It is still a seller’s market for condos, townhomes, and affordable homes up to $500,000. This means there will usually be anywhere from 2-5 offers on any listing within two days. So sharpen your pencils and get in there the first day! As for Charlottesville luxury homes priced from $800-$1.5M it is still a hot market but expect the home to go under contract within 3-5 days (again depending on its location and condition). As for farms, there are probably 50 buyers waiting for a small Charlottesville farm to come on the market. So be ready to pull the trigger when something fabulous comes on the market. And keep an eye out for early March when the daffodils and azaleas begin to bloom. Spring Fever is when sellers list. Oh, and do NOT use Zillow or Realtor to track homes. Get with a fellow realtor or myself as members of our local MLS CAAR receive listings 24 hours before those other companies get our data, and by then offers have already been made.

As a savvy Charlottesville real estate agent since 2003, I believe there are four types of home buyers. Senior citizens; parents with young children; ones that enjoy living in a friendly community, and those that want peace and quiet and enjoy the country lifestyle.
Well, if I was moving to Charlottesville with the plan of living in a community, I would choose the following communities: Ednam (the Boar’s Head Sports Club and Birdwood Golf Course), Farmington (Farmington Country Club designed by Thomas Jefferson), the Club at Glenmore (gated), Keswick Estate (Keswick Hall and Golf Club)(gated), and Old Trail (Old Trail Golf Club).
These five fabulous communities offer golf, tennis, swimming, and much more.
If affordable living is what you are looking for then consider homes in Forest Lakes and Western Ridge. Both offer wonderful walking trails, a pool, and tennis courts.
