Things to know about Virginia beach

Somethings you should Know about Virginia Beach

What you need to know about Virginia Beach, before you move here.
For those of use who have lived here all our lives it is easy to not fully appreciate what we have here, conversely it is hard for us to imagine what it is like for those who are moving to the area. My wife and I have started traveling again, and it has never ceased to amaze us the differences between Virginia Beach, let alone Hampton Roads, when compared to most other cities.

First thing that will be plainly obvious is the shear size of Virginia Beach, the entire city consists of 497 square miles and has a population of 453,000 (rounded up, 2015 Census). Virginia has 38 Independent cities, and Virginia Beach is just one of them. Virginia Beach, Norfolk, Chesapeake brings the total population of South Hampton roads to over 900,000. Throughout Virginia beach you will find boroughs such as Kempsville, Bayside, Princess Anne etc. These are like small towns within Virginia beach, each with its own police department and fire department and there are 9 fully modern awesome Recreation Centers that cost less than 200 per year to join!!!. Many of these boroughs are as large, if not larger, than most towns found in Virginia.

Many who move to Virginia beach want to live near the beach, then realize many of the homes are priced outside their reach. This results in the home search moving Westward, but be careful!! If you and your family plan to spend the summers at the beach, it is easy to be almost 30 minutes from the Ocean Front, by interstate, and yes you will still be in Virginia Beach!! What I am trying to convey here is that Virginia Beach IS LARGE, it is one of the largest cities in Virginia

Consider the life styles too. We are about coastal living, well for the most part. Along the shore which goes from the shores of the Atlantic Ocean , up to the Chesapeake Bay and down the Lynnhaven inlet you will find people who embrace the coast life style. These are people who spend time on the water fishing, crabbing, boating, surfing or any combination. In addition, the life style doesn’t just end on the surface of the water, there is the local seafood too! From Blue crabs to the local catch of the day, the camaraderie that is found at local eateries such a Buoy 44 Seafood Grill and the micro breweries like Common Wealth Brewing Company.

If the coastal life sounds inviting to you and would like to explore moving to Virginia Beach, or the Hampton Roads area, contact us and we’ll help you navigate the South Hampton Roads Real Estate Market

What is a Luxury Home?

virginia beach luxury real estate

Purchasing a Luxury home

Purchasing a Luxury Home isn't the same process as purchasing a non-luxury home. Luxury homes tend to have a starting price of $500,000 or more, and this price puts them outside of the Federally guaranteed home loans that most non-luxury home buyers tend to use.

What exactly distinguishes a Luxury home from non-luxury homes?

Some may think initially that a luxury home is solely defined by size and price but that is only part of the equation. Luxury is personal belief or notion. However, there are characteristics that all luxury homes have in common:

Location, is key. Is the home located in a desirable location?
Is the homes architecture distinctive?
Does the home have Amenities that are outside the 'norm'?

  • Deep water dock with electric boat lift?
  • Elevators
  • Meditation rooms
  • Wine Room
  • Art Gallery
  • Million Dollar view

Essentially to determine if a home is in the luxury category, ask the question: Does the home go beyond what is typical in a particular market?

Virginia Beach Luxury Homes

In Virginia Beach, Va. Luxury home buyers have a large variety of homes to pick from, all with a different amenities offered by the home or the actual location of the property. In Virginia beach luxury homes can be found near water, either on or near the Chesapeake Bay, the Atlantic Ocean, on one of the many inlets, or on one of the fresh water lakes. There are your exceptions, too. Many luxury home buyers are want the quite country living, and are looking for grand homes with lots of acreage and woods, generally considered Wooded estates or country estates.

1. Deep water access
2. Lake Front
3. Ocean Front
4. Beach access
5. Beach neighborhood
6. Beach front
7. Wooded Estates
8. Gated or Private communities

Financing your Luxury home
