Roy Wheeler Realty Hosts Poker Run Roy Wheeler Realty Co. is sponsoring a Poker Run on Saturday, April 26, to raise funds for 11-year-old Alyssa R. of Zion Crossroads. Alyssa has Recurrent Respiratory Papillomatosis, a disease in which tumors grow in the air passages, leading from the nose and mouth and into the lungs. Eventually the tumors will block the air passageway and breathing will be difficult. There is no cure for RRP and the best treatment in children is to keep removing the tumors as they grow. Alyssa is now scheduled for another surgery in May 2014. Medical expenses continue to become unbearable. Alyssa’s father is also in need of heart valve replacement surgery but refuses to get his surgery completed until Alyssa is better. You can help this family in need by participating in the Poker Run. Registration is from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. at Roy Wheeler Realty, 5574 Richmond Road, Troy. $20 per rider; $5 per passenger. Bikes out at 11:00 a.m.; cars out at 11:45 a.m. Wind your way through Louisa and Fluvanna and finish at the Dogwood Restaurant in Palmyra for prizes and music. For more information, contact Susan Stewart 434-242-3550 or Kim Johnson at 434-465-5138.

The Free Bridge Quintet will be joined by jazz guitar master John Abercrombie to present a night full of innovative jazz music.

NEW to the MARKET

Give4Good Greater Charlottesville: First EVER National Online Giving Day is coming to our community! on the drums, Peter Spaar on bass, John D’earth on trumpet and flugelhorn, and in 2013 welcomed Butch Taylor on piano. The quintet has been a staple of the greater Central Virginia jazz scene for more than 10 years. Joining the Free Bridge Quintet will be John Abercrombie, one of the great innovators of jazz guitar. Over a career spanning more than forty years and nearly fifty albums, he has established himself as one of the truly unique voices in modern jazz, favoring unusual sounds and nontraditional ensembles. John Abercrombie made his ECM leader debut in 1974 with the aptly named “Timeless.” He has been one of the label’s core artists ever since. He has played on more than fifty ECM sessions, both as a leader and as a highly creative contributor to recordings with Charles Lloyd, Kenny Wheeler, Jan Garbarek, Collin Walcott, Jack DeJohnette, Enrico Rava, Barre Phillips, Dave Liebman and more. Along the way his playing has evolved, becoming as he says, both more ‘free’ and more ‘traditional’. His 2011 recording “Without A Song,” with Joe Lovano, Drew Gress and Joey Baron, reflected upon the music that first inspired him in the 1960s, taking stock of the freedoms implied in the music of Coltrane, Coleman and Rollins, and emphasizing his musical connections to Bill Evans and to guitarist Jim Hall. Tickets for the concert are $15 for the general public, $8 for students and free for UVA Students who reserve in advance. Tickets can be purchased by calling the Arts Box Office at 434.924.3376 or by visiting the Arts Box Office. Old Cabell Hall is located on the south end of UVA’s historic Lawn, di-

For others it is a source of fun, whether that means boating, water skiing, swimming or just relaxing on a long pier.

One of many reasons people choose to live on or near water is that at the end of the day, it offers an escape from the stress of work. Vicki Wilson, Principal Broker/Owner of Monticello Country Realtors, summarizes this with one of her company’s favorite sayings about waterfront life: “Vacation at home year round.” Like a lot of people who seek water front property, Wilson grew up on a lake in the Midwest. It was cold there in the winter, cold enough to ice skate on the lake, not an experience that is available at Lake Monticello where she lives today and has her business.

Rick Walden, with Virginia Estates, Inc., grew up in a subdivision that was walking distance from a swamp and a bird sanctuary. As a result he learned to love water early on and describes it as “soothing.” He lives today surrounded by ponds that he put in himself after he moved and discovered how much he missed being near water. Of course people are also drawn to water because they like activities like boating, swimming, fishing or water skiing.

The Waterfront Market Waterfront and water access properties are doing well. Wilson described the inventory at Lake Monticello as “very low.” Of the homes on the market in her area, quite a few are under $200,000 which makes them good options for first time buyers and people looking for a second home, she explained.

Walden specializes in rural properties, many of which front rivers and streams. Regarding the market he said, “I have sold more this winter than the last two years combined.” He currently has a 2,000-acre listing on the Rappahannock River, which is also a highly productive farm. A number of environmental groups have expressed interest in this property with the intent of putting it into a conservation easement. Part of its appeal is its uniqueness. “There are not many properties that size on the water,” Walden said. The farm comes complete with a sense of history exemplified by the manager who lives on site and whose family has managed this acreage for four generations. Lake Anna is another very popular waterfront community for people seeking either a second home or a permanent place to live year round. The market there improved greatly last year, according to Barbara Robison with Lake Anna Realty who added that it “continues to improve.” She has just written three contracts on Lake Anna homes helped along, she said, by the continuing low interest rates. Libby Sandridge with Dockside Realty agrees, saying that the market is “definitely picking up.” She explained that 2013 was better than 2012 and she already has had a great first quarter in 2014. “The market finally leveled out,” she said and “the only way to go is up.” She has several Lake Anna lots under contract. Sandridge also works at the smaller Lake Louisa, surrounded by the gated community of Blue Ridge Shores. There “homes are moving,” she said, “even the ones that are off water. We’re seeing lots of buyers and sellers in the market now,” she continued. Toni McQuair with Long and Foster Realtors, a Lake Anna specialist, agrees stating that “last year was a terrific market.” She experienced a bit of a slow down this year due to the winter weather but now its “full speed ahead.“

She added that she is “looking forward to another good year in 2014.”

Who is Moving to the Water? Lots of people who buy water properties are second homebuyers, McQuair said. Many are from Northern Virginia and Maryland, “but we also get a few from Richmond.” Some of the buyers are retirees or people close to retirement who are purchasing a second home where they intend to settle permanently later. For the most part they are people who can drive there in less than two hours, making it easy to get away for the weekend. “There has been a real demographic shift in the last ten years,” McQuair said, explaining that today there are many more permanent residents in the

area than there once were. It helps that there are now essential services nearby such as a Food Lion, a Dollar General, several new restaurants, a veterinarian, an attorney and a liquor store. These commercial services make it easier for people who want to settle there full time. Robison estimates that about 50 percent of Lake Anna residents are full time today, the rest are weekenders. She just sold a property to some clients from Illinois who moved nearby for jobs and wanted a place to de-stress at the end of the work week. Others prefer to make the lake their full time residence. Robison has noticed that people who move there while they are still in the labor force often choose lake access properties

rather than water front. When they are ready to retire they sell that home and purchase a waterfront property in the same community. People like the protections of living in a subdivision, she said, but appreciate that Lake Anna is still “not as strict” as some others giving it what she called “a rural feeling” in an area which is just 90 minutes from DC. Many people who settle in Virginia waterfront properties are from up north and like to experience four seasons, but still want to escape the harsh winters, Sandridge explained. She has worked with a variety of different buyers from nearby areas, but also from New York and New Jersey. While some are retirees, “we’re seeing more people CONTINUED ON PAGE 30

Lease Option With a lease option the tenants agree to a lease and there may (or may not) be a purchase agreement, Widhalm said. Unlike a lease purchase, however, at the end of the lease the tenants are not obligated to buy the home. Instead the seller must offer them the option to purchase before they sell the house to anyone else. If they choose to pass on the option for whatever reason, the home can be sold to someone else instead.

Winslow said, which is counter to the guidelines for loan approval.

Rent to Own In a rent to own situation, the parties agree on an amount of money (above and beyond the monthly rent) to put towards the down payment on the home. A purchase agreement is not required, which is a risk for the seller, Widhalm explained. Depending on the contract, buyers may be at risk of losing their down payment money if they decide not to buy the house.

I

BY CELESTE SMUCKER, PHD

The parties may agree that the buyer will pay a monthly amount above and beyond the rent, which will be escrowed and applied to the down payment. If this is part of your agreement, consult your agent and negotiate with care, explained Leonard Winslow with Movement Mortgage. When the house is appraised the report will include an evaluation of the fair market rent for your house. If the escrowed amount is above and beyond that figure, you are in the clear. If however, your monthly rent payment reflects the fair market value for your home and part of that goes into escrow, the lender may prohibit the use of these funds for a down payment. In this instance you are essentially getting a break on the rent, and that is considered an ”inducement to purchase,”

t’s not a secret that mortgages are more challenging to obtain than they once were, which means people without established credit, or those with a negative credit history, can have difficulty buying a home. One alternative is an agreement that allows buyers to move into the home as a tenant and purchase it later based on terms worked out in advance with the seller. If you are considering such an arrangement called a lease purchase, a lease option or rent to own, it is important to be clear on exactly what you are agreeing to, explained Pat Widhalm with Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate III. While people often use these terms interchangeably, they really are quite different from each other.

all of the contingencies (such as loan approval) are met. Meanwhile, they live in the house according to the terms of the lease, Wilhalm said. With this arrangement, the buyers may be required to put down a security deposit for the lease agreement and an earnest money contract on the purchase, and these must be kept separate from each other. So, for example, sellers would not be allowed to use earnest money funds to pay for damage to the house should that become an issue. Lease purchase agreements work best when the buyer can qualify for the loan, but need extra time to do so, i.e., if they have a home on the market that must close before they buy another one, or if they are first time buyers with good credit but need more time to save a down payment.

Lease Purchase

Lease purchase agreements work best when the buyer can qualify for the loan, but need extra time to do so.

With a lease purchase agreement the two parties have a sales contract in which they agree on a price and other terms of purchase. The buyers are obligated to purchase the house so long as

Is a Lease to Purchase Right for You? Although there are risks to both parties, lease to purchase agreements can help sellers who need to move quickly, and buyers who need more time before they can qualify for a mortgage. On the down side, buyers may not be able to get their affairs in order to close on time, or they may change their mind about a house or neighborhood after they move in. However, if one of these arrangements looks right for you, ask your real estate professional for advice about how to negotiate terms that maximize your chance of a successful outcome. n Celeste Smucker is a writer, blogger and author. She lives near Charlottesville.

Is a Lease Purchase Option Right for You?

A lease to purchase option can be beneficial for people with credit challenges. These could include first time buyers without a credit history, self employed people, someone with a brand new job, or just coming out of bankruptcy or who needs to bring up their credit score. If you are in one of these situations, the right contract can be your path to home ownership. Consult your lender for assistance, Winslow said. “Ask them to help you set up a plan to fix your credit problem and then stick to it.”

Children and Money: Lessons in Self-Control ARTICLE WRITTEN BY: WEALTH MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS, INC. COURTESY OF: ERIC F. PARKER, CFP®, WEALTH ADVISOR BRANCH NAME: MORGAN STANLEY - CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA PHONE NUMBER: (434) 220-3809

W

e all know that money doesn’t grow on trees, but do your children really know how to manage it? Making the connection between saving first and spending later makes possible a lifetime of responsible money management. You can emphasize this connection by following a plan of age-appropriate techniques designed to emphasize the importance of controlling impulsive behavior.

HOME FINANCE

Why Starting Early Is Important Before teaching children about money, it is important to help youngsters control their impulses, potentially as early as age three. According to a study presented to the National Academy of Sciences in January 2011, a child’s self-control, as evidenced by traits such as conscientiousness and persistence in striving for goals, are strong predictors of success, including wealth, later in life.1 Children who scored lower on self-control were more likely to experience problems with saving, home ownership, credit and money management. Depending on the age of your children, consider whether the following suggestions are compatible with your views about children, self-control and money.

CAAR REAL ESTATE WEEKLY WWW.CAAR.COM

Ages 2 to 8 Buy a piggybank where your children can deposit money that they earn from chores or receive as gifts. A visual chart showing how much they save over time can be a motivator to save more.2 Provide an incentive to reach a savings goal. For example, when your children save $25, consider adding a few more dollars or letting them buy a treat under your supervision. Make children wait until after meals to eat treats or until an occasion such as a birthday to receive a special toy. The practice of delayed gratification can help build self-control at home, according to Mary Alvord, a clinical psychologist and author of Resilience Builder Program for Children and Adolescents.3

Ages 9 to 12 Consider whether you want to start an allowance. Tying an allowance to chores is a matter of debate, with some parents believing that children should not be paid for helping around the house. An allowance is a family decision that reflects your values about money. If you pay an allowance, require your children to put a portion of it into a savings account and use the remainder for personal items, gifts and entertainment.

Ages 13 to 18 Even if your family has means, consider letting your teenaged child have a part-time or summer job to earn their own money. Require them to set aside

a portion of their earnings for personal or college expenses. Establish clear rules for curfews and completion of homework before screen time. These practices will help older children control themselves without your intervention, according to Ms. Alvord. In a few years, your teenager will be approached by credit card companies looking for college-age customers. Now is the time to review the importance of paying a balance in full every month and reserving credit for items of value.

Ages 19 and Older If your family pays tuition and other college costs, require your college stu-

dent to pay at least a portion of personal expenses. If your adult child cannot find work and ends up living with you, resist the temptation to start paying your adult child’s bills or student loan debt. Let me work with you to identify opportunities to reinforce the connection between saving and responsible spending. Because starting early and presenting a consistent message will enable your children to develop sound habits that last a lifetime.

with young children buying homes in Lake Anna,” she said. Lake Anna has two sections, a public side with all of the commercial enterprises such as restaurants and marinas, and a private side which is all residential. Most buyers have a strong preference for one or the other, Sandridge said. Sandridge has sold property at both Lake Anna and Blue Ridge Shores. The latter is much smaller and quieter. It is also much closer to Charlottesville for people who want to commute there to work. “Often people move there because it is familiar, or because they know some of the other residents or grew up knowing someone there,” Sandridge said. It is a small family community where boating is allowed, but where jet skis are prohibited. Of the three lakes, Lake Monticello is the closest to Charlottesville. It also attracts a lot of second home buyers and people intending to retire and live there permanently eventually. There are many “programs and amenities for retirees,” Wilson said, including clubs and volunteer opportunities. Families also like Lake Monticello, which has beaches, boating and water skiing, and there is a new high school in the area that was ranked in the top 10 percent of all public high schools in the US and DC in 2013. Investors also like waterfront property because of its popularity, which gives it great resale value. Sandridge, who has investment property at both Lake Anna and Lake Louisa, believes that the former may have more potential for appreciation. Walden also mentioned the investment value of waterfront property saying, “When people call, inevitably 80 to 90 percent want privacy, mountain views and water. When waterfront property is available people are willing to pay more for it.” One of his investors lives overseas and is not intending to relocate any time soon. However he contacted Walden because he wants to purchase waterfront property now before it is all gone. Waterfront is also a good investment for those who want to get into the rental business.

The Riverfront Lifestyle

ADVERTISING

If you are someone who wants a more rural setting, a riverfront property may have more appeal than one on the lakes where everything is more developed. Walden has seen a lot of interest in his rural properties lately. He recently sold three of five parcels that are part of a 300-acre plot in Nelson County on two miles of riverfront. The buyers (who were looking for both views and water) included someone from the local area and a professional now living in Virginia Beach. If you like the idea of riverfront, consult a REALTOR® who is knowledgeable about this kind of property. For example, Peter Lee with Roy Wheeler Realty Co., explained that people looking at property on the north side of the James River would find they have to cross a railroad track to get to the water. In early days there was a towpath on this side of the river used to help move barges carrying goods down to Richmond. Eventually a track was built on the same tow path. Riverfront property may also come with flat or bottom land where building is prohibited due to flooding potential. Lee described one such listing he had which eventually sold to horse lovers who liked the flat area for riding. However someone with dreams of a home right on the riverfront would have been disappointed to learn they had to move back a ways to get a building permit.
