Snow is on the way for the New River Valley, and Montgomery County Public Schools Big Tweeter Mark Miear posted a helpful infographic of how MCPS reviews conditions, and determines school closures. I thought I’d post it here – I don’t have any details on other counties in the region, but I have to imagine they follow similar protocols.

There are tons of things I’m proud of about Nest Realty, but one of the things I get really excited about is our Nest Report. It’s a statistical look at what’s happening in the New River Valley real estate market, and it’s put out every quarter.

Please be sure to check with the venue for the exact times – things may change due to weather and what not!
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.
