Charlottesville, Virginia has long been sought after for its refined, cosmopolitan atmosphere and southern hospitality. It’s truly a relaxing place to live, work, and retire.
As one of 1000 Charlottesville realtors, I have found that most people move here because of the University of Virginia, the amazing history, two of the Top 50 Hospitals in America, superb public schools, Wintergreen ski resort, 6 challenging golf courses, our five Star Resort, Keswick Hall, the spectacular Blue Ridge Mountains, 11 vineyards, fabulous Charlottesville horse farms, the bi-annual Foxfield Steeplechase Races, renown music scene (think Dave Mathews Band), a hip art scene, two fox hunts, the nationally syndicated Keswick Horse Show, and tasty nouvelle cuisine and farm-to-table dining.
The first time Charlottesville earned this accolade was in 1812 when it was known throughout ‘these united states’ as the finest, Georgian city in the 13 colonies.
Culture, history, sports, arts & fun are here for all ages.

Interiors should have neutral paint colors with more luxury vinyl flooring and less carpeting.

It is still a seller’s market for condos, townhomes, and affordable homes up to $500,000. This means there will usually be anywhere from 2-5 offers on any listing within two days. So sharpen your pencils and get in there the first day!
As for Charlottesville luxury homes priced from $800-$1.5M, it is still a hot market and you can expect the home to go under contract within 3-5 days (again depending on its location and condition).
