Charlottesville is a great place to live (I take pictures of Charlottesville here and here), but there’s more to Charlottesville than you’ll find on the many lists on which we find ourselves (here’s the most recent).
Third – When having this discussion – “should we move to Charlottesville?” I’d suggest considering what it is you do now, how/where do you anticipate living (what are your triangles?) in Charlottesville? Where do you think you might want to live? This is important — please, have coffee with a good Realtor and get context (please – this isn’t about me being a Realtor, but me being a human who wants the best for people) to the Charlottesville area and real estate market.
Fourth – real estate in Charlottesville can be seen as expensive, and there are some popular neighborhoods.
My response to the specific poster who likes hiking, needs great schools, and more.
“Move” is a four-letter word – it’s exciting, traumatic, intimidating, expensive, and stressful. Have questions about the Charlottesville area or market? Please ask me.
