Roy Wheeler Realty Company is honored to announce they have been named the Charlottesville Chamber’s 2017 Hovey S. Dabney award recipient for Corporate Citizenship. The award will be presented at a lunch on February 15th at the Holiday Inn. Company Broker and CEO, Michael Guthrie, responded to the announcement by saying, “We appreciate the Chamber’s support and are deeply honored. When I came to Charlottesville in 2005, I made two promises to our company: 1) that we would strive to be the very best real estate company and 2) that we would be servant-hearted in our approach to business and to our involvement in the community. This recognition affirms that we have had some success in doing both. There are many companies who are deserving, and I stand in awe of our company being listed amongst the business enterprises who have been previously named.”

ocal agents look forward to an active commercial real estate market with robust activity continuing throughout 2017. Look for high occupancy rates in the downtown market along with the growing popularity of adjacent areas as expanding businesses scramble to find space and still remain close-in. South of town, the recent opening of 5th Street Station is already contributing to demand for nearby residential properties and impacting commercial investment from apartment complexes and strip centers to new subdivisions. And these are just a few examples of activity in our area.

National Association of REALTORS® Chief Economist Lawrence Yun, speaking at NAR’s 2016 national convention last November, cautioned that in 2017 “the likelihood of a rising interest rate environment” introduces some uncertainty into the situation. However, overall he “expressed confidence that commercial real estate activity should remain on an upward trajectory,” a prediction with which our local agents agree.

Strong Economy Promotes Commercial Growth Reid Murphy, REALTOR® and partner at BMC, Building Management Company, said that the “power of our local economy,” makes our area attractive to investors and contributes to the growth of Charlottesville’s commercial market. Part of this, of course, is the insulating impact of UVA and the Medical Center.

angle REALTORS®. He added that the activity is “across the board,” including both leases and sales and that “net income prices are still close to, or at, an all-time historic high.” “The market is still doing great,” said John Pritzlaff, with Thalhimer. He pointed to activity throughout our region from Brookhill Development, proposed for an area between Polo Grounds Road and Forest Lakes South and recently approved by Albemarle Supervisors, to 5th Street, the IX Building and West Main. Tanashia Washington with Woodard Properties expressed excitement about the increasing number of calls she is receiving from business owners looking for space of all kinds. One particular trend she has noticed is more and more inquiries about properties to purchase rather than lease. Steve Melton with Virginia Land Company agrees with this assessment

Other factors at work here include our area’s natural beauty, and the desirability of a lifestyle that appeals to employers and employees alike explaining, in part, why Charlottesville is often on top ten lists such as Best College Towns, Best Places to Retire, Best Cities for Entrepreneurs and many more. The strength of our residential real estate market is another big factor that supports increasing expansion of the commercial market. CAAR’s recent Year End Market Report showed a 12.7 percent year over year increase in home sales in the last quarter of 2016, accompanied by an impressive 19 day decrease in the median number of days that homes stayed on the market and a 14.6 percent decrease in the inventory of homes for sale.

Agents Enthusiastic Charlottesville is “seeing really good activity and continues to perform extremely well,” said Peter Wray with Tri-

stating that many of his customers are also choosing to buy, a choice that surely reflects faith in the long-term strength of our local economy. Bill Howard, owner and broker at Real Estate III Commercial Properties, Inc., described the Charlottesville market as “very good.” He added that “lots of rental office space that has been on the market for years is now leasing up,” definitely good news. Howard explained that other sectors of the commercial market such as retail centers are also doing well while prospective tenants looking for industrial and warehouse space are frustrated by inventory shortages. It is not just close-in areas where commercial business is booming. Bill Gentry with Jefferson Land & Realty in Madison County just acquired two new commercial listings. “We are having an increase in inquiries on commercial properties,” he said and “we find this very pleasing.”

Here are some highlights of commercial activity throughout our area.

Pantops Wray’s strip center on Route 250 in Pantops is a good example of recent retail activity in that area. He said the center, which is relatively new, is “leasing up well.” One tenant, Mattress Firm, leased 4,000 square feet, and leases are signed for all but two remaining vacancies there. Five years ago the Virginia Land Company started building 1415 Rolkin Court, a Pantops-area office project now featuring a variety of medical offices and other businesses including a mortgage company. Today they are happy to report only three remaining vacancies. Melton is now looking forward to the opening of another, nearby office building called the Monscane Center— from a native American term describing an area occupied by a local Monacan tribe—located behind CarMax at the site of the old White House Motel. His company is in process of submitting paperwork to the county for approval on this three-building project that will offer 45,000 square feet of much-needed Pantops-area office space, available for either purchase or lease.

Route 29 North Activity in this busy corridor includes the recent acquisition of The Shops at Stonefield by New York-based O’Connor Capital Partners Pritzlaff said. The popular Maine-based clothing store, L.L. Bean, has recently leased space there, and will soon be joined by Midici, The Neapolitan Pizza Company, featuring natural, non-GMO ingredients.

restaurants and a gym. In the future, a hotel may also be part of the picture. In Madison County, Gentry reports the just opened Family Dollar north of Sheetz at Cornerstone Square is “doing a heck of a business.” He expects this to open the door to other businesses who will want to capitalize on this success and locate there as well. Another recently-opened Madison business is Bald Top Brewing Co., a micro-brewery that brought in music and food trucks for a Friday, Saturday and Monday (Dec 30,31 and Jan 2) grand opening weekend. The good news, Gentry explained, is that it was a huge success, the bad news is that they ran out of beer on the second day. Gentry is now in conversation with another company interested in opening a similar business in Madison.

5th Street

elderly neighbors are waiting for critical home repairs right now. Your support will keep them safe.

Seniors Safe at Home helps local senior citizens age in place by taking care of urgent repairs: leaking roofs, access ramps, plumbing and electrical issues, failed furnaces, and more.

The recent opening of 5th Street Station has been warmly welcomed by existing south side residents who love staying close to home when they shop for groceries and a host of other goods and services. The center is also bringing more residents to the area who, in the past, rejected the south side because it was too far from essential services. As more retailers open their doors there, the interest grows. Pritzlaff says the Alamo Draft House theater will soon be open for business and that there is a push for new restaurants to locate nearby. He explained that the next phase of this center will be more “entertainment focused.” In addition, in April Martha Jefferson expects to open a 4,000 square foot facility that will offer a family practice with extended hours—walk-ins accepted. Wray advises that other retailers wanting to take advantage of 5th Street Station traffic will be able to find a home nearby when a center, to be located between the Holiday Inn and the entrance to 5th Street, moves through its final stages of approval. In other activity in that area look for two big, new apartment complexes that Pritzlaff says will be finished this calendar year.

Low vacancy rates in the downtown market mean business owners are looking to nearby, close-in locations when they need more space. Preston Avenue, which Murphy says is “trending” with a “downtown vibe” is popular especially for companies looking for a second location. For example, one of Murphy’s projects at 805 Preston at Forest is now fully leased and features Carpet Plus and Blue Ridge Pack and Ship. When MarieBette opens their new bakery there, customers will be able to pick up

fresh baked goods when dropping off a package or shopping for carpet. Another close-in area that has a lot to offer business owners is McIntire Plaza, home to Circa and C-ville Coffee. One of the benefits of this project, Washington said, is its prime location. She added that the center is affordable allowing entrepreneurs to thrive and attracting what she calls “cool, unique businesses.” The center can accommodate a wide range of enterprises from those needing a small office space like a therapist or tutor moving into their first commercial space after working from home, to, at the other extreme, businesses needing a large warehouse space. While space is currently available, she is confident it will fill up fast. A little further out, a BMC project on River Road offers a hard-to-find industrial opportunity. Two spaces were just recently leased; Digs, Inc, specializing in expert excavation, and Dos Amigos, a landscaping company. Some show-room quality space is still available there, Murphy said. South of downtown, the IX Building is almost all leased, Pritzlaff said. Once a busy textile factory, this project is now a seventeen-acre, mixed-use business center offering space for office, retail, restaurants, and arts and crafts. Conveniently located just two blocks from the downtown mall it features green spaces, free parking and community events. Today IX visitors can enjoy Brazos Tacos and stop by Sweethaus when they are ready for dessert. Later this year, they can also enjoy brews from the award winning Three Notch’d Brewery whose Brewmaster, Dave Warwick, has received Virginia Craft Brewers Cup medals for four different Three Notch’d beers. The company will move its production facility from its current location on Grady Avenue to the IX Building and add a restaurant. The Richmond-Times Dispatch quoted CEO George Kastendike as saying the IX Building appealed “because of the personality of the location.” Still another active, close-in area of town is West Main which Pritzlaff said is “doing very well.” The area is seeing the construction of apartments that will appeal to students, he said, calling it a “student housing hub.” In addition, visitors can look forward to staying at the Quirk Hotel, which he described as “an art-focused boutique hotel,” that will be a nice place for out-of-towners to mingle at the rooftop bar. Charlottesville’s commercial market had a great year in 2016 and agents predict that in 2017 our area will enjoy more of the same in just about every part of town. n Celeste Smucker is a writer, blogger and author who lives near Charlottesville.

Home Inspections Are a

GOOD INVESTMENT BY MARILYN PRIBUS

A

n important component of a home sale is an expert inspection of the property. In fact, most REALTORS ® strongly recommend that an offer to buy includes a home-inspection contingency. Generally the buyer pays for the inspection but this, like many things, is negotiable. A home inspector will examine a property, then detail findings and trouble spots. Exactly how important is this? “I always recommend an inspection,” declares Paul McArtor, of Charlottesville’s Montague, Miller & Co. REALTORS®. “For example, I had a buyer of a new home who decided to spend the $400 for a home inspection.” A few minor problems were found which the builder corrected. “One of the items,” continues McArtor, “was the back of a drain pan that had been accidentally flattened during installation of the upstairs heating and air conditioning system. Seemed like a minor thing, but if the HVAC had leaked it could have caused a ton of damage to the upstairs and ceiling below.” On the other hand, he continues, some people choose not to have a home inspection. In one such case, buyers discovered plumbing and electrical issues as well as some wood rot after the sale was closed and had to fork over quite a bit to repair things. “If they had known beforehand,” McArtor notes, “they could have negotiated with the seller about paying for repairs or have opted out of the purchase altogether.”

What Do Home Inspectors Do? “We do it all,” says Buddy Carlisle of Carlisle Home Inspection Services, a Charlottesville business for 27 years. “New and existing homes and light commercial.” When you engage a home inspector, Carlisle explains, you are hiring a professional who has training and experience in the building industry. Inspectors evaluate the condition of the

property’s major systems and its structural integrity. They also identify areas that need to be watched, repaired, or replaced. For example, moisture, mold, and water damage are often signs of significant leakage that can be serious and expensive to correct. An inspector who discovers a major problem will usually recommend an appropriate professional with expertise analyzing that particular situation. There are a number of local home inspectors in our region and each may have a slightly different list of items to inspect. That said, inspections generally cover a property from top (roof) to bottom (foundation) and everything in between including electrical, plumbing, heating and air conditioning systems as well as attics, interior and exterior walls, doors and windows, cellars, fireplaces and other items. A comprehensive inspection will take at least a couple of hours, depending on the size of the property, and Carlisle encourages people to accompany the inspector. This way you can ask questions and gain a better understanding of the systems in the home. He explains that home inspections often uncover problems that are a surprise to the homeowner. “When

you live in a house you overlook everything,” he observes. “We go through the attic and find leaks people don’t know about. Another thing is safety especially with electrical systems.”

New Protection for Consumers Today individuals performing home inspections in Virginia may choose to receive certification in this field, but this is not required. In fact, people can set themselves up as home inspectors without any sort of certificate or true expertise. Starting July 1, 2017, however, this changes. A couple of years ago the General Assembly moved to restrict inspections on new construction to Certified Home Inspectors who complete the special building code training module required for a New Residential Structure (NRS) specialty designation. In addition, as of that date, home inspectors—for both new and existing properties—must have a license issued by the Virginia Board of Asbestos, Lead and Home Inspectors. Individuals with unexpired certifications previously issued by the Board will receive a license to work as a home inspector, but those without certification who wish to become licensed will


THE

Should I Get An Inspection Before I Put My Property On The Market? “It’s not a bad idea,” says REALTOR® McArtor, “but I don’t usually recommend it. The buyer will most likely do one anyway which means you spent additional money that you didn’t have to. Also, it’s possible that you will fix items the buyer may not have asked for. That also could cost you extra money.” On the other hand, a “clean” inspection report can be a positive selling point, especially on an older property. Whether you are buying or selling, it makes good money sense to understand what home inspections are all about. n Before Marilyn Pribus and her husband put their California house on the market, they paid for a home inspection, made suggested corrections, and left the report on the kitchen counter as a selling point.

have to apply for licensure. Only inspectors with an NRS specialty license will be able to perform inspections on new structures. These regulations will clearly protect consumers from unreliable “inspectors.” But wait a minute, Carlisle cautions, people have a way of sneaking around requirements. “People might call themselves something else other than home inspector,” he says. He suggests people seeking a home inspection ask to see the inspector’s license. “The American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI) is the oldest professional group around with the largest membership in the country,” he adds. ASHI offers a variety of training, both online and in seminars. “Being a member would also be a very good recommendation.”
