First of all, the Charlottesville area continues to grow as time goes by. This is due to the many wonderful advantages of living in this area. Most likely you will have choices among the vast numbers of neighborhoods. Therefore, the following information will be most helpful when beginning your new home search.

Things to Think About and How to Find What You Are Looking For:

When you begin looking for your new home, you will have in mind specific criteria.  The criteria will likely include location, price, size, number of bedrooms and bathrooms, and whether or not a basement or garage is imperative.  Almost any Home Search form you find will include these basic criteria.

What if it's important that the house be located within a specific school district?  Maybe you want a house only within a certain subdivision.  These and other specific "filters" are available here: Search For Homes. You can search by the vintage of a home, the builder, the acreage of its property, and even whether or not it enjoys a water view!

There may be specific filtering data that will make Your Home Search even better.  For example, maybe it's important that there is a bedroom on the main level, that the kitchen has been updated, or that there is a detached workshop on the property, a barn, or fencing for animals.  When that's the case, just click here: Contact Us and tell us what you need... we will tailor Your Home Search and make sure you are updated whenever a home meeting your criteria hits the market!
