The Mortgage Interest Deduction & Charlottesville – Albemarle

Mon, 11 Dec 2017 17:45:19 +0000

Uncertainty is a bad thing for the real estate market. Any market, really. What impact will the tax bill* have on the Charlottesville area real estate market? I have never had a buyer tell me that one of the top three motivators for buying a home in Charlottesville or Albemarle was to take advantage of […]

10th & Page in Charlottesville – Historical Context

Mon, 04 Dec 2017 21:27:10 +0000

A Twist on the Craiglist Rental Scam

Thu, 30 Nov 2017 17:19:51 +0000

The craigslist scam has been around for years. Scammer steals photos from the MLS, puts up a craigslist ad for a house for rent (that is on the market) for a “it must be too good to be true” price. Think a $2500/month rental for $1,000/month. We’ve all seen that. But this is new. This […]



Blockchain and Real Estate

Mon, 27 Nov 2017 16:16:25 +0000

Q: What is a blockchain? A: “The blockchain is an incorruptible digital ledger of economic transactions that can be programmed to record not just financial transactions but virtually everything of value.”   I admit; I don’t yet fully grasp blockchain. But I know it’s going to change/effect how we practice real estate. Open data is […]
