Death and taxes … again. Well, one of those only happens once, but you get the drift.
The Blacksburg Partnership recently published a video called “Step Into Blacksburg”, and it’s really well done. Nice job, folks!
A couple of weeks ago, I asked on Facebook and Twitter “what do you love about living in the New River Valley?” I was overwhelmed with responses, both in messages on Facebook, or tweets, or emails and in one case, a text. Here’s a list, unedited, of some of the reasons why people are so in love with the New River Valley (well, bolding or links are mine … so it’s partially unedited). Leave some more reasons in the comments?
I love living in the New River Valley. I could name fifty reasons why right off the bat, and if you gave me five minutes I could come up with another fifty pretty easily, I’m sure. My friends scattered around the country – in NYC, in PA, in Chicago – don’t quite understand why I’d want to live in a little valley here in Southwest VA. “We have Broadway”, they say, or mention Wrigley Field as if a plane isn’t available to me somehow. Sure, it’s SWVA, but it’s not like we have to walk ten miles to “get to town”, you know?
Lots of talk about jobs in the New River Valley recently, it seems.
Death and taxes. Good way to start a post, right?
Last week I talked about having a short sale right down the street from an upcoming listing. It’s not the greatest deal in the world, to have a house just steps away that’s being sold for less than what is owed on it, but it is what it is. My sellers are realistic, they’ve got a house that’ll be priced right and will show great, and we’ll continue on.
Next week, I’ll be listing a house in Christiansburg. That’s the good news. The bad news is that just a few doors down, there’s a short sale.
Finally, real-time search is available on NRVLiving.com. My thanks to Gary Cope of CWIMedia for his help getting it set up!
Welcome to a new week, and another in the “Best in the New River Valley” series! In part 1, we introduced Coldwell Banker Townside, the real estate company you voted #1 in the New River Valley. In part 2, we introduced yours truly and my snake charming skills. Part 3 included an interview with Mike Eggleston, the agent voted #1 in the New River Valley, and in today’s video, we asked others what they thought about Mike and myself – you might be surprised at their answers.
