I have buyers buying their first home tomorrow, sight unseen.

There’s really nothing more stressful than closing day for a sight unseen buyer, I don’t think.
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?”.

Leave some more reasons in the comments?

If you live in/work in/drive-in/drive-through/worship in Christiansburg, you’ve surely noticed the political signs that have sprouted everywhere. On May 4th, Christiansburg residents will hit the polls to vote for several races, including Council and Mayor. The League of Women Voters has posted videos of the Candidate Forum, held April 15th, on their website … sure wish they would let you embed them.
