Sure we have homes in the City of Charlottesville as well as the county but what I find is my clients often want to search for homes by school.
An example is a recent client was looking in the Jouett Middle School area.
Well as you can see, I have a “Link” for that 🙂
Oh and yes, we can search by price too in an area. as an example if you are looking in Jouett Middle School between 300,000 and 400,000 I have a link for that too!
Actually when looking at Charlottesville Real Estate I have a link for any school area at any price range, just ask!
I show a lot of rural property, land and homes in Albemarle county and Charlottesville Real Estate.
There are some areas in Nelson, Fluvanna and Greene counties that are seldom on the market. Before I drive out to these properties I like to give the listing agent a call and there is one question that I always ask….
What about those “Langoliers”?
I usually get a “WHAT” response and I go on to ask about those “Huge Power Lines”…. Are there any visible from the property… (Most Agents will not put a picture of a Power Line in the photos of our MLS. Why would they?)
You see when you are looking at rural property, power has to get there some way and most of it is not underground.
These large power lines are a real eye-sore for many of my buyers. Some feel that they are also a health risk.
So if I ask an agent about those “Langoliers” I want to know about “Power Lines” …
If you did not read the Steven King Book, or see the movie, you have no idea what I am talking about!
Should I buy? Should I rent? How do I get Financing? Who can I trust? What is Dual Agency?
Questions, Questions, Questions
there are a lot of questions and you have just found a resource for all the answers.
Working with First Time Buyers is very rewarding for me as I get to help you in a new experience. We will locate the perfect area and the perfect place that you are comfortable with and can afford.
You will be introduced to lenders, attorneys, home inspectors, and it will be an education. What I want you to know is I understand that you have never done this before, but rest assured that I have.
re to consider:
When you are a "First time Home Buyer" there is a lot to consider and it can be overwhelming. Here are a few things you need to do and consider:
Get Pre-Qualified: Talk with a local lender, in fact before you purchase I recommend you talk to 3 lenders. This can help determine how much of a home you can afford. There is no reason to look at home that are not in your price range. With competitive rates you may find that the range is much different than you think.
Get a Pre-Approval Letter: This is a written commitment from a lender that will be used when we write a contract on your new home. It is critical in today’s market that we have this in place. By the way, some lenders have gotten me this information after a 10-15 minute phone call with my client. So this is not really time consuming, just make the call.
Get proper Representation: Use a Buyers Agent. someone who is truly working in your best interests and NOT the interests of the seller.
Wants and Needs: These are two different things and it would help you to make a list of each. Needs should be the things you must have in a home, like 3 bedrooms, location or an office. Wants are just that, things that would be nice like a 2 car garage or hiking trails, etc….
Staging is Part of Selling: Seller will stage a home to present it in the best light they can. You have to be aware that the home will look different with your furnishings. Keep this in mind when we are looking at properties.
