What Do People Love About Living in the New River Valley?

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?

Buying Real Estate In A College Town

Oh hey – look, there’s a blog under all this dust.  It’s been a while – lots of stuff happening in the New River Valley real estate market lately, so apologies for being gone.  Absence makes the heart grow fonder? The Internet is a big, big place, and it’s impossible to read it all.  So I love it when readers send in links they find that are of interest.  In this case, Stuart Mease emailed me and said “you need to post this.”  So I did it – I follow instructions.

Stay Current On New River Valley Home Values

There’s a service I’ve been providing to many folks throughout the New River Valley, and as the latest information went out I thought it might be worth mentioning again. A lot of people ask me “when’s that house down the street going to sell?”, or “how much did that two-story on Main Street sell for?”  While I’m glad to tell you, there’s a way you can find out even faster.  If you’ll email me your name, email address and the neighborhood you live in, I’ll set up a search in the MLS that’ll email you every time a property in your …

Welcome to Single Property Websites

Single property websites, now live and only on NRVLiving.com! The video below talks about the site, how it’s laid out, and what buyers – and sellers – can expect to find.  I’ll be working on NRVLiving.com/Properties over the next couple of weeks to finish things up, but I was so excited about getting this going that I had to share. Several people I’ve shown this to have asked the same thing – “what’s the point?”. One of my goals in real estate is to provide as much information as possible to buyers and sellers alike, and as home buyers are …
