I Know Real Estate Richmond, VA Real Estate

After all, my office is in the Richmond area. I'm all about Richmond, Henrico, Powhatan, New Kent, King William, Goochland, and Chesterfield Va Real Estate. And I was sought out by publisher CelebrityPress while they were assembling an expert panel of top national Realtors to work with the National Association of Expert Advisors on the much anticipated The New Rise in Real Estate. They signed me to reveal my secret system for buying and selling in the constantly changing new Real Estate market. The book achieved top-selling status in 8 Amazon categories. I have a reputation nationally for excellence in Realty. Lucky for my clients, I continue to specialize in the Richmond Metro Area where I live and work. Many of the Real Estate agents coming up on page one searches are national directories that don't know anything about you or the area you're buying or selling in. I will deal with you as a person so I can find the right solution for your Real Estate goals.

Benefits of Owning Real Estate in Central Virginia

Real Estate in Richmond Virginia and the surrounding areas of Henrico, Hanover, Chesterfield, New Kent, King William, Powhatan, and Goochland is spread around the James River and the rocky and rolling green hill country around it, often referred to as the Piedmont of Central Virginia- the plateau between the Blue Ridge Mountains and the tidal wetlands of the Atlantic Coastal Plain. Richmond and the surrounding counties supply a range of amenities- from the financial, retail, and industrial powerhouses of Richmond, Henrico, and Chesterfield; to the often rural and pastoral feel of King William, Goochland, New Kent, Powhatan, and Hanover Counties. The whole area is steeped in historical significance and national treasures you can actually visit. The Central Virginia Area is home to many of the country's finer Universities. It also has museums of art, science, and history. There's music, art, and activities for the whole family.

The Richmond Area & Central VA's Economy Has Always Been Strong

Richmond is the State Capital of Virginia. Richmond and the surrounding counties have been a resilient financial stronghold through many recessions, depressions, and wars. Much of this was because of the economic activity provided from tobacco growing in the surrounding counties, and access to iron ore, foundries, and railroads. Now, the area's proximity to the nation's capital gives its own government and economy great strength and authority. Henrico County has the highest bond rating in the country. The Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond Va covers Washington DC plus most of the mid-Atlantic states and the Carolinas. It holds the 2nd largest assets of all 12 Federal Reserve Banks in the nation. This is an economically stable place to live.

Many groceries and supermarkets serve the whole area: Kroger, Walmart, Food Lion, Martin's Food Market, Red Barn Food Stores, and Ukrops. One of the great features of this area is the unusually high number of farmer's markets. Residents enjoy purchasing fresh, quality produce (often at a savings) while supporting the local agricultural economy. Banking is convenient in the whole Metro Richmond Area.

The Richmond Metro Area Is Steeped in History

The Richmond area was revered by Native Americans for centuries before the English ever set foot there. The Powhatan Tribe had settlements where corn, hemp, tobacco, peas, and other crops flourished near the falls by where Richmond is today. Expeditions were sent up to the falls by Captain John Smith, president of the Jamestown colony. The Powhatans resisted but eventually, stricken with John Smith's charisma, they sold the whole settlement for some copper and an Englishman named Spelman. At this point, Captain Smith declared the settlement to be the property of King James I of England. The other area attribute having repeated military significance in the Civil War and the American Revolutionary War, is that the James River can't be navigated past the falls. And, the river's often powerful flow impedes enemy ships from advancing upstream. Most of Richmond and the surrounding counties were part of a colony called Henricus at first. Eventually Richmond, still a city within Henricus, was named after Richmond, England. Henricus became Henrico.

Diversified Entertainment Throughout Richmond And Central Virginia 

The Richmond Area has amazing museums. You could stay for days at any one of them. The Virginia Museum of Fine Art has classics from ancient times to modern day.

Home Sales Up in the Richmond Metro Area  

Chesterfield, Powhatan, Goochland, New Kent, King William, Hanover, Henrico, Richmond

The number of sales closed in the Richmond Metro Area has been rising since 2010. 1,387 homes were sold this summer which is 5.3% more than last year. The Median Sold Price for homes in the area has been increasing since February 2011. The median Sold Price this summer was $210,000- which is the same price cited for last summer. The median Days On Market (DOM) for listed homes has been decreasing since January 2011. The median DOM this summer was 58 days, a 5.5 % increase since the last year. The average Sold/Original List Price Ratio has been rising since January of 2012 (except for June and July 2014). This ratio was 95.8% this summer, which is 0.3% less than the preceding year.

Real Estate Inventory Is Important

The Richmond Metro Area (as with most of the nation) has a big issue with inventory- the number of homes available for purchase when considering the rate at which they're being sold. Inventory has been low recently. Low inventory creates a seller's market where buyers feel pressured to snatch-up availabilities driving prices up with multiple offers. Even though the rising prices make the market appear robust, a seller's market reduces inventory. Inventory is usually described by the months left of housing supply. The statistics of Market Activity (homes sold per month) and DOM (average Days On Market) are closely related to this concept of inventory. Low inventory is an indicator of an active market. That's OK to a point- until there's virtually NO inventory. At that point, there is no market activity and market growth slows for an undetermined period of time.

The US and Local Real Estate Market Is in Recovery

Real estate activity has been robust across the nation since 2012. Recovery has been evident in Richmond's markets also. This recovery started after a recession resulted from the 'Big Housing Bubble' popping after years of subprime lending and mortgage abuse. Growth has been healthy since 2012 in the Richmond Metro Area- especially in 2013. The Median Sale Price dropped slightly this year. Homes have been staying on the market longer in 2014 which is good because it sustains inventory. The real estate buying 'frenzy' that happened from 2000- 2007 resulted in the 2007-2008 housing bubble pop (and subsequent recession). Tempered growth is more sustainable.
