I’m working on some more charts and data to put the recent CAAR Market Report into the appropriate context. Writing a story/analysis that will speak to the broadest section of the Charlottesville real estate market is a nearly-impossible task as every buyer and seller has different situations, goals and life circumstances. When I consult with clients and potential clients, I provide more than financial and real estate guidance, but I try to offer life guidance as well, laying out different scenarios that they may not have considered.
Each property provides different opportunities and challenges.
