Love what I do

Life is good in Charlottesville!

Some sellers make me laugh

June 14, 2009

I have been on a little trip and one of my associates and I were just talking on the cell phone about Buyer Agent Bonuses while I was driving through Tennessee…laughing_horse

We both agreed that it is ridiculous to offer a "Bonus" to an agent that is already getting a commission. Why not just lower the price…

So here is where it got funny… I got back to my computer (I bring it with me of course) and the very NEXT email I get says….


I just had to laugh!

The funny part is that the agent sending this is a good agent and knows that these things are gimmicks and that the reality is that the price of the homes should just be lowered or give a credit back to the buyers…

My associate and I in Charlottesville Agreed that Real Estate "Bonuses" should just go back to the buyer….

No more games….Please….

Walk near Monticello

November 21, 2008

There are several ways to get to Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello and one of my favorite ways is by foot… Please preview the video above for a sample of the trail. I hope that you enjoy it half as much as we did taking the hike! Our family is seeing more and more places of interest around Charlottesville.

Sometimes it is good to explore your own backyard!

High Res Virtual Tour – Charlottesville Home
By Charles McDonald
In listing this home we decided to do high resolution photos for the Virtual Tour:
(I would love to hear your comments on these HIGH – RESOLUTION PHOTOS!)

This is an opportunity to purchase 2 homes on 5 acres for 569,900. The land is wonderful and the home is magnificently cared for. The pool is breathtaking, the grounds meticulously cared for more than 35 years are mature and beautiful. Major updates to the main house and cottage make the home completely up to date. Almost to good to be true.
