This is not a post about Zillow vs the MLS. This is a post asking one question: Why is VDOT not marketing the homes they have for sale through the MLS? They are listed “for sale by owner” on Zillow.
That’s it. That’s the question.

It seems that the Western Bypass may actually be built.
Is this the right road? Probably not. It needs to go farther up 29 North rather than dump into the middle of the growth area – you know, to actually bypass the mess – but it won’t, because of our region’s collective inability to do anything with infrastructure efficiency.
So, we’ll get a sort-of-bypass.
Lynchburg has been advocating for the Bypass for decades, but their representative fairly well sums up the state of affairs:
Lynchburgâ€™s representative on the CTB said it was time to move forward with the contract. â€œThis is the plan, this is as good as we got, [and] this is as good as itâ€™s going to get,â€ said Mark Peake. â€œThis is far from being a road to nowhere. This is a road from North Carolina to Washington, D.C.â€
And so we move. Forward?
