ride Share In 2013, a Park & Ride lot was opened next to the Turkey Sag Gate of Lake Monticello. The lot is located at the Intersection of Rt. 53 and Turkeysag Trail. There is not a direct Transit Service at the lot but there are 15 Parking Spaces set aside ...

What is the Absorption Rate for Lake Monticello? Hint: this does not have anything to do with how long it would take to drain or fill Lake Monticello. When it comes to real estate – Absorption Rate is the calculation used to determine how long it would take for all of the homes on the market to sell, if no other homes entered the market at any one given time. Based upon my calculations, as of 11/18/2014 – It would take until JUNE 24th, 2015 for all of the homes that are currently listed for sale in Lake Monticello to be completely sold and change the inventory to ZERO. 218.03 Days to be precise. Here are the assumptions that go into this calculation. First – the currently inventory active for sale along with the homes currently under contract with contingencies and those pending for sal...

How is the Lake Monticello Real Estate Market? Has it recovered yet? I heard it has a long way to go. – I have heard every one of these statement over the past month and past year. Home owners that are actively looking to sell are not the only ones that are concerned about the real estate market. For a number of older home owners in Lake Monticello, their home and it’s value represents a large portion of their investment and retirement holdings and the value of the home and the ability to sell the home when needed are very important to these owners. This also has an impact on the working individuals and families that continue to drive the local Fluvanna County and Charlottesville Area Economy. The first place that a conversation of this sort start out with is Price. The CAAR – 2014 3rd ...

We get asked this question alot. The Question usually is asked for a number of reasons. The home owner asking the question because they either want to know if they will get a higher price in the spring or they ask because they have been told that houses in Lake Monticello do not sell in the Winter months. The first question is usually asked because the home owner is hoping for a miraculous improvement in the market place between October and March of the following year that would cause their home value to jump by 50-100k over the period. (Mind you, even during the real estate boom in the 2000’s – this never occurred.) The second reason is because home owners have been told for years (mostly by agents) that homes do not sell in the winter. FOR LAKE MONTICELLO – THIS IS JUST NOT TRUE. Let ...

Are they Accurate The Zillow Zestimate has been used more and more buyers and sellers as a way to get an idea of the potential value of a home for sale in Lake Monticello.   As a real estate professional, no one item has caused as much distress, pain and confusion as the Zillow Zestimate – Espectially for Lake Monticello Virginia. Bottom Line – Lake Monticello Zillow Zestimates can be all over the board and in every instance that I have found – it is flat out wrong and inaccurate. Sellers have tried to use the Zillow Zestimate as a justification for why they want to price their homes a certain way and buyers have used the number for their offers – even having the buyer agent include a copy of the Zestimate as part of their offers.   So I decided to get the actual facts and share them wi...

The Fluvanna Review stated that I was "the only citizen to speak who did not oppose the development." I would say that this is a correct statement.  I would also point out that I never stated that I was in favor of the development. Rather, I had some questions that I wanted to direct to the Board of Supervisors regarding the principles that were in play regarding this developments approval.  From the first time that I have been involved with anything regarding Fluvanna, my intention has been to ensure that Fluvanna is placed in the best light possible in order to attract the activity that we desire in the county so that we can properly fund the services that we desire for our citizens and children.  To be positive about Fluvanna.  Frankly, the message out of Fluvanna over the past years...
