As Realtors, we get asked a lot “what’s the market like right now?”. I was in Richmond last week, meeting with Virginia Senators and Delegates from our district, and every single one of them asked “how’s the market?”. It can seem disingenuous to always be saying that the real estate market is moving quickly, but as you can see from the graph below of single family homes south in Blacksburg and Christiansburg, as of this post the market is moving quickly. We’re not making this up.

July 4th is right around the corner, and it’s time to start planning all of your Independence Day celebrations. Certainly no Fourth of July holiday is complete without a great fireworks show, so if you’re looking for where the fireworks are, here’s the list for Blacksburg, Christiansburg, and Radford.

Seems a lot of people consider negotiation as “ask less than the list price and expect that they’ll come back somewhere in the middle.” At its’ simplest sure, that might work, but it also helps to know at what price sellers are pricing their homes, and also at what price buyers are buying those same homes for. This is where the list to sale ratio comes in.
I’m admittedly a week or so behind on this news, but it’s relevant nonetheless.
A few weeks ago I was at a conference, and the question was asked by a presenter “what’s the luxury market in your area?” I had an idea, but it was simply based on a gut feeling, and not rooted in stats. So, Alma
helped me pulled the numbers for 2012 YTD in Christiansburg VA, which you’ll find below. The only ones not listed are these luxury condos that are actually quite gorgeous.

Christiansburg residents, it’s time for Fall cleanup, aka the annual purge of items you’ve been too lazy to haul off to the dump yourself, or give away on Craigslist and Freecycle!
