CAAR REAL ESTATE WEEKLY

NEWS & VIEWS Live Arts Ushers In Holiday Season With Unique Celebrating Over Eighty-Five Years Staging Of Classic Musical Guys And Dolls As the second offering in its subscription season Live Arts will present Guys and Dolls—book by Jo Swerling and Abe Burrows, music and lyrics by Frank Loesser—opening December 9, 2016 and running through January 15, 2017. Ray Nedzel, director of the production, sees the show as “a love letter to the American musical and a beautiful remembrance of the human energy that powered Times Square in the 1920s, when Damon Runyon created the unforgettable characters, and the 1950s, when Frank Loesser’s music and lyrics immortalized them.” But Nedzel doesn’t think of it as simply a nostalgia piece. “As we rehearse the show in today’s world, another theme is emerging—that what brings us together is stronger than what pulls us apart, and that love is stronger than fear.”

Bree Luck, Interim Managing Artistic Director, says, “I am thrilled to watch our talented community bring this classic musical comedy to the Live Arts stage.” Reviewing the fabulous play list of the show’s score, Luck reminds us of its many enduring musical classics. “Some of my favorite songs are in Guys and Dolls, including Luck Be a Lady Tonight, I’ve Never Been in Love Before, and Sit Down You’re Rockin’ the Boat. This timeless musical is a royal flush replete with toe-tapping song and dance numbers, vibrant and memorable characters, side-splitting comedy, and a story that will lift your spirits on the darkest of nights!” PERFORMANCE SCHEDULE: Guys and Dolls will open on December 9, 2016 and run through January 15, 2017, with performances on: December 9, 10, 14, 16, 17 and January 4,6,7,11,13,14 at 8 p.m. December 15, January 5 and 12 at 7:30 p.m. December 18, January 8 and 15 at 2 p.m. TICKET INFORMATION: General Admission is $30; Senior/ Student tickets are $25; Wednesday performances are Pay-What-YouCan. Tickets can be purchased online at www.livearts.org or by calling the Live Arts Box Office at 434-977-4177, ext. 123. Friends of Live Arts get a 10% discount.

Enjoy Charlottesville’s Popular, Walkable, Downtown Lifestyle BY CELESTE M. SMUCKER

D

owntown Charlottesville offers jobs, restaurants, shopping and entertainment, a combination of features that bring a growing number of homebuyers wanting to live in a community that is vibrant, urban and walkable. Of course the highlight of the downtown area is the lively pedestrian mall—one of the few of its kind still thriving after years of operation. Downtown also appeals to a growing number of companies making it an important job center for the area and a place where employees can walk on the mall during breaks, eat interesting food for lunch and enjoy the many entertainment venues available there after hours. The City of Charlottesville dates back to 1762 when the Virginia General Assembly set aside 50 acres of land around the Albemarle County Courthouse. Called Charlottesville, the fledgling city was named in honor of Queen Charlotte Sophia of Mecklenburg-Strelitz, the wife of King George the III of England. The original city was laid out in half acre lots on four east-west and five northsouth streets that today form the heart of downtown. In 1982, Charlottesville’s entire Historic District—88 structures—was added to the National Register of Historic Places, an official list of properties considered worthy of preservation and administered by the National Park Service. The City also recognizes these properties and requires their owners to seek approval from a Board of Architectural Review before making changes to their exteriors. These carefully preserved historic structures offer Charlottesville residents a continuing connection to the past, while at the same time, a growing tech sector is moving our city firmly into the future. Individuals and families who live near downtown enjoy a contemporary lifestyle in a walkable, urban setting that offers a range of prices plus housing styles that include condos, cottages, and historic homes. Downtown truly has something for everyone.

The Downtown Real Estate Market There is no question that the downtown market is doing well, although it is limited by a lack of inventory. Robert Ramsey with Roy Wheeler Realty Co. portrayed it as “strong,” and a place where bidding wars are increasingly common. He described a recent sale of a 1920s two-story brick colonial north of downtown and five blocks from the mall. The home was next to an adja-

cent, vacant lot that was also for sale and could have gone to a separate buyer. The house had not been renovated since the 1960s and although it had a modern electric panel box, there were no grounded outlets and the plumbing was original. Ramsey described its overall condition as “deplorable.” The house listed for $640,000, the extra lot for an additional $225,000. Both sold the first day to the same family who wanted the vacant lot as play space for their children.

While downtown primarily offers older homes, buyers that want the benefits of new construction have a few alternatives. Rob Alley with RE/MAX Realty Specialists said the market is the best it’s been in the last ten years. He told of a recent listing near downtown on Druid Avenue that was “aggressively priced at $249,000” and sold in less than 30 days. “Four years ago that would not have happened,” he said. This kind of demand for homes can only be good news for sellers. Inessa Telefus with Loring Woodriff Real Estate Associates recently had 40 different parties show up at an open house in Belmont. The home received multiple offers and ultimately sold for significantly more than the asking price. She attributed this in part to the lack of inventory, and in part to the fact that the home was in good shape with “a lot of character.” Earlier in the year she took a listing in the neighborhood near the old Martha Jefferson Hospital. A small brick ranch, it sold as soon as she put the sign in the yard. Cynthia Viejo, with Nest Realty Group is also enthusiastic about the current downtown market that she said “continues to be very strong.” She added that, at the same time, “prices are going up,” and often buyers are forced to compromise on the amenities they want in a home or must be willing to do serious renovations.

While downtown primarily offers older homes, buyers that want the benefits of new construction have a few alternatives. Charif Soubra is the Sales Manager for Southern Development Homes’ Burnet Commons, a neighborhood of new homes and town homes just eight minutes from downtown. In reference to the market he declared that “everything is hot,” and while buyers are snapping up resale homes, many see the value in new construction

where they can enjoy more amenities. He gave as examples the contemporary design his company offers along with roof top decks. Watch for two new developments coming soon from Southern Development Homes, Belmont Station and Belmont Point.

Downtown Lifestyle A big part of the appeal of living downtown is walkability. For families that live very close-in some even give

up one of their cars while others use them less, preferring to walk or bike to work, to shop, or to meet a friend for lunch. In addition to convenience, walkability makes economic sense. A 2015 study conducted in Austin, Texas— home to the University of Texas—found that a one percent increase in a neighborhood’s walkability score was associated with a $1,329 increase in property values. Less walkable, but close-in, ar-

eas benefited as well although to a lesser extent. And a May 15, 2015 Press Release from the National Association of REALTORS® stated that walkable areas are “inherently more affordable” since individuals living that close-in usually spend only 43 percent of their income on housing and transportation, compared to those living in non-walkable areas, who spend nearer 48 percent. The centerpiece of downtown Charlottesville is the pedestrian mall, the first phase of which was completed in 1976. Clearly the planners deserve congratulations as our mall is one of just a few such attempts at this model of downtown renewal that have survived. Charlottesville’s mall is longer than most, comprising seven blocks closed to traffic with over 30 restaurants and 120 shops and boutiques of all varieties.

Downtown draws the “full gamut” of buyers attracted by popular downtown features such as the Ix Art Park just south of the mall.

curred there over the last 60+ years. His family’s home on Park Street where he grew up was just three houses from the country long before the bypass or the Downtown Mall. Today he offices on 8th Street in the same building where his mother once went for appointments with her obstetrician. Ramsey described some of the people who today call the downtown area home. Prominent among them are downsizing Boomers. These are folks who once moved out to Ivy and other outlying areas when they had families, but now are ready to give up a car. “Cutting down on drive time saves on gas, mind and soul,” Ramsey said. Others relocate to be free of taking care of a home and yard choosing a condo, while still others prefer the reduced maintenance of a small house and yard. Some who choose the downtown area love the prospect of renovating

tracted by popular downtown features such as the Ix Art Park just south of the mall. The Art Park offers many free cultural and civic activities such as outdoor concerts and an artists’ showcase, and visitors can also enjoy a variety of eating establishments without leaving the property. Ix property manager Erin Hall encourages everyone to come join the festivities stating that “the Art Park is busy every day.” Downtown neighborhoods can also be a good source of rental properties for investors, Soubra said. The area’s easy access to the local hospitals makes it a popular place for medical residents along with other young professionals needing to rent a home in a convenient location. Alley called the Belmont area “investor friendly” since landlords can expect rent payments to cover their monthly mortgage obligation. While downtown can be pricey, it still attracts first-timers. Telefus worked with a couple, both with jobs at the medical center, who were able to afford a first home in the mid-$300,000 range and chose to locate near downtown. She said that a lot of buyers in the market now understand the advantage of the current low interest rates, though she warned they should act now since things could look very different come spring.

Urban Community

“When you live downtown you can walk to restaurants and entertainment,” Telefus said. Viejo described the downtown area as a “happening” place where people enjoy walking around and eating in the many local restaurants. Another downtown feature that she says adds “vibrancy” to the area is the Charlottesville City Market, open Saturdays from 7 a.m. until noon from April through December. “Walkability is the number one desire” of buyers that come to Burnet Commons looking for their next place to live, Soubra said, referencing clients who walk to work downtown and a

professor who bikes to UVA. Downtown buyers also appreciate “being part of Charlottesville instead of just living in it,” he continued. Living downtown also appeals to home buyers for whom green values are important. This could be expressed as making an older home more energy efficient or buying a new one. “However,” Soubra said, “while sustainability and walkability both add value to a home, walkability trumps it all.”

Downtown Buyers Robert Ramsey with Roy Wheeler Realty Co. is very familiar with downtown and all the changes that have oc-

older homes, Ramsey explained. They take homes built between the 20s and the 50s and modernize them keeping what’s good. For this group, starting over with a new house is less appealing, in part because they often sit on small lots that are “a deterrent to Boomers, especially if they come from two to twenty acres out in the country.” While these buyers no longer want the acreage they still like the idea of a yard with a garden, Ramsey explained. Downtown draws the “full gamut” of buyers, Viejo said. She has worked with young people, both single and married, young families and retirees at-

Families who love living in town are willing to pay higher prices and possibly compromise on amenities to be as close as possible to downtown. They come from out of the area, from out of state, and even from out of the country, but many come from as close as Albemarle County or the Route 29 corridor. These are people who are looking for an “urban community,” Ramsey said. Charlottesville’s many cultural activities are very attractive Telefus explained, but a huge benefit of Charlottesville is the nice views. She has sold property to clients who looked at a variety of homes and locations and ultimately bought downtown for the convenience and walkability, but it was often the beautiful view that finally clinched the sale. If you want to live where you can walk to the Downtown Mall, ask your agent about moving to one of the close-in neighborhoods where you can be part of a vibrant local music and restaurant scene, buy vegetables at the City Market and most of the time, leave your car at home. n Celeste Smucker is a writer, blogger and author who lives near Charlottesville.

Charlottesville’s Popular

Belmont

Neighborhood

WALK TO THE DOWNTOWN MALL, enjoy a leisurely cup of coffee with friends and family without leaving your neighborhood, and maybe even let go of a car. If all of this appeals, consider the popular walkable community of Belmont offering a downtown lifestyle that is still affordable, though agents warn, “not for long.” The Belmont neighborhood dates back to Charlottesville’s earliest days when a combination of factors made it a popular and convenient place to live. Today it attracts a diverse population of residents from first-timers to downsizers who are ready to leave suburbia behind to enjoy a walkable, downtown lifestyle. Working Belmonters, whose jobs are downtown, may walk or ride their bikes to work, while those whose employment is elsewhere appreciate short commutes to places like UVA and the medical center. Belmont is also popular with investors and those who relish the challenge of updating and renovating a home. While Belmont’s real estate market has experienced some ups and downs, now is a good time for sellers thinking about a move, to give their agent a call and learn what their house will bring in today’s market that is full of ready and willing buyers.

Historic Belmont The Belmont lifestyle has roots in Charlottesville’s very early history when much of its popularity was due to its prime location at the intersection of two major routes (paths by today’s standards), Three Notched Road—a reference to distinctive marks placed on trees marking the route to and from Richmond—and Old Scottsville Road— connecting Charlottesville to the site of Albemarle County’s first courthouse in Scottsville. The neighborhood grew in size in the late 1800s when the Belmont

is Close-In and Walkable BY CELESTE M. SMUCKER

Cynthia Viejo with Nest Realty Group, a 35-year veteran of the real estate business, has been keeping an eye on the Belmont market since the 1980s when she recognized its potential as an up-and-coming neighborhood. However it wasn’t until the year 2000, when investors began buying and flipping homes and buyers who couldn’t afford

resale potential. She added that they should choose an agent well-versed in the area’s homes and market for the best advice on these issues. Belmont also attracts investors explained Rob Alley with RE/MAX Realty Specialists who described the market there as “investor friendly,” because rents are high enough to cover their mortgage payment. Alley added that many first-timers can still buy a home in Belmont where prices less than the FHA maximum are available.

Play Close to Home While walkability and the nearness of the downtown mall are big plusses for Belmonters, often they can find the amenities they want right in their own neighborhood. Viejo explained that Belmont’s downtown also has a number of trendy spots that keep people on that side of the bridge describing it as “an extension” of what is attractive about the downtown mall. “People can walk out their front doors, walk to downtown Belmont and enjoy wonderful, delightful restaurants that are fun and vibrant.” She recently enjoyed a friend’s birthday party there and said, “it was nice seeing the vibrancy of the area.”

Belmont Buyers

Land Company purchased an estate called Belle-mont and divided it into building lots. In a description of this rapidly growing area, local historian James Buck described it as a “quaint country suburb of a rapidly expanding Charlottesville.” In the early 1900s, Belmont’s nearness to the railroad contributed to its prominence as did the demand for housing amongst its employees who wanted the convenience of living near their jobs.

Belmont’s Real Estate Market Today Belmont attracts a wide range of buyers from Millennials working downtown to retirees and pre-retirees ready to give up the headaches of maintaining a large house and lot in the suburbs.

property north of downtown began looking in Belmont, that things really started to change. Viejo described the current market there as “very strong,” warning that prices are climbing. One result is that often buyers are forced to compromise on the amenities they want, which could mean living with less square footage, only one bathroom, or a smaller than desirable yard. She described one of her recent Belmont listings priced at the low end of the market at $249,000. The size was “just shy of 800 square feet, with expansion possible,” she said. She advises buyers to look for a home with “good bones” that can be renovated taking care not to overdo. It’s alright to “personalize,” she said but cautions buyers not to lose sight of

Belmont appeals to people looking for a place with a community feel. Its walkability contributes to this feeling as the more people are out and about on foot, the more they see and meet their neighbors compared to places where most people walk only as far as their car prior to driving somewhere else. Often Belmont buyers are people who don’t like the suburbs but “march to a different drummer,” explained Robert Ramsey with Roy Wheeler Realty Co. While some could afford to live elsewhere, they choose to stay for all of Belmont’s benefits. Others are people with grown kids who decide to move back to town after a time in the suburbs and want to downsize their space but still live in a single family, detached home. Are you in the market for a home? If you like the charm of an older home and neighborhood, want to live near the downtown mall and enjoy leaving your car behind when you meet friends for brunch, ask your agent about Belmont. n Celeste Smucker is a writer, blogger and author who lives near Charlottesville.
