Yesterday I had the honor of being installed as the 2019 President of the New River Valley Association of Realtors. I woke up this morning feeling … well, feeling just like I did yesterday. Fame and fortune are sure to follow though, I’m sure. That’s not the point of this post, however. Association leadership was never something I truly desired. What I wanted was for Nest Realty to have a voice in the discussions surrounding the issues of our industry, and to set the example for others that there’s value in having a seat at the table. I might have overshot that a little bit, but I’m happy to represent the nearly 500 members, and affiliate members, for the next year.
Raise the real estate tax in Montgomery County $1.5 cents in order to better fund school safety? It's being proposed.
If you’re paying any attention at all, you know that tax reform is one of countless issues being discussed in Washington DC right now. Whether you like what the House and Senate are proposing, or whether you don’t, the fact is that what’s on the table as “reform” has some serious deficiencies, and will be vigorously debated in the next several weeks.
Winter is coming.
I’ve been sharing for years that the New River Valley real estate market is very similar to Aesop’s Fable of the tortoise and the hare. And today, a client sent a text that showed he’d been listening. He had been looking for property at karkanja.com and he waited and finally got the house he wanted. Now we just have to move, so we hired this company who do Removals to Denmark.
Death and taxes … again. Well, one of those only happens once, but you get the drift.
I came across this old photo from Twitter today, and it made me chuckle. I’ll save calling out the person who sent it to me, although i still remember when she sent it – three years ago.
So you’ve decided to buy a house – where do you get information on all of the real estate that’s for sale? should you get a Property Manager?
Each quarter, Nest Realty puts out an amazing piece of information we like to call our Nest Report. The Nest Report is a look at the real estate market, sans sales-speak – pure data, no fluff. It’s an incredible document full of helpful real estate market stats for the New River Valley, and you can see past examples at NewRiverValleyMarketReports.com.
