Don’t wait! Move up to the home you always wanted in Richmond, VA

January 20th, 2015

Another great article from our friends at KCM.  The graph below is an excellent read to understand your buying power as related to interest rates.  Do you want to wait a year or two to only have to buy a less expensive home for the same monthly payment???


Now that the housing market has stabilized, more and more homeowners are considering moving up to the home they have always dreamed of. In most areas, prices are still below those of a few years ago. Also, interest rates are still near 4%.

However, sellers should realize that waiting to make the move while mortgage rates are increasing probably doesn’t make sense. As rates increase, the price of the house you can buy will decrease. Here is a chart detailing this point:


$1 million James River views in Hopewell, VA for $146k

January 10th, 2015

The PACE of Real Estate Group will be listing a home very soon that should have all nature lovers and those who love river views wanting to learn more.  The home is at 405 Ramsey Ave (click link for street view of home) in “A Village”, Hopewell, VA. This neighborhood was built to house the executives, managers and workers of the business in the area. The homes at either end of Ramsey Ave’s two cul-de-sac’s housed the executives while the homes in the middle were for the managers.  405 Ramsey Ave was built as an executive home.  It has 4 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, living room, dining room, kitchen, walk-up attic, and partial basement all totaling just over 1,800SF.  Heating is thru the oil boiler and hot water radiators and there is no central air conditioning.  But with the presence of the basement and attic, it should be very easy to add a 2 zoned system.

405 Ramsey Ave - river view 3The home is located on a bluff that is just downriver from where the Appomattox River empties into the James River.  On the left you’ll notice is industry located on Water Street and it is visible from the property.  On the right if you look hard you’ll notice cranes loading ships.  But the views that are provided from this property are like no other.  Homes in the city of Richmond with this view easily go from $700k to $2m.

Drive north of Water Street and you’ll quickly land at City Point Park which is adjoined to the Petersburg National Battlefield – City Point Unit.  Move just a little inland is the newly renovated Beacon Theater located at Randolph and Main.  My wife and I saw Brett Michaels from Poison play here (that’s a whole other story…ask me later).

Looking for a second home for weekend getaways?  You’ll be hard pressed to find a home with the character and views that 405 Ramsey Ave can provide.  Of course for the locals of Hopewell, this home is one of a kind and must be seen.

9 red flags to watch for when picking a real estate agent

December 3rd, 2014

3832 Houndstooth Ct - Exterior FrontOften, a lot of articles we find online are unrealistic or incorrect.  But this one is pretty good.  I can’t tell you how many times I hear that my cousin or sister or brother’s best friend is a part-time realtor so I’ll use that person to help me buy or sell my next home.  Why would you trust your largest investment with someone who doesn’t know the market or doesn’t know how to market a home?  Look for a realtor like you would look for a doctor.
