I’m woefully behind on this news, but Blacksburg has once again been named a “Best” Town in America, this time by BestCollegeReviews.com. From the site:
If you didn’t have to look up the definition of “busking”, good on you. If you haven’t yet, let me help you. I’d never heard the term.
The Blacksburg Partnership recently published a video called “Step Into Blacksburg”, and it’s really well done. Nice job, folks!
Ever wondered about those exterior walls on buildings you’ve seen around Blacksburg, the ones that have graffiti all over them? Where did the graffiti come from? Who does it?
If you’ve been around Blacksburg for any length of time, you’ve almost certainly noticed the old National Bank of Blacksburg building – on the corner of N. Main and Roanoke Street – standing proudly but looking rather weathered and beaten up. The building was an earlier home to the National Bank of Blacksburg, and in recent years had been passed around from owner to owner while sitting vacant and, quite honestly, falling apart.
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. Please be sure to check with the venue for the exact times – things may change due to weather and what not!
Over the last several years, “building green” has become a popular phrase among the real estate industry. Some agents have gotten their Eco-Broker(R) designation, others certified “this that or the other”, and everyone appears to be paying more attention to what their carbon footprint might be. Personally, I’ve seen clients take a dramatic shift from wanting to be “on the edge of town, it’s just a 5 minute commute” to choosing to be within walking distance.
Blacksburg – and the New River Valley – have just been named to another “Best” list.
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.
