Light blogging

Whoever decided to put Spring Break in the middle of the spring market was certainly not a Realtor. The juggling act continues will be more interesting this week.

    Jim,
    I understand you are doing some light blogging but I cam across some interesting numbers about population growth in the area. The 2005 census was released and here are the results for our metro area:

    Albemarle is 90,717 from 84,186 in 2000 – growth of 6,531

    Fluvanna is 24,751 from 20,047 in 2000 – a growth of 4,704

    Greene is 17,418 from 15,244 in 2000 – a growth of 2,174

    Nelson is 15,101 from 14,445 in 200 – a growth of 656

    Charlottesville is 40,437 from 40,099 a GROWTH of 338

    So if you want to escape rapid growth in the area the only places that didn’t grow by over 2,000 over the past 5 years in the area are Nelson and Charlottesville.

    UVA08 –

    Will you please provide a link?

    Albemarle grew by about 7% – that’s quite a bit more than the 2% I often hear.

    I know that C’ville has been losing population due to affordability and school issues. Nelson and Charlottesville – very interesting.

    What about a link for Waynesboro’s population? I am getting ready to enter that market for a variety of reasons (more on this later) and I’m curious …
